The mugger's death at the hands of his would-be victim is entirely proper. The quoted person is even more evil than the mugger, for he would condemn every person to be a defenseless victim.
Conservatives are thrilled a woman with a concealed-carry permit shot and killed a 19-year-old would-be mugger.
That's not how justice works. The penalty for theft is not death, nor do we want it to be.
@MaggieBackup As much as I agree with the sentiment, I expect that protests that significantly hurt the government will start the death spiral that leads to outright dictatorship. Then again, the sooner we get to that state, the sooner it can die and people regain the possibility of freedom.
I don't crusade for gay rights, women's rights, minority rights, drug users' rights, etc. I'm an advocate for human rights, of which those are a natural subset. Human rights include all consensual behavior between adults, not just the ones that are currently making news.

"Approximately three-quarters of all homicide victims in America are killed by someone they know. And the real threat from strangers is quite different from what most fear: one-third of all Americans killed by strangers are killed by police." https://granta.com/violence-in-blue/#_ftn1
I'm an Objectivist who has "shrugged". It's time to look for exits.
Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
Mastodon is a decentralized "federation" of community-run Mastodon servers which are part of an even greater federation called "the Fediverse". No matter how many users are on the instance you join, you can still follow and interact with the millions of users on any other instance throughout the Fediverse!
This is a primarily English-speaking instance, although everyone is welcome.
