The non-aggression principle (or NAP; also called the non-aggression axiom, the anti-coercion, zero aggression principle or non-initiation of force) is an ethical stance that asserts that aggression is inherently wrong. In this context, "aggression" is defined as initiating or threatening any forcible interference with an individual or individual's property. In contrast to pacifism, the non-aggression principle does not forbid forceful defense. The non-aggression principle is considered by some to be a defining principle of natural-rights libertarianism.

BBC News talking points today re U.S.:
1) Majoring on the "bombs",
2) Saying that "America has never been so divided" (since this president came in),
3) Saying Bombs sent "to a growing list of people who have been critical of Donald Trump (so it must be his fault),
4) Saying at least 10 devices now,
5) Saying "It's Trump's language that's causing this",
6) Ron Christie "Tensions so high... so much fear... a lot of people on edge" (give us fear to feed on),
7) Continually using buzzword/phrases "febrile" and "As ever" (I'm pretty sure these are trigger or messaging phrases),
8) Facebook to "fact check mid term reports on site"!
