Crime

A crime is a violation of the law. Under capitalism, the acts that are criminal are those that violate the rights of others.

Solution to Crime

Under capitalism, a crime is any act that is a violation of the rights of another.

Cause of Crime

Criminals are those who choose to violate the rights of others.

Drugs

As the sale or use of any drug is not a violation of anyone’s rights, government’s role in such matters is laissez-faire — to leave them alone.

Death Penalty

Justice’s first purpose is not to punish evil; it is to reward the good.
