RESPONSE TO FESER ON LIBERTARIANISM
In Block (2010) I had occasion to criticize Feser (2004). In Feser (2010) he took severe issue with my critique of his earlier work. The present article is my attempt to defend Block (2010) against Feser (2010). What are the issues involved? We disagree on libertarian theory being based upon the non-aggression principle (NAP), and on private property rights predicated upon homesteading. His example of Jones, the air-grabber, I claim is mistaken. Most germane to modern day sensibilities, he protests sharply against my contention that his view toward homosexuals is compatible with those of ISIS: namely, he is in effect calling for the death penalty for this group of people.
