- In his book “Anarchy, State and Utopia”, Nozick asserts that all humans have certain fundamental rights, such as life, health, liberty, and property. And these rights cannot be taken away from the citizens. The state, he claims, as no moral authority over someone's property which has been justly acquired. He claims that if a person has justly claimed his property than the state does not have any jurisdiction to take that away from him.

Coercion, The State, and Anarchy

- Coercion, and subsequently the right to use violence, is the state’s sole method for functioning and existing. Without it, the state is powerless to exist credibly. Thus, at the core of political theory is the argument to justify the state’s use of coercion; without this, the state cannot be ethically justifiable. However, can a violent, or otherwise morally dubious act such as coercion, ever be truly justified. If enough good comes of it, surely it could be mitigated, but how much ‘good’ is enough....   [tags: the right to use violence, moral justification]
