The NAP is the only requirement members of the Libertarian Party must agree to. Is that a good standard? The Non-Aggression Principle (NAP) serves as a unifying ethos for members of the Libertarian Party, mandating a collective agreement to abstain from using force to achieve political or social objectives. Although the political landscape is rife with diverse ideologies, the NAP acts as a common ground for Libertarians, distinguishing them from other political affiliations. Instituted by the party’s founder, David Nolan, in 1971, this pledge was designed to characterize the party as a non-violent political entity, especially significant at a time when violence was a common political tool. Despite its inherent imperfections, the Libertarian pledge is celebrated for its capacity to instill focus and cohesion among party members, transcending the multifaceted ideologies and beliefs that reside within its ranks.
