The Michigan Peace and Liberty Coalition is founded on the philosophy of voluntaryism, or voluntarism, which holds that all human association should be voluntary. The moral principle supporting voluntarism is known as the NAP, or the non-aggression principle, which prohibits the initiation of aggressive force or coercion. The word ‘initiation’ is used here to make clear that voluntaryism does not oppose self-defense.
The Michigan Peace and Liberty Coalition is not a club, membership organization, religious group, government or corporation. The MPLC aims to enable like-minded sovereign and peaceful individuals to find one another and establish meaningful friendships locally, while advocating the use of education, persuasion, and non-violent resistance as the primary means to bring about freedom in our lifetime.
