The NAP states that violence is justified in defending your own property rights from aggressors.

However, does the NAP state that you have an obligation (or that it is "justified') to defend other people's property rights from aggressors?

I would think so, because it proscribes certain actions (unwarranted aggressiveness), so there's no real difference between an individual or a community responding to the perpetrator?

It's like, "Assault is immoral." + "Resisting immorality is permissible."
