Mik, I've expanded the blog posting to clarify what I think this language says. I see this as different from the Dallas Accord in at least the following ways:
- It summarizes/clarifies the LP's purpose and goal.
- It declares the the LP should unite voters who want more liberty.
- It implicitly rejects the two competing Pledge interpretations of "we're not revolutionaries!" and "smash the state!".
- It suggests an ideological baseline for the LP: never adding to aggression, seeking to banish it, and always advocating full rights to your body, labor, peaceful production, and voluntary exchanges.
- It explicitly says that principled Libertarians can disagree about the details of what constitutes aggression.
- It explicitly commits the LP to not contradicting anarchism (whereas the DA was implicit/unofficial).
- It implicitly commits the LP to not contradicting minarchism through Rothbard's tactic (admitted in a 1983 letter) of systematically opposing every possible function of government.
