joelcorley,

Actually ... it's as long as he doesn't blow up or irradiate his neighbors. He could irradiate his neighbors through negligence - that's not reasonable or permissible behavior.

Indeed, that's more accurate. My point is a person could possess something that's not at all safe, and is EXTREMELY likely to explode at any second, and have that thing close to his neighbors... and that's OK under libertarian philosophy. As long as it doesn't ACTUALLY harm them.

I think very few people agree with that. Most people don't want to be exposed to great risk of harm any more than they want to be actually harmed.
