The Non-Initiation of Force Principle (NIOF) is the idea that no man is allowed by law or moral to initiate the use of force against another. It provides a limitation on the use of force that many other political systems can't meet. A dictatorship, where absolute power is granted to one man, violates this principle because the dictator is permitted to initiate force whenever he wants, which in turn causes the people to revolt. This NIOF Principle is the one of the key differences between the Libertarian Party and other political parties.
