"The usual libertarian explanation as to why it’s a rights-violation to yell 'fire!' in a crowded theatre is that doing so violates the theatre owner’s property rights. Or, if the owner is the one doing the yelling, then her doing so violates her implicit contract with the customers. But what if the theatre is unowned?" (08/09/11)
