Walter Block on the Differing Views of Wenzel and Block on Libertarianism

Is response to my post, My Response to Walter Block's Non-Response ResponseDr. Walter Block:
Dear Bob:

I agree with you. I think that a more deep disagreement you and I have, underlying the extant one about privacy, is whether libertarian law applies to all property regardless of the owner’s wishes, or, whether individual owners may impose their own rules. I misspoke when I said that the best way to thrash out these issues is in the scholarly journals. I stand corrected by you. A book will do just fine as an alternative; it will be at least as good, and, probably, better. I look forward to seeing what you have to say on this important issue in a systematic manner that only a book (or a very long journal article) can allow.

Best regards,

  1. Would it be safe to say that the underlying argument here is designed rights vs. an objective ethics?
