You say you believe in "your right to swing your fist stops where another's
nose starts," but then acknowledge that basically all actions have utility
consequences for others and are not restricted to yourself. I agree with
that principle fully, and think many ignore it far too often, but I'm
pretty sure it's the libertarians who ignore it and you're basically at the
opposite end here.
