Under market anarchism, how would these kids' lives have been protected? Since they are not free to make contracts and all rights are protected by contracts, children under Anarchy have no rights until they're old enough to defend them with violence.



Given that the parent is not their proper guardian, as proved by the fact that he commited violent agression against them that cannot possibly be interpreted as being in their own interest (as a penicillin shot would be), their claim to punishment and compensation can be homesteaded by any court or individual. This has been described by both Rothbard and Block. So anyone as concerned as you are can take it in their hands.
