A crime is the violation of the right(s) of other men by force (or fraud). It is only the initiation of physical force against others - i.e. the recourse to violence - that can be classified as a crime in a free society (as distinguished from a civil wrong). Ideas, in a free society, are not a crime - and neither can they serve as the justification of a crime.
