The libertarian NAP (Non-Aggression Principle) is your answer. If I take action that causes harm to another's person or property, the government (or, more properly, the victim's agent/representative) should properly take action against me. If, on the other hand, my actions harm no one, or harm only myself, ain't no one's business but mine. In a free society, you either reap the rewards, or suffer the consequences, of your own actions.
