Claiming that A has a dutyR to B to φ if and only if it is morally permissible for B to force A to φ, appears to present a choice between picking and choosing the kinds of injuries that generate a dutyR for A to abstain from inflicting them upon B, and subsuming B's making a civil claim against A under the rubric of permissible force. Even in the state of nature, I would be hard pressed to justify cold-cocking my neighbor's delinquent squirt for encroaching upon my personal space by micturating on my shoe.
