[Previous] Marriage Considered Harmful | Home | [Next] Democrats


Basic libertarianism:

1) The market should be free.
2) The government should be smaller and less intrusive.
3) Society should aim to be more voluntary. People shouldn't have to do things they don't want to, when possible.
4) Defensive force is acceptable. Initiating force against peaceful people is not.
4b) Defensive force includes defending A) yourself B) anyone who wants you to defend him and who has the right to defend himself in the situation
4c) Force includes threat of force, and includes fraud.
5) All laws should involve a victim who did not want the crime to happen and is materially harmed by it. The rest should be repealed.
6) People have the right to life, liberty, and property.
