Libertarianism is a political philosophy, not a moral one. Libertarianism is based upon one thing: The non-aggression principle. It is not a promise of hookers and drugs. In fact, it is very compatible with the teachings of Christ who taught peace. Libertarianism says that it is wrong for me to take your property without your permission, or damage it, or harm you (or kill you). The difference between Libertarianism and other political philosophies is that Libertarianism holds government officials to the same high standard of not being allowed to aggress. Therefore, we are against involuntary taxation, we are against the government interfering into what you ingest, and we are against government deciding the sleeping arrangements. (This does NOT mean that we approve of the recreational use of drugs, or sexual immorality. Those are non-sequitur..Vices are not crimes, and government should never be an instrument of vice prevention.) We are against the vast majority of wars. We are against the police committing acts of summary execution in the streets when their lives are not clearly in danger. We are against regulation of businesses. We are FOR peaceful trade with all people. We are FOR people keeping the money that they legitimately earn themselves. We are FOR allowing people to live where they want to live. We are FOR the concept of self-defense against aggressors. Before you go off on Libertarians, it might behoove you to at least know what we stand for.
