Building a Libertarian World

Liberty is not just advanced by rolling back the excesses of government but in the efforts we make to facilitate a world where we can coexist, respect each other’s property, and otherwise live peacefully together. Forgiveness and tolerance are pillars of that world. #amliberty

Are you Libertarian?

I like peace, people make much better company, co-workers and innovaters alive than dead.

I don’t like people touching my stuff without my permission.

I really don’t want someone taking my life.

I am glad to learn from mistakes, so let me make them.

I want to benefit from the successes that those mistakes gave me the wisdom to achieve, so let me keep what I earned.

I care about others and I can and will choose when, who and how I help others so don’t patronize me by justifying confiscation with appeals to charity.

Yeah, I’m a Libertarian, join me.

I’m the Libertarian Switzerland

I like to consider myself the Switzerland of Libertarians, in the sense I stay out of entangling alliances and wars within the Libertarian community and associate with everyone in it. (I socialize like I like my foreign policy).

Why? When I first started my libertarian awakening in 2007 it was Ron Paul/Tom Woods/Robert Murphy who were really foundational to me learning and embracing these ideas. In that I did end up reading and learning a lot of Austrian thought ala Mises/Rothbard/Hayek.

Although, I didn’t stop there I read on the literature and ideas of Milton & David Friedman, Robert Nozick, Ayn Rand, Steve Horwitz, George Selgin, Lawrence White, Deidre McCloskey, Arnold Kling, Jeffrey Tucker, Robert Heinlein and so many more great names in the Libertarian and/or economic traditions.

I can’t see myself denigrating any of it cause all of it illuminated me to so many beautiful ideas and helped me form my own current perspective on issues across the board.

In the desire for peace and diplomacy around the world and within the Libertarian community, I really enjoyed this discussion.
