What Libertarians aren’t!

Libertarians are not against public goods… they question whether centralized monopolistic government is the best institution to provide it and whether taxation is an ethical or effective way of funding it.

Libertarians are not against regulations… they question whether centralized monopolistic government is the best institution that can create fair rules that are fairly enforced and whether it’s able to respond quickly when it gets things wrong.

Libertarians aren’t against assisting those who aren’t well off… but questions whether centralized monopolistic government can do so efficiently and effectively and whether the level of taxation needed to fund inefficiency is ethical and creates more poor people in the process.

A decentralized competitive market of voluntary institutions such as enterprise, charity and community can provide public goods, Regulations and Welfare. While each institution may provide only a small piece in aggregate, the quantity will be greater and quicker to respond when something works or doesn’t.

Libertarians aren’t just about what people should have but how it shouldn’t be provided (without the inefficiency of involuntarism).
