On Libertarianism

Libertarians see the individual as the basic unit of social analysis. Only individuals make choices and are responsible for their actions. Libertarian thought emphasizes the dignity of each individual, which entails both rights and responsibility. The progressive extension of dignity to more people — to women, to people of different religions and different races — is one of the great libertarian triumphs of the Western world.

  1. I completely agree. I believe the next great libertarian triumph will be the restoration of faith among humanity. This can only be achieved however through deregulation and alleviation of menial laws. Good luck with that considering the big bucks government derives from common error. Bravo though.
