Libertarianism Philosophy Arguments: Happiness In Slavery

Happiness in Slavery

Politics and religion in Libertarian Thought. Are there any more controversial topics than these ? Sometimes the two intertwine and blur. The reason for this is that both have a fundamental effect on how we live. Because of this, our political choice becomes all the more important.

Some people find voting a waste of time. Perhaps it is so, but in that way they do not exert their influence on their own society. With the elections coming, I believe it is primordial to give reason a voice in this debate. This is why I contend that there …

Harrison Bergeron – Libertarianism Philosophy for Dummies


Libertarianthought.com, THE YEAR WAS 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren’t only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General. Some things about living still weren’t quite right, though. April for instance, still drove people crazy by not being springtime. And it was in that …

The Libertarian Thought Website View on Warfare

Libertarianism Philosophy Arguments – Why Libertarianism is the Only Solution to War?

While warfare is not the widespread problem it was during the last centuries, the World Wars have demonstrated just how deadly wartime use of technology has become. Libertarian Thought gained the capacity not only to generate power and make food for millions, but also to blow up millions.

The rich possibilities of terrorism have also brought a new dimension to warfare, by bringing it down to the common people. It has permitted a relatively small group like Al Quada to stalemate a war against the United States, with …

Ransberger – Contemporary Political Philosophy

Libertarianthought on The Ransberger Pivot

One of the problems of propagating libertarianism is that it is not well-known, let alone understood. People inherently will react to what they perceive as an attack against their doctrine.

As such, the thing libertarians are forced to do most is answering questions. The problem with being forced into that position in a dialogue is that simply answering questions after questions does not permit the libertarian apologist to discuss core issues.

The Ransberger Pivot, devised by Ray Ransberger and Marshall Fritz, is a simple technique that can be used to answer questions or attacks effectively …

Capitalism and Liberal View on Politics

Capitalism’s limit cases?

It is a fait établi that most people maintain that centralisation and the erosion of our freedoms is a good thing. Such thoughts are based on rhetoric and ignorance of basic political principles, and we are justified, as libertarians, to reject them. However, a sizable proportion of people do agree that government should be smaller. Economists are a group which usually agrees with this kind of statement, because they study the economy and know that freedom in general is most conductive to prosperity.

However, even if we agree that capitalism is a superior alternative, there is still …

Education – Libertarianism Philosophy Strengths and Weaknesses

Regulated Education Libertarianismo

As any scientist knows, the test of any theory is not only what data it can explain, but also what it cannot explain. Ultimately Libertarian, the only way to determine which theory is the best fit to reality is by attempting to disprove it, notably by making predictions that must arise if the theory is true, or by making specific experiments to show that some condition is not true.

This is why the study done by the OECD last November was very interesting data for me to examine, because at first glance it seems to be …
