Freqently Asked Questions

Q: What is a libertarian?

As the name suggests, a libertarian is a person who places a high value on personal liberty. It naturally follows, then, that most libertarians embrace the Non-Aggression Principle as a core component of their philosophy. The NAP is after all predominantly about freedom, with the single restriction that you may not initiate force against another person nor their property.

Restrictions against murder, rape, theft and other offensive actions follow naturally from adherence to the NAP. Additionally, most libertarians are insistent that governments, like individuals, should not be exempt from these restrictions, no matter what the stated ends. Contrary to what V.I. Lenin said, the ends to not justify the means.

Libertarians recognize that liberty is not the only nor even the highest value to aspire to but that it is a necessary ingredient to be fully human. Without it we cannot be moral, because morality requires the freedom to choose.

Libertarians are not necessarily members of the Libertarian Party. Many members of that organization seem little interested in making the Non-Aggression Principle a core value of their party.

Nor are libertarians necessarily libertines. Most libertarians understand that actions have consequences and that reckless behaviors often have negative outcomes.


Q: Does the adherence to the Non-Aggression Principle require rugged individualism?

Not at all. People are free and encouraged to make connections and build communities. Many if not most of any culture's greatest achievements are the result of collaboration. The only requirement is that these communities not be built on a foundation of force, coercion or violence.
