Description

50 What is libertarianism?

Libertarians want a win-win world of peace and plenty. And we believe
that the only way to get it is through self-government... NOT others-
government.

Self-government is the combination of personal responsibility and
tolerance. Responsibility means you govern yourself. Tolerance means
you don't force your values on peaceful, honest people.

Today, however, others-government is giving us insecurity, conflict
and poverty. Let's revitalize our heritage of self-government to
create a win-win world where everyone comes out ahead. [4] -- Carole
Ann Rand
