The Libertarian 5 Commandments

By Alex Merced

To understand this post make sure to read this article about Elizabeth Warrens 11 Progressive Commandments.

While many libertarians like to keep it simple with basically one rule, the NAP (Non-Aggression Principle). I figured I’d take my stab at a good set of Libertarian commandments

 

# 1 – Individuals have the right to make choices regarding their property (body, fruit of labor, justly acquired property)

# 2 – Individuals don’t have the right to make choices regarding the property of others

# 3 – Individuals have the right to enter voluntary contracts of their liking with each other and have those contracts judged by a body of their mutual choosing

# 4 – Violence is only legitmatley used as a response to violence, The Initiation of Violence is NEVER just

# 5 – Markets are an efficient and more equitable way to distribute wealth than the alternative, and markets are an efficient conduit of knowledge. Individuals have a right to voluntarily form markets where they are demanded
