Gradually I came to realise that characterisation is problematic for three reasons:
I now think that the ratio personal freedom vs economic freedom better categorises Left vs. Right (cf #NolanChart). I like to think of those two dimensions as “#freedom to do what you please with your body” (food, drugs, euthanasia, suicide, sex, read, speech, thought, association, religion) and “freedom to do what you please with your property” (save, invest, buy, sell, donate, build, trade, settle).
Even if all monopolies are cancelled, as long as there is a State, there is central authority exerting some coercion, limiting some freedoms. What I meant to say is that I’m fine with that. ie, I think I agree with you in that even a libertarian society ought to have some restrictions.
@tripu @icedquinn When it comes to libertarians, I’d imagine the restrictions are on the central government’s powers towards the citizens, right? They probably like some sort of government with restictions as long as it’s local and its policies are relevant to the locals. Anyway,I’d mention I’m not very familiar with it.
