"Since we are all individuals with unique personal desires to make us happy we need as much freedom as possible. However if we choose to live with others, there must be limits, namely we cannot impinge upon others' equal right to freedom of choice, which means we need: a government that, as inexpensively as possible, respects our life, liberty, desires and property and doesn't allow force or fraud by other individuals or groups, even majorities or itself [Libertarianism] and; an economy that is incentivised to provide as much affordable, mutually beneficial choice as possible [Austrian economics/pure capitalism]." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

"[In order to develop a better understanding of the political and economic choices available to advance society it is helpful to keep up-to-date with the latest thinking on the issues. Many websites and magazines can help. For the perspective of people dedicated to individual liberty, one such site is Reason.org.] Founded in 1968, Reason [The Reason Foundation - reason.org] advances a free society by developing, applying, and promoting libertarian principles, including individual liberty, free markets, and the rule of law. Reason produces respected public policy research on a variety of issues and publishes the critically acclaimed monthly magazine, Reason. Together, our top-tier think tank and political and cultural magazine reach a diverse, influential audience, advancing the values of individual freedom and choice, limited government, and market-friendly policies. Reason Foundation's nonpartisan public policy research promotes choice, competition, and a dynamic market economy as the foundation for human dignity and progress. Reason produces rigorous, peer reviewed research and directly engages the policy process, seeking strategies that emphasize cooperation, flexibility, local knowledge, and results. Through practical and innovative approaches to complex problems, Reason seeks to change the way people think about issues, and promote policies that allow and encourage individuals and voluntary institutions to flourish. Reason is the monthly print magazine of 'free minds and free markets' [www.reason.com]. It covers politics, culture, and ideas through a provocative mix of news, analysis, commentary, and reviews. Reason provides a refreshing alternative to right-wing and left-wing opinion magazines by making a principled case for liberty and individual choice in all areas of human activity." - Reason Foundation

"American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research: Organization and Purposes: 'Competition of ideas is fundamental to a free society' The American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research is a private, nonpartisan, not-for-profit institution dedicated to research and education on issues of government, politics, economics, and social welfare. Founded in 1943, AEI is home to some of America's most accomplished public policy experts--from economics, law, political science, defense and foreign policy studies, ethics, theology, medicine, and other fields.

Its website, www.aei.org, posts its publications, videos and transcripts of its conferences, biographies of its scholars and fellows, and schedules of upcoming events. AEI's purposes are to defend the principles and improve the institutions of American freedom and democratic capitalism--limited government, private enterprise, individual liberty and responsibility, vigilant and effective defense and foreign policies, political accountability, and open debate. Its work is addressed to government officials and legislators, teachers and students, business executives, professionals, journalists, and all citizens interested in a serious understanding of government policy, the economy, and important social and political developments. [Its website is recommended to help any individual, from any country, keep abreast of current thought about policies that promote the libertarian concerns of free market capitalism and limited government.]" - American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research

[Quote No.30670] Need Area: Friends > General
"[It is important in the political process for voters to think carefully about what is important to them and, for equality's sake, to extend this to all citizens. Most people value their ability to choose freely and yet they feel they cannot allow this for others even when this would not impinge on their own freedom to choose or hurt the economy. Libertarians recognise the importance of freedom both politically and economically. What's more they offer policies that support these ideals whereas, despite the rhetoric, other political parties, even those who espouse their concern for the poor and oppressed and call themselves liberal do not. For example, here is a brief article that introduces some issues that could be made more liberal and help the poor and the economy.] What Should Liberals Liberalize?: Do 'liberals' generally favor liberalization? Do they favor greater freedom to choose? Liberalization is the loosening of restrictions on individual liberty. Or do 'liberals' generally oppose liberalization? The Democrats have done well at all levels nationwide [in the U.S.]. Are the Democrats liberals? Do they favor liberalization? If the Democrats are liberals and care about the poor, here are some things they should move to liberalize — --School choice. Giving parents the purchasing power to choose schools for their children improves education. Sweden has vouchers and it works well. Evidence increasingly shows that choice works and top-down government control doesn't. --Immigration. Let more in, including the low-skilled. Most Mexicans who come are much poorer than poor Americans, and they send part of their earnings to family members abroad. Their experience in the United States imparts liberal norms and they spread those norms abroad. Why should concern for the poor end at the border? --International trade. When two people engage in voluntary exchange, they both expect to gain, even when they live in different countries. When Americans trade with Brazilians or Indians, there are mutual gains. The trading partner abroad is often poorer than the American. As Paul Krugman and many before him have explained, free trade allows firms anywhere in the world to take advantage of scale economies, producing more for humanity while consuming fewer resources. Everyone wins. Economists overwhelmingly support freer trade. --Agricultural subsidies and protectionism. Prices of certain agricultural products are propped up by an array of governmental restrictions and cartel measures. Everyone pays the price at the grocery store, and the impact is regressive. Most economists support liberalization and the reduction of farm subsidies. --Drug prohibition. Most of the hundreds of thousands caged in prison cells on drug violations are poor. The illegal drug trade especially ravages poor neighborhoods. Those who suffer from impure, ill-labeled black-market drugs are poor. Most of those injured in black-market violence are poor. Most economists who publish judgments on the issue favor liberalization. --Occupational licensing. Licensing requirements restrict the supply and variety of services and raise prices. They also prevent poorer people from entering trades. Economists who write on the subject say that voluntary certifications, reputation, and other assurances work well, and they favor liberalization. Morris Kleiner of the University of Minnesota and Alan Krueger of Princeton University find that occupational licensing affects upwards of 25 percent of the workforce. Both have published judgments favoring liberalization. --The minimum wage. Unskilled workers have to compete against higher-skilled workers, machines, and anything else employers might do with their money. The minimum wage law strips unskilled workers of their primary means of competing: Lowering their price. Even when the minimum wage does not put them out of work, it affects the non-wage job attributes. It stands to reason that unskilled workers who get jobs at the minimum wage tend to face higher work demands, less flexibility, less on-the-job training, less non-wage benefits, and less recognition and consideration. In a depressed economy it is important that labor markets remain fluid and flexible. --The Food and Drug Administration control of pharmaceuticals. All drugs and devices are banned until individually permitted by the FDA. The costs, delays, and uncertainties suppress the development of drugs that would have saved lives. Economists who publish judgments on the matter resoundingly support liberalization. --Urban transit. State and local laws prevent market forms of transit — shuttles, jitneys, mini-buses, share-ride taxis, and smart carpools. Free-market forces have been largely forsaken to protect and serve governmentally run or planned systems that ill-serve the goals of mobility and efficiency. Economists who write on rail transit largely agree that most rail transit projects are ill conceived. --Rent control. Roughly 200 localities still have rent control. Economists who publish on the matter largely agree that it reduces the supply and the quality of rental-housing and generates conflicts. It increases prices of housing outside the rent-controlled sector. Very likely in the long-run it increases rents even in the controlled sector. Do we think the Democrats will move to liberalize any of these? What will they liberalize? Why again do we call them 'liberals'? " - Daniel B. Klein

[Quote No.30678] Need Area: Friends > General
"If you are a person whose ethics dictate that the world should be fair and equitable, you will find that it is impossible to reconcile those ethics with most political parties within a country, which are set up to champion the needs of a particular group, regardless of merit, and as such are really a form of non-physical force, or simply civil war carried out by other means. That is not to say that there are no political parties which you could support. Libertarian parties are not set up to fight for the needs of a particular group in society. They are set up to fight for the principle that each and every individual in a society has inalienable rights to life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness, regardless of income, occupation, ability, sex, age, race, creed or religion. This focus on individual rights, freedom, empathy and charity for those less fortunate develops a society that is a compassionate meritocracy, where there is equitable reward and dignity for all, rather than a society where might, of force or numbers, is right." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

"The story of [government] deficits and surpluses is that you go into deficit like going down in a lift and you get out of it by climbing up the stairs. [The reason for this is that government spending, including unemployment benefits increases, in accordance with the Keynesian economic theory that most governments follow, to raise aggregate spending to compensate for the slowdown in consumer and business spending in a recession, just as employment and business income and therefore tax revenue falls. This increase in spending, before the price is paid, is initially well received by the public but as it is then usually followed by years of tough budgets so the political party in government's friendship with voters becomes strained often resulting in a change of government.]" - John Howard

"...every time we [anti-statists, including for example, libertarians] object to a thing being done by government, the socialists [statists] conclude that we object to its being done at all. We disapprove of state education. Then the socialists say that we are opposed to any education. We object to a state religion. Then the socialists say that we want no religion at all. We object to a state-enforced equality. Then they say that we are against equality. And so on, and so on. It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain." - Frederic Bastiat

[Quote No.30877] Need Area: Friends > General
"The state - or, to make matters more concrete, the government - consists of a gang of men [and women] exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they can't get, and to promise to give it to them. Nine times out of ten that promise is worth nothing. The tenth time it is made good by looting 'A' to satisfy 'B'. In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and every election is a sort of advanced auction on stolen goods. [Therefore a government's ability to bribe any segment of the community, needs to be removed, as promoted by libertarianism, by removing government's powers beyond those required for enforcing freedom and property rights, leaving the rest up to each individual to choose from a competitive free market or philanthropy.]" - H.L. Mencken

"Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper." - Larry Flynt

[Quote No.30879] Need Area: Friends > General
"The most basic principle to being... free... is the notion that we as individuals are responsible for our own lives and decisions. We do not have the right to rob our neighbors to make up for our mistakes, neither does our neighbor have any right to tell us how to live, so long as we aren’t infringing on their rights. Freedom to make bad decisions is inherent in the freedom to make good ones. If we are only free to make good decisions, we are not really free. Socialist ideologies blur this line between self reliance and government control because the mistakes of the individual are spread to everyone else. Thus the government becomes very interested in your decisions and way of life, with the justification that you could make a mistake others will have to pay for. The end result is, of course, that everyone loses privacy and control over their own lives. Whether they realize it or not, they are no longer truly free." - Ron Paul
U.S. Congressman. Quote from his speech, 'Personal Freedom and the Internet', June 30, 2008.

"If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values, we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities, and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric, one in which each diverse gift will find a fitting place. [Where honest, peaceful individualism will flourish and each individual will have the freedom to discover and express their innermost self (interest, talent and desire) - so long as it does not impinge upon the equal rights of any other individual to life, liberty, property or pursuit of happiness.]" - Margaret Mead
(1901 - 1978), American Anthropologist

[Quote No.30898] Need Area: Friends > General
"Are Libertarians liberal or conservative? Libertarians are neither. Unlike liberals or conservatives, Libertarians advocate a high degree of both personal and economic liberty [Liberals usually are only pro personal but not economic liberty, while Conservatives are the other way around]. For example, Libertarians [like Conservatives] advocate freedom in economic matters, so we're in favor of lowering taxes, slashing bureaucratic regulation of business, and charitable - rather than government - welfare. But Libertarians are also socially tolerant [like Liberals]. We won't demand laws or restrictions on other people who we may not agree with because of personal actions or lifestyles. Think of us as a group of people with a 'live and let live' mentality and a balanced checkbook." - Libertarian Party
The Libertarian Party is America's third largest political party, founded in 1971 as an alternative to the two main political parties, the Democrats and the Republicans. Downloaded from their website [www.lp.org] 6th January, 2009.

[Quote No.30899] Need Area: Friends > General
"...trading taxpayer money for personal or political gain is the common coin of politicians... [i.e] swapping appointments and favors [corruption] is merely stock in trade for politicians of the upper echelon. That leads to a virtually inescapable conclusion: The best way to limit such tawdry quid pro quo ['you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours'] is to limit the power of politicians and of government [as espoused by libertarians]. Stories of ambitious men being corrupted by the political game have been plentiful since my youth. It amazes me, here amid many calls for the government to take an ever more active role in our country’s doings, that so many of these cautionary tales seem to be forgotten... FBI investigations and anti-bribery laws will never take the corruption out of politics. [As Lord Acton said, 'Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely'. Therefore] The best way to limit it is to keep government small [with responsibilities related primarily to enforcing freedom and property rights], with few jobs to fill and limited money to spend [transparently and accountably]." - David Boaz
libertarian, executive vice president of the Cato Institute and author of 'The Politics of Freedom: Taking on the Left, the Right, and Threats to Our Liberties'.
