Libertarianism in a nutshell

The problem, is that I believe I have no moral right to force MY personal beliefs, preferences, or ideas on anyone else (no matter how "great" or "right" they may be).

I also believe that we have a moral obligation to use the force of government as little as possible (even if doing so may be "for the greater good").

Read the whole thing to see how both progressives and conservatives end up running afoul of the above.

The problem, of course, is that the poeple who are attracted to politics as a career are, almost invariably, people who want to spend their lives telling other people what to do.
