Don't be a "freedomarian"

in libertarian •  3 years ago 

There's a reason it's "libertarian" and not "freedomarian".

Yes, freedom sounds great- doing whatever you want, with no limits. Until the guy next to you is doing the same. Then it's not so wonderful. In fact, it's often unsurvivable.

Freedomarians would not be good neighbors.

On the other hand, liberty is self-limiting. You can never have "too much" because as soon as your "freedom" violates someone else, you don't have the liberty to do it.

Libertarians recognize this fact. Thus, libertarian, not freedomarian.
