What we're about

This is a group to gather all the expat libertarians out there, whether classical liberals or anarchist libertarians. Of course, everyone curious is welcome, regardless of nationality or political background.

The fundamental premise of all libertarianism are unalienable and universal individual rights, regardless of race, religion, culture, majority opinion or whatever. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness really and originally mean self-ownership, individual property, and freedom of contract. From this perspective, "that government is best which governs least" (source (https://www.bartleby.com/73/753.html)).

However, isn't that government which governs least no government at all? Anarchist libertarians do indeed advocate a stateless society. Provided that a critical number of people agree on the basic legal principles of self-ownership, individual property, and freedom of contract, law and security can be produced more efficiently by voluntary cooperation than by central planning.

This may sound utopian even to many libertarians, but it certainly is a principled and inspiring stance. Which may eventually be decisive, as Friedrich Hayek said: "We must make the building of a free society once more an intellectual adventure, a deed of courage, a task which challenges the ingenuity and imagination of our liveliest minds" (source (https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Studies_in_Philosophy,_Politics_and_Economics)).

You can learn more about the ethical/legal case for a free society in the videos George Ought to Help (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGMQZEIXBMs) and The State vs. the Highwayman (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ewtA3qcm3fo). The utilitarian/economic case is made in the videos The Machinery of Freedom (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTYkdEU_B4o) and Law without Government (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8kPyrq6SEL0).
