The Philosophy of Liberty

A simple, but absolutely essential lesson.


The principle of self-ownership.

To take life is murder.
To take liberty is slavery.
To take property is theft.

You do not have the right to initiate force against the life, liberty, or property of others.

You have the right to protect your life, liberty, and justly acquired property.

You have the right to seek leaders for yourself, but you do noy have the right to impose rulers on others.

You choose your own goals based on your own values.

Virtue is only derived through free choice.

The people of the earth must stop asking governments to initiate force on their behalf.
