A Brief Tutorial to Libertarianism

A fellow blogger and far better writer, Silverfiddle at Western Hero has written an awesome layman's outline of Libertarianism.
Libertarianism: A Beginner's Guide
Libertarians and conservatives are two different animals.  If you need an in-depth explanation, just try calling a libertarian a conservative on steroids or some such, and you will be treated to a full, vociferous explanation.
Conservatives want to conserve; libertarians, as the name implies, put personal liberty first.  From there, libertarianism branches out into a multitude of variants.

  1. Thank you for the boost!

    May I also humbly recommend my permanent page on libertarianism?

    As I stated, I am stuck between conservatism and libertarianism, and I realize that puts me in an often-incoherent place, since the two are not completely reconcilable.

    I enjoy you blog as well. You've often challenged my beliefs and forced me to rethink them.
