Libertarian Party of Canada - What is Libertarianism? (1006 words)
Libertarians do not look at government as a sacrosanct body that cannot be questioned, but simply as the agency which has a monopoly on the legal use of force.
Libertarians believe the reason this has happened is not because ideals always conflict with practical reality, but because the ideal of socialism (as enforced by the state) is an ugly one, not suited to Free men.
Marilee Haylock (1942-1982) was Chairman of the Ontario Libertarian Party from 1976 to 1979.
