Op de Libertarische WereldConventie verstrekte een libertarier uit Nieuw Zeeland mij de principes van hun Libertarische Partij “Libertarianz”. Deze geven in kort bestek heel goed weer wat het Libertarisme is en waar het voor staat.
THE NEW ZEALAND PARTY OF PRINCIPLES.
Each individual is the owner of his own life and has the right to live it as he sees fit, as long as he respects that same right in others.
Each person has the right to create or lawfully acquire property – real, and intellectual – and to control its use.
All interaction among adult human beings, in all spheres of life, should be voluntary. Voluntary societies are civil societies, coercive societies are not.
Physical coercion must be removed from human affairs. The only acts that may properly be banned in a free society are those that involve the initiation of physical force or fraud by one party against another.
In a free society, laws protect people and property from the initiation of physical force or fraud, and uphold voluntary contractual agreements.
The only legitimate function of government is to uphold these principles.
The only economic system consistent with these principles is the free market.
To establish a consititutional republic of New Freeland, not by deceit but by openly and vigorously promoting a libertarian form of government.
