“The origin of morality is the self: how people ought to act because they, themselves are human beings. The origin of political philosophy is others: the requirement to treat others justly because other people are human beings.”
Libertarianism is summed up as follows "you live your life and exercise your own freedom with respect for the freedom and rights of others. You behave as a libertarian.” Libertarianism is respect for people's ability to do what they would like to do. The notion of certain beliefs, thoughts, and actions as immoral and should be regulated by the government is not a libertarian thought. Libertarianism is not the lack of conviction, but a belief that each person should be able to act on a conviction. The right of the individual is the only real right. Political parties or large groups shouldn't be able to get their views in government and pressed on all of the individuals of society. The reminder should always be in the hand that liberty is at the core of Libertarianism, and is foundational to what makes America great as long as it does not violate the body or property of another. No regard is necessary for those who feel ‘offended'.
Normally the organization that is most able to violate the sanctity of personal conviction, is the government because the government has no higher governing power over itself. The government is the one business with no oversight other than its own inner checks and balances of the three branches: legislative, executive, and judicial. The problem with this is that it is susceptible to manipulation. Either the branch is too big, leading to bureaucratic stagnation; or the branch is too small, which creates a variable of instability.
