    Not to be confused with Lib.png Liberalism.


    Libertarianism, or more simply Right-Libertarianism or Libertarian Capitalism, is a civically libertarian, Lfree.png laissez-faire capitalist and culturally variable ideology. He inhabits the Libright-yellow.png libertarian right quadrant of the political compass, generally being in the middle of it unless specified.

    He believes in a very limited government and the individual's natural self evident rights of life, liberty, and property. He likes the use of militias to watch them.

    He technically believes in the same principles of Clib.png classical liberalism of equality before the law and the basic rights to life, liberty, and property, along with most librights, although some people debate most libertarians are only libertarians because of the precise ideology and not the principles of it.

    History

    Naming Controversy

    A narrative often held up by Libsoc.png Left-wing Libertarians is that the term "Libertarian" was originally a socialist term, which was later appropriated by the right. This conception is a half truth.

    There are two origins of the term.

    The term "Libertarian" was originally coined in the Monkeyzz-Enlightenment.png enlightenment Enlightnenment.png to describe supporters of free will (as opposed to determinism) and with it generally free action. With the first recorded usage of the term being in 1789 in reference to metaphysics. While the first political usage belongs to the Libsoc.png libertarian communist, Joseph Déjacque, who used the French word libertaire in a letter to Mutalist.png Pierre-Joseph Proudhon. Déjacque also started employing the term Awaj.png Anarchism at a similar time to Proudhon, but conceded it to him, calling Proudhon a "Synthesis Market Anarchism.png center right anarchist, Clib.png liberal and not Libsoc.png libertarian (...) you want free trade for cotton and the candle...", in favor of identifying as a "Libertarian" only.

    Déjacque, from 1858 to 1861, ran a paper titled “The Libertarian”, but it wasn’t very successful, and only lasted around 3 years. After that, from 1861 to 1884, the term was rarely used, before being revived by Anin.png Benjamin Tucker to refer to individualist anarchists, alongside of course the term “anarchism”. The term thus gained more popularity, during these times, in Cball-US.png the United States than in Europe.
    The term “libertarian communism” was also used at some French regional conferences in the 1880s but it was popularized by Benjamin Tucker before it was reclaimed by Ancom.png anarcho-communists.

    After this resurgence of the term Libertarian brought about by Tucker, the term once again started to be popularly used as an euphemism for Ancom.png anarcho-communism and other Libleft.png radical left-wing ideologies, half a century before it became widely used within right-wing circles.

    The term "Libertarianism" only acquired its present meaning at the split from Lib.png liberalism before the 30s. Put simply, what was originally Liberalism split into what we now know as Clib.png classical liberalism and Soclib.png social liberalism.
    The term Liberalism had been associated with the Demcr.png Democratic party ever since Grover Cleveland became president. However, during the campaign of Franklin D. Roosevelt the term started to be associated with the Soclib.png social liberalism. This, in turn, created two definitions of the term Lib.png liberalism, the American definition, by which Liberalism was associated to the modern Democratic Party, and the definition in many other parts of the world, where Liberalism kept its meaning being about the same thing as modern day Libertarian.png libertarianism.
    Later, with the radicalization of the classical liberal circles in the later 20th century, and taking inspiration from some already Synthesis Market Anarchism.png radical classical liberal thinkers of the 19th century, some of them prefered to stop being called classical liberals and adopted the term "Libertarian" completely. Classical liberalism thus started to be associated to Chilib.png Chicago economics and the free-market wing of Fiscon.png Neoclassical economics, while Libertarianism became closer to the Austrobert.png Austrian School of Economics.
    The western definition is also closely tied to Ancapf.png anarcho-capitalism as the radical wing that sought to split itself from more moderate Clib.png classical liberals was predominantly made up of Rothbardians.

    Proto-Libertarianism

    While Libertarian ideals could be considered to be rooted in history since antiquity (with examples being the 6th century B.C. Chinese Philosophers Lao-Tzu and Chuang-tzu), the modern incarnation of them can be traced to the radicalisation of Clib.png Classical Liberal principles that occurred through the later half of the 19th century and through the 20th.

    The most influential of these 19th century movements is generally considered to be French Liberal School, of Frederic Bastiat and Anmark2.png Gustave de Molinari fame. With the former being known for positing that law becomes unjust and corrupted when it punishes the right of self-defence of one individual in favour of other individuals' plunder and the latter for being originator of ideas that were essentially Voluntaryist.

    How to Draw

    Flag of Libertarianism

    Libertarianism's design is based on the Gadsden Flag.

    1. Draw a ball.
    2. Draw eyes on the ball.
    3. Fill the ball around the eyes with yellow.
    4. Draw a coiled timber rattlesnake.
    5. (Optional) Draw grass under the rattlesnake.

    For more detail add "DONT TREAD ON ME" or the simpler "NO STEP" under the rattlesnake.
