Irish Liberty Forum

The Case for Apolitical Activism

leave a comment »

I found a very insightful article on Brainpolice arguing for libertarians to avoid politics altogether. It expresses some of the ideas I have been exploring, but also introduces several that I had not considered, while articulating and organising all of them extremely well.

I understand that most readers of this blog are not libertarians, or even very close to this point of view, and while this article is not primarily an argument for freedom, I think it serves as an excellent example of the freedom philosophy at work in a particular applied case: applied to politics. If you understand the libertarian justifications of apolitical activism, then I think it can be said you have a real grasp of what this is all about.
