Political Freedom and its Roots in Metaphysics

Libertarianism -the political philosophy based on the concept of individual rights -seems to be an inherently clear, unambiguous position. Its fundamental principle, the principle that man's rights to his life, liberty and property are non-compromisable foundations for human co-existence in society, seems to offer sufficient basis for answering, or solving, all so called "social problems" - as libertarian literature amply demonstrates."' There is, however, one threat to this seeming clarity: the debate between limited government libertarians, headed by Rand, and anarcho-capitalists, mainly influenced by Rothbard.
