If you follow any libertarian outlet on the Internet, you’ll notice that there are numerous strands of libertarianism. I will not detail all of them, but they all share something in common: a very limited or nonexistent government and absolute rights to person and property. I would probably most closely identify as a minarchist. As a result of the multitudes of libertarian beliefs, I have decided to begin structuring my own libertarian perspective.
Throughout the history of government malpractice and failure, there have been very few policies containing both of these inevitable pitfalls of state control. Excluding war and economic cronyism (both of which are also “protectionist”), drug prohibition has been the U.S. government’s most expensive and horrendous failure. Prohibition was created out of intent to “rid the world of drugs”.
