(I extracted this from RAW's Natural Law, which I just finished reading -- The Mgt.)
If libertarianism means anything, it should certainly mean progress, not stasis; change, not medieval dogma; a liberation of energies, not a new cage.
Of course, there is an opinion broad in the land that libertarianism does mean a mindless, heartless and mechanical system of medieval dogma.
I don’t know how this impression came about, although it probably
has something to do with Randroids and other robot Ideologists who
occasionally infest libertarian groups. Frankly, I have always loathed
being associated with such types and devoutly wish libertarianism could
be sharply distinguished from Idolatry and fetishism of all sorts. If liberty
does not mean that we can all be more free, not less free, then I need to
ﬁnd a better word than “liberty” to describe my aspirations ...
I am not interested in Ideologies
and don’t give a damn about labels at all, at all. I am interested only in
what makes the world a little more reasonable, a little less violent and
somewhat more free and tolerant than it has been in the past.
