"“By properly deploying both incentives and nudges, we can improve our ability to improve people’s lives, and help solve many of society’s major problems. And we can do so while still insisting on everyone’s freedom to choose.”"

Liberaltarianism is a political ideology that combines principles both from Modern Liberalism and Libertarianism. It's a mostly utilitarian ideology that believes in relatively small government, non-atomistic individualism, a live and let live philosophy, the ease of doing business and free markets, but accompanied with the more paternalistic approach of Modern Liberalism, arguing that full on laissez-faire economics aren't the way to go, and aim for a more moderate view.

This more paternalistic approach in regard to markets is also applied to government welfare programs. Contrary to most libertarians, they wouldn't advocate for the abolition of all welfare programs, nor, as many modern liberals, would they advocate for large-scale socialization of services such as healthcare. Instead, they try to advocate for a more moderate approach in these topics, such as a school voucher system or a compulsory private health insurance system.

In most issues, they'll usually advocate for an in-between of the liberal and the libertarian proposal, without exactly siding with either or fitting into either group. It is also a more right leaning version of Social Libertarianism and is more close to Yangism in some regards.

According to the survey, 22% of American Democrats consider themselves libertarians, which is much higher than the 12% of Republicans.



Left-Liberaltarianism is the more moderate form of left-libertarianism. It's pretty much a libertarian-leaning version of the views shared by either the mainstream centre-left or more moderate liberal socialists, wishing to incorporate their basic principles within a fairly small state.


Right-Liberaltarianism is the more moderate form of right-libertarianism. It acts as the middle ground between the highly laissez-faire philosophy of right-libertarianism and more moderate forms of market liberalism , sharing some or most of the rhetoric associated with right-libertarians while not viewing state welfare and regulations as an inherent negative.


Lööfism is based on the policies of Swedish MP Annie Lööf and the Center Party, in which she was a leader. The ideas are based on economic and Social Liberalism, along with the free competition of small farmers and entrepreneurs with the defense of Neoliberalism. One of the main focuses would be environmental protection and the promotion of biodiversity through cooperation with foresters and private landowners. Other focuses would also be governmental decentralization, Liberal Feminism, the promotion of individual freedoms with the equality of the sexes, immersion in international peace, promotion of the European Union, investment in infrastructure, defense of Right-Libertarianism, rigorous actions against climate change and organized crime, green industries, free trade between European countries, anti-populist blockade, national economy, generous immigration policy with contributions to refugees and opposition to Social Democracy. It is sometimes called Center Liberaltarianism due to its economically centrist policies.

  • Social Liberalism - You've got some really nice ideas, although your ideal state is a little too big, and most people would confuse me with you.
  • Nordic Model - Similar to the guy above. You're overall pretty ok, but I'm not really the biggest fan of corporatist economics.
  • Social Democracy - Slow down with all that spending thing buddy.
  • Third Way - Please ease off all that military spending man! Besides that you're pretty cool.
  • National Liberalism - Surprisingly not bad, for a nationalist.
  • National Libertarianism - Way too culturally right-wing, but apparently is tied with me in Slovakia. Also, tell that thing to piss off and we're good.
  • Libertarian Conservatism - I don't like the Republicans that much, but at least you have some good civic views.
  • Neo-Libertarianism - Some of us support foreign military interventions while others don't.
