"I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice!
And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue!"

Neo-Libertarianism (also spelled Neolibertarianism) is an economically right-wing, moderate libertarian, and culturally variable, albeit usually right-leaning ideology, who is the child of Libertarianism and Neoconservatism. His beliefs stem from the concept that negative rights are largely incompatible with a strictly limited government, and thus, he is generally supportive of government involvement in society as long as it "promotes greater liberty". The most generally distinguished of these policies Neobert believes "promote greater liberty" are foreign military interventions, which puts him at odds with the majority of the people within his quadrant while being very friendly to Neoconservatism.

On this wiki, he is used to representing the ideology of conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, over large disagreement on whether he's a Libertarian Conservative[7] (which he self-describes as), or a Neoconservative[8] (for his strong support of American foreign interventionism).

History

The first neo-libertarians used the term in response to the Iraq War. Distancing themselves from the generally anti-war response of the mainstream libertarian movement, neo-libertarians proudly set out their reasons for supporting the War on Terror and an effort to secure the freedom of the Iraqi people.

While most libertarians tend to adopt isolationist positions on issues and matters of war, neoberts range anywhere from ambivalent to strongly pro-interventionist: The Iraq War, and to a lesser extent, the U.S. Invasion of Afghanistan represent ongoing disputes between these factions.

Another key difference is in regards to domestic policy, where neoberts are strong advocates of incrementalism, i.e. making many small changes over time. By contrast, mainstream libertarians tend to advocate for drastic, almost-immediate policy changes.

Despite getting along better with Neoconservatism, they have arguments with them as well. Where neoconservatives strongly support the building of capitalist states after defeating/overthrowing non-capitalists by force, neo-libertarians are more concerned with letting Capitalism operate after any military victory. If capitalism is allowed to operate, they argue, the former subjects of militarily defeated governments will naturally arrange governments (whatever the form) that are, if only out of political expediency, more friendly to their subjects' newfound economic freedoms, and therefore, much less likely to jeopardize the benefits, which neoberts believe capitalism offers.

Goldwaterianism

"The conservative movement is founded on the simple tenet that people have the right to live life as they please as long as they don't hurt anyone else in the process."

Barry Goldwater was the Republican senator of Arizona from 1953-1965 and 1969-1987. At the time he was considered to be on the "fringe right-wing" of the party for his opposition to the legacy of the New Deal and support of laissez-faire economics, At the same time, he often said that he would drop nuclear weapons in the Kremlin. as this had alienated the more moderate and liberal wings of his party. Despite being a member of the NAACP and a supporter of desegregation, Goldwater had reluctantly voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964 because he believed it partially violated the rights of businesses. He was selected as the GOP's presidential candidate in 1964, where he lost by a landslide against the Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson, after being successfully portrayed as a far-right extremist by LBJ's campaign. Although losing, his campaign is credited for pushing the GOP to the right and helping inspire the rise of Ronald Reagan. Despite his staunchly conservative views, he advocated for desegregation in the US military. Goldwater's views on social and cultural issues grew increasingly more libertarian over time nearing the end of his career (he believed that they were an integral part of true conservatism) as by the mid-1980s , he had spoken out in support of gays being able to serve in the military, environmental protection, abortion rights and the legalization of medical marijuana.

Shapiroism

Phoenix Foundation

Phoenix Foundation is a libertarian foundation, that has several attempts (sometimes ever violent) to create independent to create Libertarian states in Bahamas and Pacific Ocean. In 1972 the Foundation began to construct a platform in the South Pacific. Part of a reef, normally a metre below sea level at high tide, was piled high with sand and a small stone platform was erected carrying the flag of the Republic of Minerva—a golden torch on a blue background. Claims of Tonga was recogonized by South Pacific Forum in September 1972. A Tongan expedition was sent to enforce the claim, arriving on 18 June 1972. The Flag of Tonga was raised on 19 June 1972 on North Minerva and on South Minerva on 21 June 1972.

Relationships

Freedom Spreaders

  • Monetarism and Chicago School - 2nd place.

Temporary Allies

  • Libertarian Conservatism - We... kind of "get along". Barry Goldwater was extremely based and Ron Paul is a piece of garbage.
  • Bleeding-Heart Libertarianism - Quit it with this pacifist. At least your better when compared to this guy, you fully admit that Putin is a jerk.
    • I oppose interventionism because it will do nothing for the progressive or libertarian causes abroad. Also, many NATO allies such as Saudi Arabia, and even NATO members like Hungary, don't have good LGBTQ rights.
    • Through military cooperation we can exert influence over our allies.
  • Minarchism - I like how you want to use the state to secure freedom, but why don't you want to secure greater freedom?
  • Anarcho-Capitalism and Agorism - WTF?! If there is no state, then who will maintain the military?!
    • - Private defence companies, obviously!
    • - Would you like to buy a McNuke or two, sir?
  • Hoppeanism - I kinda like your cultural views, but why are you anti-interventionist? There are commie dictators abroad, you know?
    • I oppose foreign intervention because it promotes oppression in other countries.
    • Foreign regimes in other countries are oppressive towards their citizens. Don't you want to bring liberty to them?
    • It's not our obligation. Start promoting libertarian values in America first.

  • Feiglinism - Fellow libertarian Zionist, but what do you mean you hate NATO?

  2. "It makes no sense to call our camp democratic. We do not only have democrats there, who prioritize the will of the people and the right of the majority, as well as the Constitution and procedure. Gleb Yakunin is a democrat. And Viktor Mironov? And myself? And the Cossacks? Are they democrats too? Our camp is the camp of the Whites. But now the White camp is almost cured of traditionalism and is deliberately rushing to the West, as to an unattainable Christmas tree star... That's why we are called democrats, although I, for example, am a liberal and do not agree to put world issues to a universal vote" © Valeriya Novodvorskaya
