"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!"

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[5] (which he self-describes as), or a Neoconservative[6] (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.

Variants

Goldwaterianism

"insistence on competition as indispensable to a free market had scared the huge corporations. These giants of free enterprise had become addicted over the years to collusion with the government and to the sheltering protection of government regulations which hampered market entry and produced excessive restrictions against innovative products. Too many of them were used to government's helping hand in what amounted to welfare programs disguised as redundant and unquestioned defense appropriations. Goldwater was suspicious of all that. He did not feel that a corporation should be subsidized with funds coerced from working people — any more than he believed that an artist or a scholar or a farmer should be. The support of big business flowed naturally to Lyndon Johnson, who knew how to wheel and deal with corporations that felt they had the right to be treated as virtually a fourth branch of government."

Barry Goldwater

Barry Goldwater was a member of the GOP from Arizona and served as a senator for the state. He ran for president in 1964 and was a pioneer of the conservative movement. When he ran for president, the campaign of Lyndon B. Johnson attacked him as a complete warmonger.Ironically, Lyndon Johnson would later be accused by Americans of committing war crimes in Vietnam.

He was conservative and hawkish figure within the Republican Party,Although from today's perspective, his philosophy is closer to libertarianism. advocating for small government and opposing Roosevelt's New Deal that proving himself a libertarian. Despite being considered a representative of American conservatism, he supported racial integration, environmental protection, LGBT military service, same-sex couples' adoption rights, and marijuana legalization. These positions led to significant conflicts with the Christian conservative wing of the Republican Party in his later years. In contrast to the dovish and pacifist tendencies of libertarians, he was a staunch hawk and anti-communist, supporting Taiwan and often expressing a willingness to launch nuclear attacks on the Kremlin. When Jimmy Carter announced the normalization of relations with the People's Republic of China, Goldwater took Carter to the Supreme Court.

In addition, the famous Karl Hess was his political advisor. The two have long had a close relationship. However, another friend of Karl Hess, Murray Rothbard, referred to Goldwater as a "representative figure of the new right" when explaining why he identified with the Old Right. Rothbard criticized libertarian support for NATO as contradictory.

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.

Stylistic Notes

Neo-libertarians are often made fun of by other libertarians because of their support of foreign wars and their willingness to pay tax to the state. Subsequently, they are sometimes called "Bootlickers."
