I am a Neo-Libertarian and for the full differences between my belief system and those of the Libertarian Party, go to the sidebar and in the blogroll, click on the link “The New Libertarian” and start reading. If you make asinine comments on this thread about what libertarians do or do not believe before you actually know what they or I believe, you will be treated as a troll and your comment will only be posted in order to mock your ignorance. Honest questions and comments will be treated with respect.

This series is being posted to form a basis of discussion for those that have never known what the basis of libertarian thought is and need an introduction before committing themselves to reading Free to Choose by Friedman or Libertarianism One Lesson by Bergland.

So, let’s begin.

What are the elements of the libertarian movement and how does one of its most illustrious proponents, Milton Friedman, apply its tenets to issues facing the United States today? Milton Friedman, Senior Research Fellow, Hoover Inst., Nobel Laureate in Economic Sciences discusses how he balances the libertarians’ desire for a small, less intrusive government with environmental, public safety, food and drug administration, and other issues.

This is part 1 of 4. Others shall follow.
