Socialists claim to be "more progressive" than conservatives. This may be true, but libertarians are far more progressive than both sides. Libertarians value both economic and social freedoms, while the right only bothers with the former and the left with the latter. Libertarianism promotes the virtures of self-sufficency, individual liberty, a peaceful and mature foreign policy, and equal individual and economic freedom for all. Here are seven detailed reasons why libertarians are the true progressives:
7. Socialists believe that government is the answer to everything. It is the all-knowing, all-powerful, authoratarian ruler of all. By contrast, libertarians believe that individuals have the right and responsibility to govern themselves.
6. The left is famous to dividing people into "minority" groups. This creates segragation. Libertarians contend that all should have equal rights -- their sexual orientation, race, gender, eye color, hair color, or favorite flavor of ice cream are secondary to the fact that they are individuals.
