pretty good article. i

pretty good article. i actually hold the position that, taken to its logical conclusion, you can't be a libertarian without being a theist. you have to believe in God or at least one deity in order to establish that individual sovereignty is objectively morally good. if you take God out, youre left with relativism, in which case you have no grounds on which to argue against the government intruding on liberty outside of legal ones (i.e. you cant refer to the objective and binding reality that individuals have rights as a result of their humanity from God)

for those fellow libertarians who arent theist, i appreciate your recognition on how the world is structured and, we'll say, "designed," that is, with natural rights at the forefront. i would simply challenge you to try and answer the question of "what makes individual sovereignty objectively morally good?"
