THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RAND AND LIBERTARIANS

Libertarians:
Non-aggression taught to individuals, who practice it independently, leading to the establishment of self-government (anarcho-capitalism, minarchy, republicanism, federalism).

Ayn Rand (Koch, Beck, Friedman, Hayek) Libertarians:
Non-aggression as a guiding principle embedded into the constitutional framework and philosophy [how?] of government. Said government goes on, from its superior philosophical high-ground, to enforce its will upon the populace. Because the government is intellectually pure and follows non-aggression, its only enemies are intellectual savages who deserve no sanction under non-aggression and may be dealt with with utmost force of arms.
