Comment: Minarchism, utilitarianism

In reply to comment: So what you are saying is (see in situ)

Minarchism, utilitarianism

Minarchism, utilitarianism and theism are contradictory to freedom, that's what I'm saying.

Minarchism is a form of statism. Governments violate freedoms.

Utilitarianism is concerned with consequences, and leads to thinking that unavoidably violates freedom.

Theism not only undermines autonomy (mental freedom and the foundation of all moral choice) but supposes a celestial dictator, who, if he existed, would be the very antithesis of freedom.

I truly believe that the only kind of social movement for freedom that has a chance of success, is one that recognises these contradictions and confronts them.
