Libertarianism is the philosophy of reason

Libertarianism is the political philosophy of reason. All other political philosophies endorse violence rather than reason. If we cannot spread the philosophy through reason, then we ought not to spread it at all.

In my opinion, libertarianism has everything to do with parenting. Raising a child amounts to teaching him or her to be rational -- about their bodies, about their lives, about their interactions with other people ... No amount of force is going to teach the child to be rational. At best, it might give the parent a small modicum of rest/peace/satisfaction.

But sure, I'd love to take in your arguments. Libertarianism is the philosophy of reason, after all. So please do send me a copy of the e-book :-)
