Libertarians’ Fundamental Commitments

“In their new and excellent history of libertarianism, The Individualists (Princeton University Press, 2023), Matt Zwolinksi and John Tomasi claim libertarians have six basic commitments. Zwolinski and Tomasi do not, at least in the first third of the book (I’m still reading), say whether they believe there is an order of importance to the six. I am inclined to think that Zwolinski and Tomasi are correct about the six commitments, but I also think that some are more fundamental than others. In this post, I will suggest one ordering.” (09/12/23)
