Is it imperative to have a moral society for libertarianism to work? Or will liberty make society function better? Libertarianism, rooted in the Nonaggression Principle (NAP), advocates for a moral society built on respect, and non-coercion, echoing the elementary morality of respecting others’ rights and properties. However, the foundation of government often contradicts these principles, as seen in systems like social security, which involves a forced redistribution of wealth. As private institutions diminish in influence, the government’s expansive role fosters a society where politics and power overshadow morality, leading to divisive and coercive practices. Given this dynamic, the expectation for society to organically evolve into a “more moral” state under the current political system is implausible. Liberty, as championed by libertarianism, underscores the necessity of upholding moral principles to facilitate a society that is not only functional but also just and equitable.
