“I became a conservative by being around liberals and I became a libertarian by being around conservatives. You realized that there’s something distinctly in common between the two groups, the left and the right; the worst part of each of them is the moralizing. On the left, you have people who want to dictate your behavior under the guise of tolerance. Unless you disagree with them. Then the tolerance goes out the window. Which kind of negates the whole idea of tolerance. That’s the politically correct tolerance. Then when you become a conservative, the other kind of moralizing comes from religion. ”
From Greg Gutfield “What You’re Left With Is Libertarianism” in the October 2009 Reason
HKO comments- so is Libertarianism a political movement without morals or one without ‘moralizing’? Is there a difference?
