Myth and Truth About Libertarianism
By Murray N. Rothbard


*Libertarians believe that each individual is an isolated, hermetically sealed atom, acting in a vacuum without influencing each other.

*Libertarians are libertines: they are hedonists who hanker after “alternative lifestyles.”

*Libertarians do not believe in moral principles; they limit themselves to cost-benefit analysis on the assumption that man is always rational.

*Libertarianism is atheistic and materialist, and neglects the spiritual side of life.

*Libertarians are utopians who believe that all people are good, and that therefore state control is not necessary.

*Libertarians believe that every person knows his own interests best.
