Libertarianism

In total libertarianism, It Is explained that the role of the government should be to rite laws that protect individual property rights such as: no force, no theft , no fraud, and no breach of contract. For example, we mentioned In class the example of someone picking apples off of an apple tree, and being able to keep those apples without having to give It to any one or get It taken away because they used there own fair labor to gain those apples.

The strength of total Libertarianism Is that It guarantees to protect any individuals property rights of any human being within the system, but at the same time its an approach that interferes with a free-market rounding.. If this person with the apples has a field of apple trees and can’t possibly eat them all he must sell them at whatever price he would like. If everyone that sells apples, or himself if he is the only one selling apples, attaches a hefty price for them, the poor would have a very difficult time affording those apples. If only the rich can afford them, the poor in a libertarian society would not survive.

Another form of libertarianism is a more moderate libertarianism in which the government writes rules that protect full and free competition and guide it from any monopolies, oligopolies and vertical integration. For example, eBay is the closest thing we have to a free-market and moderate libertarianism, because in a sense eBay is somewhere that any seller can compete freely with other sellers and not worry about any interference. A cellophane case can be sold at 8 dollars from one seller and the same exact case can be sold by another seller for 12-13 dollars but yet the consumer has the freedom to choose based on what they like and see.

The strength of this approach is that it doesn’t interfere with a free market and lets everyone have n opportunity, but at the same time Its major weakness is that it doesn’t fully guarantee someone individual property rights. Any competitor could unfairly gain their Items and sell them at a lower price than most because he would still gain profit from It. I believe that with today’s status quo, a libertarianism approach can work but I believe It would have to be a combination of both total and moderate styles of It. I believe that bringing both strengths together of each approach can help to create one that would be ;deal for society.

Being able to retain Individual property rights, as ell as having a full and free competitive market to operate In would be Ideal because it would let everyone have an opportunity but also be protected at the same time. By Scotty 115 was gained fairly, that property cannot be taken away by anyone; including In total libertarianism, it is explained that the role of the government should be to fraud, and no breach of contract. For example, we mentioned in class the example of without having to give it to any one or get it taken away because they used there own fair labor to gain those apples.
