Statism is an ideology that supports the use of the government in order to attain specific ends beyond the defense of rights to property and person. This includes, but is not limited to, the use of the state to sponsor welfare programs, wars of aggression, and implementation of price controls and tariffs. This employment of state power is not in the defense of its citizen and their properties and therefore occurs in opposition to individual liberty.
