Are There Two Libertarianisms?

Libertarian Moralists and Libertarian Consequentialists Are Not So Different

JUNE 01, 2001 by JAMES PERON

Libertarian, or classical-liberal, thinking is routinely divided into two supposedly different camps. In a controversial article some years ago, R. W. Bradford (using the pen name "Ethan O. Waters") called these "The Two Libertarianisms": "moralism" and "consequentialism." Moralism is the belief that individual rights are justified through an appeal to natural law and natural rights. Consequentialism justifies liberalism by arguing that it will "optimize" the wealth and happiness of society.

Another Alcoa Executive at Treasury

Will Paul O'Neill Be Another Andrew Mellon?

JUNE 01, 2001 by LAWRENCE W. REED

When President-elect George W. Bush chose Paul H. O'Neill, chairman of the world's largest aluminum manufacturer, to be his secretary of the treasury, Bush said, "it's important for me to find somebody who has vast experience, who has a steady hand, and when he speaks, speaks with authority and conviction and knowledge." If O'Neill turns out to be half as good as the other Alcoa executive who once occupied the same cabinet post, he'll do the country great service.

CURRENT ISSUE

April 2014

Around the world, people are struggling to throw off authoritarianism, with deeply mixed results. From Egypt to Venezuela, determined people build networks to overthrow their regimes, but as yet we have not learned to live without Leviathan. In this issue, Michael Malice and Gary Dudney discuss their glimpses inside totalitarian regimes, while Sarah Skwire and Michael Nolan look at how totalitarian regimes grind down the individual--and how individuals fight back. Plus, Jeffrey Tucker identifies a strain in libertarianism that, left unchecked, could reduce even our vibrant movement to something that is analogous to the grim aesthetic of architectural brutalism. The struggle for our lives and freedom is a struggle for beauty; it begins inside each of us.
