The way that Libertarianism has played out in American culture is one that is accepting of all lifestyles as good and wholesome. The Libertarianism that I subscribed to is one that allows all lifestyles to be legal but not necessarily good or wholesome. An example is the gay marriage issue. I don't see a "Gay Marriage" as a legit marriage because of Biblical doctrines on marriage. I would allow a gay couple to be together, but I would try to convince them to follow Jesus and break apart their relationship because God has a much better model regarding sexual relationships, one man and one woman for life. It is the Church's job to convince people to follow Jesus, (through the working of the Holy Spirit). Government's sole job is to protect the individual rights of Self-Ownership, Property and Contract rights. The government can't regulate a particular lifestyle(s). If the government was only to protect the rights of the individual, this means that over 90% of what the government is doing would need to be deleted because it interferes with the three fundamental rights of the individual. As it stands, the government needs to severely back off and become minuscule. The problem with this system is the implementation of such a basic system when compared to the current American political/governmental system. The founders had the right idea about protecting the rights of the individual and setting up a system to protect those rights. This is why they have the first amendment and the second amendment (free speech and gun rights). But this is still primitive when compared today's libertarian oriented philosophies, the US Constitution as much as being an excellent document in the 18th century and protecting one's rights, it is time to start thinking better systems of governments and this might be possible. In regards to the Sea Steading Institute, they are making plans to create the first "official" floating city that will be self-governed by 2020 (if everything runs smoothly). This new wave of self-governed cities outside of any nation's government system will make it possible to have a governing body that protects the rights of the individual. If the government of the United States, in general, were better at protecting one's individual rights, then I would not have a problem, but by being purely libertarian/voluntaryist, I'm still on the fence of being a small government type of libertarian or an anarcho-capitalist. If I have to take either today's statist system or no government, I would be more than happy to take the no government, but the reality is that everyone is dependent on government to some degree or another in the United States. It is what it is, that is why I'm going to keep on doing what I'm doing regarding this website.
This week I'm been taking it easy, because I'm on Spring Break. I work at a school and they are on spring break so that means I'm on Spring Break. That being said, I had to do more time at my other job, so I slammed over 30 hours in three days. I rather slam a bunch of hours at once at a job that I don't care about any more and not have to deal with it. I will be back in the full swing of things on 4/3/2017.
