Claire Khaw's aphorisms on libertarianism


  1. "There should only be as many laws that are consistent with a society that is both law-abiding and jealous of its liberties."
  2. "The only thing contentious man can agree upon is that we cannot agree on anything. By striving for minimum government, we strive for greater liberty, which may be something we could just agree is logical. Those who do not find this desirable are the ones who prefer safety to liberty, and consequently deserve neither."
  3. "All thoughtcrime is inherently illiberal, but there is now much thoughtcrime legislation being enacted in the name of liberalism."
