Which political stereotype is she?
Pragmatist - You believe that individuals are the rightful owners of their own lives and therefore have inherent freedoms and responsibilities. You maintain that the proper purpose of government is to protect such freedoms and not to assume such responsibilities. However, if you think that you will lose votes by saying so, you will let your principles be sidelined in favour of populism. Your role model is Suzanne Wright.
Over at The Whig, new contributor Suzanne Wright has a bone to pick with libertarians.
First she implies that libertarian ideas are wrong because they're delusional.
Being a libertarian is not a political position, it's a psychological condition.Then she implies that libertarian ideas are wrong because they're not popular.
Taxes, regulations, pretty much the whole real world is categorically wrong and we should all just see the light and agree with them. Problem is nobody agrees with them...And here's the crux.
If the libertarians really do have the truth and the light then a democratic process will tend towards their utopia because coercion is not necessary to achieve the ideal human condition.ACT members would do well to pay more heed to their founding principles. They were penned by Libertarianz founder Ian Fraser shortly before he left ACT in disgust.
All around the world lower taxes, lower trade barriers, and the collapse of central planning among other examples are suggesting that we are tending towards a libertarian utopia one way or another.
