Libertarians support the concept that virtue, or a sense of moral good present in acts or character, is born from liberty.
Voltaire was a popular philosopher and writer of the French Enlightenment. His works advocated for toleration and rationalism and were widely read and accepted.
Voluntarism argues that individuals should not be coerced into “socially beneficial” projects, but should act voluntarily to assist others.
With many private contract enforcement options in existence, libertarians now question whether government is needed to guarantee contracts are upheld.
