Hello, I know libertarians have diverse opinions on many issues. I want to better understand the conclusions individuals come to on the following questions. If it was covered on a previous thread, I’m sorry. Please link me and I’ll educate myself. Thank you.
Is taxation still coercion if the threat of violence is removed? For example, directly taking the money out of your account.
If taxation is theft by taking from one party via coercion and giving it to another, is stolen intergenerational wealth similar? What are the implications for something like the US, property previously gained by The New Deal and/or reparations.
For the Austrians, do you still believe that classical economic theory can represent, explain and/or predict human behavior? Does that affect the justifications for privatization and market efficiency.
Do most libertarians use Locke’s justification for property rights? If so, how is that affected by the labor theory of value falling out of favor?
Is public health spending (vaccines, sidewalks, sick leave) libertarian?
If conflicting, are the property rights of international corporations more important than the right to self determination by a smaller nation?
Are green libertarians and open border libertarians fringe libertarian schools of thought?
