What is the litmus test to being a Libertarian?
What makes someone a Libertarian besides them just saying so? Is there any single policy or position that is innately required to be a “proper” Libertarian? The point being so important, adamant, that an individual’s position on it reflects throughout their political philosophy?
Personally I think the litmus test should be whether someone thinks (mandatory) taxes constitutes theft.
I also think it’s important for Left and Right Libertarian to at least agree on one position which qualifies both as Libertarian. It’s easy to say you value liberty, freedom, equality, and rights without actually defining or presenting how that is displayed through policy.
Of course there’s the “I want gay couples to defend their marijuana plants with AR-15s”. But that’s not a uniquely Libertarian position to support legalization of marijuana, gun rights and gay rights.
