Quotations

What it means to be a “libertarian” in a political sense is a contentious issue, especially among libertarians themselves. There is no single theory that can be safely identified as the libertarian theory, and probably no single principle or set of principles on which all libertarians can agree.
Matt Zwolinski, "Libertarianism (Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy)Libertarianism (Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy)"
The downside of this approach [foundational philosophical commitments] is that anyone who disagrees with one’s philosophic foundations will not be much persuaded by one’s conclusions drawn from them—and philosophers are not generally known for their widespread agreement on foundational issues.
