Ron Paul Responds to Libertarianism as ‘the Natural Enemy of Science’

The enemies of liberty are on the defensive. Their concern that we are indeed moving toward liberty and away from authoritarianism is motivating the defenders of big government to wildly strike out against the principle of non-aggression.

The critics of liberty are either unapologetic enthusiasts for government management of our lives and the economy, or they have no comprehension of what a society would be like if violence were rejected as a tool for improving mankind.

The Guardian, in its recent article bashing liberty, claims that libertarian ideology is the natural enemy of science. It claims that libertarians are on a permanent collision course with their position on climate change, health care, and gun control. That’s like arguing that libertarian ideology is the natural enemy of religious belief because it provides freedom of choice for believers and atheists.
