In these days, the United States armed forces are still in Afghanistan, supposedly to "promote democracy" and to expand "freedom in all the world" (George W. Bush's second inaugural address). On many occasions, U.S. Presidents and others have implied that democracy is the only form of government under which human liberty can be attained.
But is democracy the best form of government conducive to the largest number of individuals enjoying freedom? In these pages we are cataloging various forms of libertarianism such as minarchism and anarcho-capitalism which may be more effective and moral in achieving that goal. We also contrast them with other ideologies such as socialism and communism which in our opinion are detrimental to individual liberty.
As stated in the United States Declaration of Independence, "mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms [of government] to which they are accustomed." Here you will also find past and current attempts at resisting tyranny, both armed and non-violent, or to change existing governments.
