Liberty On Tour was founded to advance the voluntary society. We believe that everything can be provided through voluntary, or consensual interactions. It’s a simple concept that has some very real and very positive implications – a freer, more peaceful and more prosperous society.
You’re an individual. You have inherent rights regardless of your skin color, your gender, your place of birth, or any other arbitrary characteristic. You have the freedom to act so long as you don’t aggress upon another person or their property. If you do, you alone are culpable. After all, if you’re not free to make a mistake, are you really free?
No masters no slaves.
This is complete liberty – individual freedom coupled with personal responsibility. You cannot “earn” or be “granted” extra rights due to arbitrary authority. Words on paper, an order from your boss, or justifications of “just doing your job” don’t exonerate your actions.
If I steal from you I’m in the wrong whether I donate it to a charity or work for the Internal Revenue Service. If I break into your house you rightfully have a claim against me whether I’m a common burglar or have a piece of metal pinned to my chest.
Yet do you judge these actions differently? Would you be any more or less victimized in those scenarios due to my occupation? No. That’s why they shouldn’t be treated any different.
The stakes are high. To be inactive is to condone. To be an armchair philosopher is good – at least you’re thinking for yourself – but it’s not enough.
That’s why we take this message on Tour (fulltiming in an RV and hitchhiking), because we realize the impact of in-person communication. We hold meetups, do outreach and man-on-the-street interviews. We connect and with activists and network them with others, growing real, supportive communities. We go to events, conferences and do media. And, through our websites and social networks, we share the content we collect during our travels with others through the interwebs.
At the end of the day, we’re just people who believe choice is better than control and we work to share that idea with others. Let us know if you have any questions or feedback.
