When we first leave high school and begin University, we are suddenly free. We’re free to stay up all night discussing politics, choose when to go to class and study, even attend a bar right on campus. Our new freedom comes with new responsibilities: bills to pay, flatmates to get on with, jobs to go to and assignments to do. Freedom and responsibility are two sides of the same coin.
Libertarianism is a political philosophy which puts the liberty of the individual first. Each person should be free to act as they please, so long as they do not initiate physical force or fraud against the person or property of others. We believe taxation is theft, free markets are the best economic system and taking drugs is a choice, not a crime.
Libz on Campus is a club on campus standing for true freedom.
Tired of the socialist-conservative dichotomy? Think government should get off our backs and out of our lives? Hate red tape, taxes and wastage?
Join the Wellington branch of Libz on Campus. We’re not left or right. We’re better.
The Wellington branch of Libz on Campus meets every Monday at 7 pm in Eastside, the Victoria University student bar. For more information email Phil Howison at [email protected], or call him on (04) 475 3055.
