I don't believe in something like an ideal or perfect ideology, however, as far as I can tell, libertarianism (and also classical liberalism) ticks many boxes for me.
✅ The war on drugs is stupid
✅ Criminalising sex work is stupid
✅ "Intellectual property" is an oxymoron
✅ People should take responsibility for their own actions
✅ Free exchange of goods and services between people is better than coercion
✅ People should be free to choose whatever form of money they wish to use
As an outsider living in Germany, I'm quite surprised at how much the Germans still believe in the utility and benevolence of the state.
You'd think that they'd be more wary of the dangers that the state poses, given the history of the 3rd Reich and the GDR.
Instead, the thinking seems to be that we just need to "fix" the state, then everything will be fine.
In South Africa (where I'm from), Apartheid was also a state-based institution.
In a libertarian society, Apartheid on a grand scale would not be possible.
Individuals and groups would be able to discriminate against others, but they would not have the monopoly on violence that the state possesses to force the entire society to disenfranchise and oppress other groups.
Businesses would be free to serve whoever they want (which was not the case during Apartheid) and out of self-interest and/or competitive pressure they would most likely serve everyone instead of discriminating based on race (or whatever else).
If there were ones who chose to discriminate on race, others would fill the gap in the market left by their discrimination.
Some insurers could then decide to lower their premiums by not paying for Covid treatment for their unvaccinated clients, while others would recognise that there is money to be made by attracting those customers who don't want to vaccinate and still want to be covered for Covid treatment.
People would have the freedom to choose, and if your premiums are slightly higher because you don't want to vaccinate yourself, well that's the market in action. At least you know you'll get treatment.
