A Decent Political Philosophy

Clint Eastwood:

"I don\’t pay attention to either side," he claims. "I mean, I\’ve always been a libertarian. Leave everybody alone. Let everybody else do what they want. Just stay out of everybody else\’s hair. So I believe in that value of smaller government. Give politicians power and all of a sudden they\’ll misuse it on ya."

Not sure that\’s specifically libertarian, classical liberalism would fit in there too.

  1. It is indeed a decent philosophy.

    A minor point: I’m certain that Mr Eastwood speaks American. I understand, in that foreign language, usage of political liberalism is pretty much the opposite of that decent philosophy over here referred to as classical liberalism. I also understand that this is one of the many meanings of libertarianism: an important but confusing and perhaps overused term. Still, I’m one too: whatever it’s called.

    Best regards
