Brilliant little film. Sums up so succinctly my political and philosophical outlook on life.

You cannot claim to be a liberal, when you only believe in moral liberty and not economic liberty.

You cannot say that you suuport democratic and liberal principles, when you only give people economic liberty, but no moral liberty.

We libertarians need to claim back the word liberal. Because liberal does not mean a person that is morally liberal, but believes in socialism. That is a falsehood, and a corruption of the true meaning of the word 'LIBERAL'.
