Libertarianism is a political philosophy which encompasses all or most of the following:

To put it succinctly, the libertarian believes in the freedom of individuals to pursue their lives as they see fit, as long as they cause no harm to others, with minimal governmental interference. Those who support this philosophy are called libertarians.

Libertarian thought at its most basic level agrees with Jefferson’s statement, “That government is best which governs least.”"
