Welcome to the The Moral Libertarian Horizon Wiki

This Wiki is for the discussion and promotion of both liberal thinking in general, and Moral Libertarian ideas in particular. There will be content about the great tradition of liberalism stretching back several centuries, as well as contemporary debates from the Moral Libertarian viewpoint.

How does liberalism's dedication to distributing liberty equally make it a moral ideology? To answer this question, we need to first look at what liberty is. Liberty is the power an individual has over their own actions, their ability to put their ideas into action. Therefore, looking at it from a moral perspective, liberty is moral agency, i.e. the ability to act in accordance with one's moral compass. An equitable distribution of liberty therefore ensures an equitable distribution of moral agency. In this way, liberalism ensures that every individual in society has an equal share of moral agency.
