Conservative Libertarianism

“Self-Ownership, Abortion, and the Rights of Children: Toward a More Conservative Libertarianism” Edward Feser. Journal of Libertarian Studies - (Summer 2004)

Summary: Libertarians frequently ground their arguments in self-ownership and natural rights. Critics claim that such a starting point leads to a libertine (not merely libertarian) ethos, making any political alliance between libertarians and conservatives philosophically inconsistent. However, Feser claims the opposite: self-ownership is not only not inconsistent with moral conservatism, it actually entails a kind of moral conservatism. Thus, he argues that libertarians who reject moral conservatism are actually violating their own fundamentals.
