CLASSICAL LIBERALISM

Libertarianism & Power -- A fundamental tenet of classical liberalism is that concentrations of power are generally unwise. The most unwise and dangerous of which are concentrations of governmental power, and concentrations of outlaws, brigands, thugs, thieves, and the like--for the identical reason: because throughout history, the remedies for such concentrations usually involve killing people--or at least, the aggressive use of overwhelming force. Remedies for concentrations of power in other spheres of human activity generally require less drastic remedies.
