Edmund Burke condemned the French Revolution as a “digest of anarchy.” What relevance does his critique have for the modern libertarian movement?

In America, Big Brother watches because he cares. And caring—at all costs—is the very stuff of modern liberalism.

We're told we carp about gov't but never offer solutions - that's because limiting government often is the solution. http://www.libertarianism.org/columns/first-do-no-harm

It's unfair to candle makers that the sun gives it's light away for free! Witty satire about trade protectionism: http://www.libertarianism.org/publications/essays/candle-makers-petition

The question, and we pose it formally, is whether what you desire for France is the benefit of consumption free of charge or the alleged advantages of onerous production. Make your choice, but be logical; for as long as you ban, as you do, foreign coal, iron, wheat, and textiles, in proportion as their price approaches zero, how inconsistent it would be to admit the light of the sun, whose price is zero all day long!Frédéric Bastiat

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically. Carried out, it finally amounts to this, which also I believe- "That government is best which governs not at all"; and when men are prepared for it, that will be the kind of government which they will have.

Freedom matters!
Introduction
Liberty. It’s a simple idea, but it’s also the linchpin of a complex system of values and practices: justice, prosperity, responsibility, toleration, cooperation, and peace. Many people believe that liberty is the core political value of modern civilization itself, the one that gives substance and form to all the other values of social life. They’re called libertarians.
