LibertarianismDotOrg: Bill Evers: How to Convince a Socialist to Become a Libertarian
How to convince a Socialist to be Libertarian, first of all good luck, Socialists believe in what the State. Can do for the people with their money and Libertarians believe in what people can do for themselves with their own money and Libertarians also believe in Maximize Freedom across the board. That individuals have the right to live their own lives as they see fit, as long as they are not hurting innocent people with what they are doing, they should be free as long as they aren't. Hurting innocent peoples freedom, Socialists do believe in the State as far as improving peoples lives and making society as equal as possible but Socialists are pretty diverse on Social Issues. And depending on what type of Socialists you are talking about, people who I would call Leftist Statists, people who not only believe that the State has the responsibility to make sure that. All people are living as quality of a life as possible economically but that the State also has the responsibility to make sure that people are living as safe as possible, even if that means protecting. People from themselves and there are Socialist Liberals who are Socialist on Economic Policy but more Liberal-Libertarian on Social Issues, that government shouldn't try to protect people. From themselves, because they can't and its Undemocratic and Statist.
