Libertarianism vs Christian Nonviolence

The difference between a Jesus-imitating voluntarist or nonviolence (non-aggression and non-vengeance) message and standard libertarian rhetoric is that the former focuses on our moral treatment of the neighbor whereas the latter focuses on an individual orientation. The former is about what is the appropriate way to treat my neighbor, even when in a voting or jurist crowd. The latter is a notice to your neighbor on your demands for self-ownership.

The former, I believe, is the winning message that will resonate with disparate communities long unresponsive to the standard libertarian presentation. – David Gornoski
