The "neo-Locke" variant is one kind of libertarianism, espoused most famously by Robert Nozick and perhaps more intelligently by Richard Epstein. But there are others: Jan Narveson has a sort of utilitarian lib; Loren Lomasky a neo-Kantian one; Hayek's is a different sort altogether, being based on non-utilitarian consequentialist arguments on the one hand and a sort of Noetzschean-Weberian constructivism about ethics on the other. But in America, lib and a neo-Lockean natural rights view tend to go together. --jks _________________________________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free E-mail from MSN Hotmail at
