Milton Friedman on Libertarianism
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cl_qwo2VIlU

I particularly liked the part about "two Libertarianisms" at 2:33:

1) "Extreme [deontological] Libertarianism", based on the "it's immoral to initiate force and everything else flows logically therefrom" concept. I find that completely ridiculous, and apparently Dr. Friedman isn't too impressed with it either.

2) "Consequentialist Libertarianism", advocating the minimum government possible which allows each individual maximum freedom, short of allowing them to interfere with other individuals' freedom. Dr. Friedman claims that's his style of Libertarianism.
