Individualism, Sovereignty and Nationalism are incredibly important for Independence, Liberty, Freedom, Security and Prosperity…
By valuing individualism over collectivism and sovereignty/nationalism over globalism, that in essence empowers the individual and the nation to meet their full potential. Therefore, benefiting the overall collective and the entire world by tenfold. Individual and national rights are the means of subordinating society and the entire world to moral law.
The foundation of Individualism and nationalism lies in an individual’s and nation’s moral right to pursue their own happiness. This pursuit requires a huge amount of independence, initiative, and self-responsibility. True individualism and nationalism involves cooperating with others through trade that morally benefits everyone, which facilitates the pursuit of each party’s happiness, and which is carried out not just on the level of goods, but also on the level of knowledge, and kinship. Trade is essential for life. It provides an individual and a nation with many of the goods and values they need. Creating an environment where trade flourishes is of great importance and great interest for the individualist and the nation.
Politically speaking, true individualism and nationalism means recognizing and understanding that an individual and his/her country have a right to their own life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. But it also means uniting with other citizens to preserve and defend the nation’s that protect that right. This is how you create sustainable wealth, prosperity, peace for humanity, and build great long-lasting civilizations.
Personal liberty is about allowing people to do whatever they want as long as it does not infringe on others rights. When one believes in liberty they do not believe in any absolute social outcome. They believe in allowing society to manifest on their own and naturally work out their own social issues without government mandated legislation geared towards manifesting a desired particular social outcome. We have the right to pursue happiness but happiness is not a right. The government has the authority to legislate laws geared towards preserving life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but they do not have the authority to legislate morality.
Liberty in the marketplace is not to believe in any particular economic outcome. It is to trust in the spontaneous natural order that results when the state does not intervene in human volition and human cooperation. It permits the markets to work out their own problems for themselves, build an economy for themselves, take risks and accept responsibility for the results, and make their own choices free from government involvement as much as humanly possible.
