Ship of Fools discusses libertarianism
As I understand it, anyway, a major element of the libertarian philosophy is the Golden Rule. You don't want the neighbors' sewage runoff on your property, obviously -- but you have an obligation to make certain that yours isn't ruining anyone else's life, either. You have a right to do what you want within reason, but without impinging on anyone else's rights.

...more acceptance of personal responsibility as a basic aspect of being a grown-up would, I think, benefit the country as a whole.
