: Most right-wing Libertarians claim that they subscribe to "natural law".....

Most left wing whatevers claim to subscribe to 'natural law' only their version talks of society, groups and not individualism. If you were to speak of one as a parody then the other is as suspect. reality is the arbiter and what is real is what causes the ideological argument nearly as much as what people *on both 'sides'* perceive as their self interest.

The starting point in questioning our current society would be to ask "why would people 'require' guidance and the force of laws from others?" not "why should people claim the right to their individual life and the means to live it as such"

I replied to your other post.
