Notes
  • Purpose – Aims to question whether political principles, for example, those of socialism or libertarianism, have lasting significance. Design/​methodology/​approach – Lays out a case for the stability of at least one variety of political principle, namely that of libertarianism or classical liberalism and argues that the normative version of these positions does manage to have lasting stability and significance. Findings – There is much that is true that people do not necessarily attend to – including certain principles of political life. It may well be true that everybody has the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, yet many of us reject this fact. Even judges and Supreme Court justices often fail to rule in a manner consistent with these principles. Originality/​value – Provides insights concerning the nature of political and ethical principles.
