|2.||Ayn Rand effect|
What happens when a person first rejects altruist, collectivist, and mystical morality for a rationally self-interested one. It generally lasts a short time, but can have long term negative consequences for the self-interested individual. Until the individual sorts out his new values and long term goals, they walk around insulting altruists and people that value/love them; being worried that they have been taken advantage of by those they previously valued.
Ayn Rand effect:
Son: I've been reading Ayn Rand, and her book has lead me to question all my relationships. She says that collectivism is a sin and thus just because I belong to a race, family, nation or other group, it doesn't mean that it's in my self-interest to believe as they do. I need to have my own objective reasoning.
Father: So your rejecting your religion, family and everything I ever taught you because of a book?
Son: Well, I just don't think it's a justification for a morality anymore.
Father: I'm writing you out of my will. How's that for being rationally self-interested?
A person who very strongly believes in principle of 'no INITIATION of force is allowed', with government being included in the most frequent initiators of force, i.e. abusers.
Libertarians typically view government as a source of fraud, economic waste, political insanity, cronyism and legally created monopolies, as opposed to the body delivering important social services (see statists). Many libertarians believe that government per se, as such, costs people more than its non-existence.
Libertarians divide mainly into minarchists (proponents of minimum government) and anarchists (proponents of no government).
Minarchists want government to be protector 'against force and fraud'. Anarchists want reliance on other social mechanisms, such as local community, common law, and free market for defence against such.
There is an important difference between classical liberals and liberatarians: libertarians advocate free market for reasons related to individual rights, while classical liberals advocate free market for social utility.
Notable examples of anarchist libertarians are David D. Friedman, professor of law, and Vernon Vinge, mathematician and scifi writer.
Libertarians believe government is monopoly of force serving the monopolists and politically connected VIPs, not the people.
There's no such thing as society, there are only individuals.
Self-interest trumps ideology.
Liberals are liars and conservatives are cowards.

New Zealand has no written constitution. The most important statutory rights are found in the unentrenched New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990. These so-called rights have been overridden many times by various NZ Parliaments. As such, some have referred to NZ an a 'elective dictatorship'or "thin" democracy. It certainly lacks the rights of Canada. Canada having the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. New Zealand is a great nation 'if' you are rich, if not, watch out
