Ayn Rand[edit]

Ayn Rand was a critic of libertarianism. While she was a tremendous influence on them, she rejected the label. She also influenced conservatives, but was no conservative. Oolyons (talk) 16:02, 25 January 2012 (UTC)

Subdivisions needed[edit]

  1. Instead of a single list of names, how about dividing into 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th century names?
  2. Instead of a single list of concepts (along with a schools section), can we parse out the "isms" and more general concepts?
  3. Technically I don't know how to do this. Anybody knowledgeable/willing?

Thanks. --S. Rich (talk) 03:40, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

Stephan Kinsella?[edit]

Stephan Kinsella seems a bit obscure to include in a list of Libertarians. I would think that some level of importance is needed to be included. I am removing him on that basis per wp:BRD Bonewah (talk) 19:16, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

Split Into Two Categories?[edit]

Putting 'anarcho-capitalism' and 'libertarian socialism' together, or 'Noam Chomsky' and 'Murray Rothbard' together, feels like apples and oranges to me. Just because they're both 'libertarian' in some sense of the word, it doesn't mean they fit in the same category at all. I believe that Libertarianism and Right-Libertarianism should be separated into two categories. --Irockz (talk) 09:40, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

Removal of custom colors[edit]

I've removed the use of custom colors from this template, as I have also done with the navboxes for other ideologies such as Nazism, Neo-Nazism, Anarchism, Liberalism, Communism, and Green politics, because they are purely decorative and serve no encyclopedic purpose. -- The Anome (talk) 10:46, 31 August 2019 (UTC)
