    What is a thin libertarian

    Thick and thin are two approaches to libertarianism, with "thin" libertarianism being understood as "a narrowly political doctrine" and "thick" libertarianism as integrated into some broader set of social or cultural values. Libertarian thickness, therefore, measures the degree or mode of association of libertarianism with other values.
    Charles W. Johnson, a left-libertarian, describes in detail philosopher Jan Narveson's comments to the 2005 Molinari Society symposium on this topic. The "thick" version of libertarianism is bundled with contexts in addition to the non-aggression principle. It promotes libertarianism with other values, and denies that libertarianism can be advocated by non-aggression alone. The "thin" version of libertarianism is solely approached to studying the non-aggression principle, without any cultural contexts bundled with it.

    Some of the "new members" are asking and answering their own questions and then voting each other up. :(
