It’s not the government’s role to provide society with all its needs and services such as higher education, healthcare, childcare so on and so forth.

The role of the government is to protect individual liberties and the pursuit of happiness. The government exists to protect your right to PURSUE but not the right to happiness. You must acquire happiness on your own and the necessities required to sustain your happiness and life.

Freedom through the principles of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is about the pursuit of prosperity and happiness through individualism, free markets, free trade, free enterprise and personal ownership – all free from government as much as possible.

Personal liberty is about allowing people to do whatever they want as long as it does not infringe on others rights. When one believes in liberty they do not believe in any absolute social outcome, they believe in allowing society to manifest on naturally and work out social issues without government mandated legislation geared towards stoking a desired particular social outcome.

We have the right to pursue happiness but happiness is not a right.

Liberty in the marketplace is not to believe in any particular economic outcome. It is to trust in the spontaneous natural order that results when the state does not intervene in human volition and human cooperation, it permits the markets to work out their problems for themselves, build an economy for themselves, take risks and accept responsibility for the results.
