Socialist libertarians

The familiar right-wing libertarians stand for individual liberty over collective liberties. Socialist libertarians stand for collective liberties at the expense of individual liberty. In case you haven’t noticed, individual and collective liberties often conflict. So the left/right part of the libertarian spectrum depends upon which you think are more important. For instance, if you would ultimately favor the individual liberty to not pay tax over the collective liberty to get healthcare, you’re a step to the right.
