Liberty Party Principles
These Principles are reproduced from the Constitution of the Liberty Party. See also Objectives of the Liberty Party.
The members of the Liberty Party hold:
that all people are created equal and different and with free will;
that all people are created with the obligation to refrain from interfering with other people—their life, their liberty, the fruit of their labour, their contribution to society;
that this obligation rebounds to an individual as the reciprocal right—to be free from interference, to the extent that the right is consistent with the obligation;
that all people are created with the obligation to respect the land and to hold in trust for future generations any land they do hold;
that a person may at any time revoke an authority they have delegated, and is incapable of delegating an authority they do not themselves possess;
that the people of a territory are sovereign and they create a government for the purpose of enforcing their inherent obligations and defending their reciprocal rights, and they grant that government the authority to effect that purpose, and they may revoke that authority were that government to fail in its purpose;
that a government so created is subject to no external government, instrument, institution, organisation or other corporate body or individual;
that these inherent obligations and reciprocal rights are had whether or not they are enunciated in a national Constitution.
From the fundamental principles above follow these principles:
Freedoms are inherent in the people, not gifts of the state to the people.
Powers are granted to the state by the people, not inherent in the state.
The role of a strong and honourable military is to defend citizens from threats originating outside the national territory.
The role of an honourable judiciary and police is to defend citizens from threats originating within the national territory.
The role of an honourable legislature is to support the military, judiciary and police in their roles, and further to put always the interests of Australians first using common sense and frugality.
The first role of a nation is to protect its citizens while they are abroad.
The second role of a nation is to engage fruitfully, co-operatively, respectfully and peacefully with other nations, to the extent that the other nations reciprocate.
Citizens engage truthfully with one another, whether as organisations or individuals, whether as public or private persons, and they live not by lies.
