Nearly everyone understands the basic principles of conservatism or liberalism, but surprisingly few people are familiar with the neglected, red-headed stepchild of political philosophies: libertarianism.

Well, no more! The Babylon Bee is here to educate you with the following list of libertarianism's pros and cons:

Pro: Freedom!

Con: Freedom from deodorant.

Pro: You don't need a license to drive a car.

Con: The pilot doesn't need a license to fly the plane you're on.

Pro: People can do whatever they want to do.

Con: Nobody wants to build roads.

Pro: No more lame fiat currency with pictures of war criminals on it.

Con: Gold and silver are really heavy to carry around.

Pro: People in your party are like-minded and enjoy personal freedoms.

Con: Most of them are a bunch of dirty hippies.

Pro: You don't live with the government's boot on your throat.

Con: You live with free market corporations' boot on your throat.

Pro: You can own a fully equipped A-10 Warthog.

Con: Absolutely nothing, brother.

Pro: No more oppressive zoning regulations.

Con: Your neighbor just built a slaughterhouse in his backyard.

Pro: No involvement in foreign wars.

Con: China just invaded Newport Beach.

Pro: Gold standard means no inflation!

Con: You'll never be able to taste a $10 hot dog.

Pro: You can buy an AR-15 to defend your marijuana plants.

Use this handy list to determine if libertarianism is the way to go. Or don't. You just decide whatever is right for you, man.
