Pictures of matchstick men and you

(via Crooked Timber)

Continuing with the line of CT links lately, I noticed that Chris Bertram posted a rather neat flash animation on "The Philosophy of Liberty," which explains the (very) basics of general libertarian theory, at least as far as the ideas of self-ownership and the non-initiation of force.

I'm a bit confused by the commenters; how exactly is the presentation or message Marxist? And I suppose that the ending is a bit "utopian", but it doesn't seem very controversial to say, as a matter of logic, that if it were possible to have everyone around the world simply reject the initiation of force against people, then indeed a peaceful world would happen. Getting from here to there is the tricky part...
