The spirit of America and true patriotism as well, is found in the libertarian ideologies of broad tolerance of those we may not agree with. I do not personally believe Islam is a peaceful religion but many others are not peaceful either, I would of course never interfere with the rights of those I disagree with as I respect their right to free speech, their right of religion, as well as their property rights. To regulate people we do not agree with is to attempt to control their minds, if one advocates this it can be strongly argued that this individual has absolutely no understanding of freedom, liberty, property rights or natural rights in any sense, whatsoever.
To be free is to let others be free, regardless of how you feel about them or how they choose to live their lives. If one isn’t allowed to do the wrong thing, then how can doing the right thing truly be their truest intention? To force people to do the ‘right’ thing is immoral and wrong in and of itself. Live and let live. Voltaire, libertarian philosopher and friend of Ben Franklin said it best:
“I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.” – Voltaire
