About the Scottish Libertarian Party:

The Scottish Libertarian Party is a new party in Scotland founded in 2014 on the Non-aggression principle – the idea that any person may do whatsoever they wish, so long as they do not initiate the use of force against another.

We stand for Free Speech, Free Markets and the defence of Property rights and are opposed to state intervention, believing it to cause more harm than good to the functioning of voluntary exchange between individuals.
