Opinion from a Libertarian ViewPoint

A Hoppean Perspective on Transgenderism: How To Stop Positivist Degeneration – LewRockwell

The “LGBT” movements have thus followed the path of lobbying in politics. Influence parties to pass laws with erga omnes enforceability. Leading to the consequence of the degenerate expansion of positive law.

Allowing those who perceive themselves as discriminated against to separate themselves from society, to physically remove themselves from it in order to voluntarily join a different jurisdiction as well as create a community of owners who base their principles on shared values could represent a solution to the invasiveness of the hyper-regulation imposed by the leviathan superstate [17]

The figure of Hans-Hermann Hoppe has the peculiarity of leaving no room for misleading interpretations. He has the advantage of not allowing distortion and false interpretations by the left “libertarians”. Anyone who can define himself as a lover of the natural order, or – as some have suggested – ordonaturalist, knows that it is impossible for the so-called left “libertarians” to distort Hoppe’s thinking, as is frequently done with Murray N. Rothbard and Ludwig Von Mises. For this reason, a slice of those who find themselves within the so-called “liberty movement” constantly try to isolate and marginalize Hoppean thinking as extraneous to the libertarian community. An attempt to redefine reality to break up the libertarian movement from its traditional values.

The German economist and philosopher Hans-Herman Hoppe, in outlining perspectives and action plans to achieve the goals of libertarianism, leaves no room for misunderstandings. Hoppe poses with surgical clarity an interpretation of how much moral decline is alien to the libertarian roots.

“In the U.S.; less than a century of full-blown democracy has resulted in steadily increasing moral degeneration, family and social disintegration, and cultural decay in the form of continually rising rates of divorce, illegitimacy, abortion, and crime.”, wrote Hoppe in the famous essay Democracy: the god that failed [1].

Hoppe, in the same essay, continues by stating “Likewise, in a covenant founded for the purpose of protecting family and kin, there can be no tolerance toward those habitually promoting lifestyles incompatible with this goal. They-the advocates of alternative, non-family and kin-centered lifestyles such as, for instance, individual hedonism, parasitism, nature-environment worship, homosexuality, or communism-will have to be physically removed from society, too, if one is to maintain a libertarian order.” [2]. The words of the German economist seem to leave no room for alternative interpretations.

This article does not want to be just a consideration on how the left pushes governments to impose themselves on the individual through the degeneration of legal positivism, but also offers insights on how the natural order can give clear and precise answers, free of contradictions and of absurd inferences on issues that appear as new.

The goal of this brief analysis is to try to offer some ideas for a narration of the reality of the transgender phenomenon from a Hoppean point of view and culturally close to the history and roots of the old continent.

To carry out this analysis, it is necessary to make a picture of the current reality that surrounds us today.
