A PROOF THAT LIBERTARIANISM IS EITHER FALSE OR BANAL

Abstract 

In this paper I consider all 243 positions that could constitute libertarianism and show that all but a few are false and the few remaining are banal. I argue further that all 243 versions must issue a promissory note for (what I call) the Reducibility of Interference Thesis and to (what I call) the Reducibility of Ownership Thesis, on neither of which can the libertarian make good.
