Craig Biddle on Auberon Herbert

Here is the opening paragraph:
Auberon Herbert (1838–1906) was a 19th-century British political philosopher and a member of Parliament, who recognized that each individual has inalienable rights to direct his own mind and body, and to keep and use the product of his own effort. In defense of these rights, Herbert advocated a strictly limited, voluntarily funded, rights-protecting government. This social system, which Herbert called “voluntaryism,” is what is known today as laissez-faire capitalism.
It’s always welcome to discover new voices for liberty! Well worth reading Biddle's post at The Objective Standard blog.
