Libertarian: Rights Activist, Firefighter

David Bergland is an attorney, activist and social philosopher who wrote Libertarianism in One Lesson, and has been a Libertarian US presidential candidate…and a volunteer firefighter.

A martial artist, he has led workshops on communication and problem prevention.

Libertarians support the 75% volunteer tax-free firefighter system, with additional choice in innovative private fire companies, and voluntarily funded community trusts so all have basic protection. They’ve led the trend in improved education, safety, and response that has reduced fatalities and moved firefighters to community education–and prevention. They believe this model can be perfected and spread to all public services.
