Peter Vallentyne “Left Libertarianism: A Primer”

One of the central differences between “left” and “right” libertarianism is the status of natural resources and land.  What justification can be given for, and what restrictions placed upon, original acquisition?  This book chapter is a nice overview of left libertarianism and, importantly, includes a a valuable bibliography of past and present left libertarian writings.
