A Libertarian Princess? In Anime?!

You better believe it!

Above is Alisha Diphda from “Tales of Zestiria (the X),” and she was arguably the best part of that Anime show — sorry, Sorey! (pun intended)

Sure, she’s friggin’ beautiful but that’s not why she makes the show….

What does it mean to be a “Libertarian”?

Absolute minimal government, law, and bureaucracy, primary focus on individual freedoms being maximized, and major tenets including free-market economics, state control primarily at the municipal level, a citizen’s militia instead of a standing army, and ideals such as the Golden Rule, the Non-aggression Principle, and the Principle of Self-governance constitute the majority of what it “means” to be a Libertarian (mind, the label “Libertarian” is quite broad and thus there are Libertarians who do not abide by all of the above).  Well-known Libertarians include Ron Paul and Stefan Molyneux.

Back to Alisha:

Alisha’s a princess, but she doesn’t stay behind the walls of her palace and selfishly reap the benefits of high-status (unlike other residents of that same palace); she knows that’s a terrible way to “serve her people,” as she (rightly) feels she should; she also can see what her palace contemporaries are doing (bureaucracy…) and knows it’s wrong.  Instead, she goes out there; she walks and talks with the citizens, tries to help them out anyway she can, and can be seen at the front of her army the odd time she actually has to fight.  She can also hold her own well both in politics and in combat.  Her views on war are outstanding; she will NEVER send an army out to initiate a fight, but instead she repeatedly orders her troops to defend and only to fight if provoked by the enemy (ie, the Non-aggression Principle).

Despite all the odds against her, she stay true to herself which is certainly the best part about her.  With “Izetta: The Last Witch” debuting last year, Princess Ortfine of Eylstadt can also be considered a “Libertarian-esque” Anime protagonist (who also happens to be a princess)!

Anyway…, “Zestiria” is definitely worth watching for many of the reasons why “Symphogear” would be worth watching.  There’s a fair amount of insight into the Evils of our World, as well as some insight into what Good people can do about it.

Cheers!
