"Modern libertarians focus on the size and scope of the State.  Their philosophy grew out of concern over overreaching government in the middle of the twentieth century, and the U.S. government today is many times bigger than it was back then.  The modern emphasis on shrinking the State, however, overshadows another important principle of the classical-liberal tradition that modern libertarianism derives from:  equality before the law."
