Law-loving Libertarians

Think that a law-loving libertarian is a contradiction in terms?  Actually, as the following article explains, law (specifically, natural law) forms the basis of libertarian beliefs.  An orderly society requires rules.  But who makes them?  You and I or a distant, mechanistic bureaucracy that makes them for us?

The idea is that contracts are voluntarily entered into instead of contracts (laws, regulations, legislation, etc.) thrust upon us, as in the managerial state today.
