Background

TaraElla’s 2021 autobiography The TaraElla Story provides a detailed description of the context of her writing and thinking. She describes her context as the early 21st century Western world, and she has been mainly influenced by events like the Iraq War controversy, the campaign for LGBT rights including marriage equality, and the rise of postmodernism and cancel culture.

Political Beliefs

TaraElla identifies as a classical liberal. More specifically, she has written extensively about a branch of liberalism called Moral Libertarianism, where the core principle is that each individual is to have an equal amount of moral agency. In practice, this leads to self-determination for all, as well as limitations on government power so that it is (ideally) no more powerful than an average private citizen.

How does liberalism’s dedication to distributing liberty equally make it a moral ideology? To answer this question, we need to first look at what liberty is. Liberty is the power an individual has over their own actions, their ability to put their ideas into action. Therefore, looking at it from a moral perspective, liberty is moral agency, i.e. the ability to act in accordance with one’s moral compass. An equitable distribution of liberty therefore ensures an equitable distribution of moral agency.

-The Moral Libertarian Horizon, Volume 1

TaraElla is a free speech advocate, a consequence of her classical liberal beliefs. Furthermore, she believes that political temperament is inborn, and there is value to both progressive and conservative views. Therefore, she believes in respecting each individual’s political temperament, and bringing different sides to work together towards outcomes that have broad acceptance.

TaraElla identifies as a classical feminist. She believes in equality for all, regardless of gender.
