"Why I'm NOT a Libertarian": it's mostly about inherited (dis)advantages

I’ll let Stephen Woodford, on “Rationality Rules”, explain "Why I’m Not a Libertarian".

He doesn’t believe in natural rights, or free will, and he believes that we didn’t choose the circumstances of our birth or our talents, so we couldn’t have earned all we have.

He says libertarianism is more about “freedom from” than “freedom to”. He also mentions that a personal social contract is necessary for any kind of order. (Hope that doesn't lead to a social credit score!)
Yet he says he is a “liberal”.
