Life, death, and common sense (was: Who and what is libertarian? How libertarian are they?)

Steve,

  OK... the common sense rule that places a fairly high value on
avoiding unnecessary or undesired death. I don't really care *why* the
guy in the example wants to live; it's enough for me that he does.

Yours in liberty,

Ah, but what makes that solution better?

  Common sense.

Yes, but what common sense rule is being applied?

The rule that happiness is the basis of morality would be consistent
with your judgment. But this would make you a utilitarian, which you
reject.
