Rand Paul's speech about libertarianism is amazingly unexpected. He starts talking about a world with little to no government and he makes you go from finding the idea crazy to thinking that the best thing that we can do to improve our society is to get rid of the government for good.
Rand talks about the Non-Aggression Principe, which guides all the libertarian ideology. Which can be summed up as "do whatever you want, just don't hurt someone else's body, freedom or belongings". Free until you hurt someone else's freedom. It is an easy way of understanding who is right or wrong in almost every conflict that might come up in a society. This is a powerful message, since it reveals that the government tells us what to do with our lives and what we are allowed or not allowed to do with our own bodies.
He also talks about how even though people would be free to do the craziest things that they could think of, they would be guided by their own morals or virtue. For example, it would be very unlikely to see a conservative to suddenly turn to prostitution and drug abuse just because it is illegal if he comes from a community with strong values that contradict that behavior.

The three-headed guard dog from "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" was influenced by a mythological creature from Ancient Greece. Cerberus was a three-headed dog that guarded the Underworld to keep the souls from leaving. There are descriptions that depict Cerberus as having a serpent for a tail. In different stories, several details concerning the hound can be found to vary, including the number of heads; but the most common number is three. In the Harry Potter book, the dog is guarding the entrance that will lead to where the Sorcerer's stone is.
