The party can be described as libertarian with opposition to high government involvement in the economy and personal lives, and centralization of political power. Its members are advocates of the free market and often subscribe to the Austrian School of economic thought. They seek to lower tax rates and restrict state redistribution of wealth to a minimum, and introduce a constitutional amendment disallowing an unbalanced budget. They also believe that downsizing the government would leave less space for corruption, a somewhat problematic issue of Czech politics.
Party members stress that the M5S is not a party but a "movement" and it may not be included in the traditional left right paradigm. The "five stars" are a reference to five key issues: public water, sustainable transport, sustainable development, connectivity, and environmentalism. Beppe Grillo and several party members strongly condemned all recent western wars (Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria) and Italian military and foreign policy
