The Libertarian Mind: A Short Explanation of and Introduction to Libertarianism
Libertarianism—the philosophy of personal and economic freedom—has deep roots in Western civilization and in American history, and it’s growing stronger.
Two long wars, chronic deficits, the financial crisis, the costly drug war, the campaigns of Ron Paul and Rand Paul, the growth of executive power under Presidents Bush and Obama, and the revelations about NSA abuses have pushed millions more Americans in a libertarian direction.
The Libertarian Mind, by David Boaz, the longtime executive vice president of the Cato Institute, is the best available guide to the history, ideas, and growth of this increasingly important political movement.
With new information on the threat of government surveillance, the policies that led up to and stemmed from the 2008 financial crisis, corruption in Washington, and the unsustainable welfare state, The Libertarian Mind is the ultimate resource for the current, burgeoning libertarian movement.
