This is a magnificent short book on the Voluntaryist philosophy as it pertains to many topics including War, Foreign Policy, Justice, Courts, Prisons, Taxation, Banking, Property Taxes, Economics, Money, Corporations, Unions, Schooling, Medical Care, Welfare, Prohibition, Environmentalism, Intellectual Property, Marriage, Parenting, Bullying, Racism, Personal Freedom, and the Internet. If you want to give someone a wonderful little introduction to the philosophy of freedom this would be a great choice.
The great illusion of the current paradigm of statism is that governments achieve a worthwhile reduction of violence. Governments are the greatest cause of violence in the world today. They are coercive monopolies with only an illusion of public support. Everything they do is based on a presumed right to point guns at people who are acting peacefully.
Adam Kokesh, FREEDOM!
