Speaking of Liberty is a masterpiece: 470 pages of pure Rockwell.
This is Rockwell at his best. The Rockwell who muffles "loud-mouthed" statist, talk-show hosts. The Rockwell who turns commie environmentalists green. The Rockwell all the neocons, from David Frum to Bill Bennett, hate and fear. The Rockwell who is quick and funny — and deadly — when tossed into the lion's den. The Rockwell who brings a steel-edged consistency to the defense of liberty.
Speaking of Liberty is pure Rockwell. The essays cover a huge diversity of topics, but are united by a set of fixed principles: the corruption of politics, the universality and immutability of the ideas of freedom, the centrality of sound money and free enterprise, the moral imperative of peace and trade, the importance of hope and tenacity in the struggle for liberty, and the need for everyone to join the intellectual fight.
What an inspiring, thrilling, provocative, beautifully written work Speaking of Liberty is. You must have a copy on your desk or bedside table. But be sure to keep a yellow highlighter handy. And what a good-looking book too. Its sewn signatures, sturdy binding, and acid-free bright white paper, make it a work for the ages, just like its contents.
Behind my desk is a shelf stacked with books and pamphlets that comprise my “Freedom Arsenal." These are classics, like Rothbard's What Government Has Done To Our Money,” Henry Hazlitt's Economics in One Lesson.” and Bastiat's The Law,” literature about the glories of liberty. When I encounter inquiring minds, particularly youngsters, who need a jolt of liberty, I give them something from my arsenal. Speaking of Liberty will be a classic and I proudly add it to my “Freedom Arsenal.” Speaking of Liberty is hot, smart and convincing. It can make a real difference in the lives of friends and family, and for our country. Help me get it out there.
