‘I’ve Got My Christmas Shopping Taken Care of for All My Non-Libertarian Friends!’

Email Print

That’s what the great libertarian radio host Brian Wilson said when I was on the air with him recently — and the gift he’d bought for those friends was my book, Libertarianism Today.

Libertarianism Today is a new introduction to libertarianism and the libertarian movement. It begins with the the basic libertarian idea that people should be free to do whatever they want as long as they don’t harm anyone else. Then the book looks at what that means for a wide range of current issues including war, the economy, health care, guns, drugs, online file-sharing, and more — all presented in a manner that’s readily understandable by any reasonably intelligent person, even if they have no background in economics, political theory, or philosophy.

Ron Paul says it’s “an excellent introduction to libertarian thought”; David Gordon says it’s “the best work of its kind since Murray Rothbard’s For a New Liberty“; and Stephan Kinsella says it’s “the best introduction to libertarianism ever.” Walter Block and Tom Woods liked it too.

So if Libertarianism Today sounds like something that would make a good Christmas gift for your non-libertarian friends — or even the libertarians who could use some more intellectual ammunition — Amazon can still ship it to you in plenty of time.
