Red State Booknote Version 3.0

I would like to re-re-start the book notes project.  I really enjoyed it both times we’ve tried to do it.  I also found that I really learned a lot from the books.

This isn’t sanctioned by Erick (that I know of), but I am going forward with it.  Erick had originally wanted to do Frederic Bastait’s The Law.  I humbly suggest we read it and post our thoughts by this Sunday.   I plan to read through the chapter The Seductive Lure of Socialism because it somehow seems appropriate.  Here are some of the other books I want to explore off Erick’s first List:

The Road to Serfdom by F. A. Hayek
The Conservative Mind by Russell Kirk
Free to Choose by Milton Friedman
Conscience of a Conservative by Barry Goldwater
Federalist Papers
Democracy in America by Tocqueville
Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
God and Man at Yale by W.F. Buckley
Witness by Whittaker Chambers
The Political Writings of St. Augustine

As with Erick’s original post, these are in no particular order, although I would like to try The Road to Serfdom after we finish The Law.  Give me your thoughts, any suggestions you have for an order, or any titles you want added in.   Enjoy!
