Here’s the opening of the book.
Don’t hurt people, and don’t take their stuff. Simple and straightforward, that’s liberty in a nutshell – no assembly required.
And yet it seems like, more and more, the decisions Washington makes about what to do for us, or to us, or even against us, are having an increasingly adverse impact on our lives. Young people can’t find jobs, millions of Americans are losing the healthcare plans they were promised they could keep, and every one of us is somehow being targeted, monitored, snooped on, conscripted, induced, taxed, subsidized, regulated, or otherwise manipulated someone else’s agenda, based on someone else’s decisions made in some secret meeting or closed-door legislative deal.
Our government is out of control. But setting things right again requires that you step up and take your freedom back.
From Matt Kibbe, the influential leader of FreedomWorks, Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff is the first true manifesto of a new libertarian grassroots movement. As political powermongers and crony corporatists in Washington continue to consolidate their control and infringe on our most fundamental liberties, Kibbe makes the libertarian case for freer people, more voluntary cooperation, and solving problems from the bottom up. He calls out the tyranny of faceless bureaucrats with too much power and discretion, laying out a clear road map for restoring liberty. A witty yet piercing critique of government’s expanding control over you and your future, Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff is a vital read for all those who cherish personal liberty and the unalienable right to choose your own path in life.
I couldn’t have said it better myself. For too long, government has violated and taken away our freedoms. From our privacy in our home and electronic devices, to choosing our own healthcare plan and doctor, government is taking away our right to choose and be left alone. Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff is the real deal for the making the case in restoring liberty and re-restraining the power of the federal government.
If you’re a libertarian, you’ll enjoy and delve into this book like I have and will agree with pretty much everything said. If you’re not, I suggest keeping an open mind of what is said. Believe me this is the best spent $20.42 I’ve spent in awhile. Let me know what you think in the comments below. Thanks for listening.
