Libertarianism for Beginners Read Online Free - Libertarianism isn't about winning elections; it is first and foremost a political philosophy--a description of how, in the opinion of libertarians, free people ought to treat one another, at least when they use the law, which they regard as potentially dangerous. If libertarians are correct, the law should intrude into people's lives as little as possible, rarely telling them what to do or how to live.
A political and economic philosophy as old as John Locke and John Stuart Mill, but as alive and timely as Rand Paul, the Tea Party, and the novels of Ayn Rand, libertarianism emphasizes individual rights and calls for a radical reduction in the power and size of government. "Libertarianism For Beginners" lays out the history and principles of this often-misunderstood philosophy in lucid, dispassionate terms that help illuminate today's political dialogue."

That said, I like to think of myself as relatively objective when it comes to these things. As a fellow libertarian-who at times strongly differs from Mr. Seavey-I can a...

Todd Seavy provides a brief but thorough introduction of Libertarianism through informative methods rather than persuasive methods, yet it is his objective approach towards this political philosophy that is ultimately the most persuasive. The Libertarian Party is unfortunately still widely unappr...

Maybe I'm not a beginner.
This was a fine book that briefly explained libertarianism and the different factions of it.
I have been confused, and still am, at how liberal-libertarians support their views. But I suppose to an anarcho-libertarian, a conservative-libertarian is equally confusing.
