The Law, Frederic Bastiat. 1850. Paperback. 75 pages.
The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress, by Robert Heinlein. Copyright 1966. Paperback. 302 pages.
Heinlein's writings are filled with liberty loving heroes. This particular novel is explicitly libertarian. The moon (Luna) is a twenty-first century penal colony for earth. And on the earth, in the twenty-first century, those who don't take orders well are the criminals. This novel is filled with both action and philosophy. Read it for inspiration.
Probability Broach, by L. Neil Smith. Copyright 1980. Paperback. 273 pages.
I love this book every time I read it. And I have read it more than once. More than twice, actually. Smith writes about a society where liberty is taken for granted, and taken seriously. The hero is a cop from Colorado who falls through a broach in the time-space continuum and into an alternative earth where the society is based on a serious appreciation for individual freedom. If you have ever wondered what such a paradise might be like, join Win Bear, our protagonist, and go for a visit. I promise you will enjoy the ride.
