  • A lot of my favorite libertarian literature is on the shorter side; more like long essays or pamphlets rather than book-length treatises (I love those for my own enjoyment, of course, but it’s nigh impossible to recommend an hour-length lecture to a friend, let alone an actual book). A couple of my favorite examples are Against Intellectual Property (Kinsella), Chaos Theory (Murphy), The Production of Security (Molinari), and The Discourse of Voluntary Servitude (Boetie). I would like to find more works of similar length, especially for the purpose of recommending short yet mind-blowing reads to friends/family. What are your favorites?

  • Whenever a person who opposes the military-industrial complex speaks out against it, neocons predictably say that this person is criticizing the people who are giving him the right to say such things. Hopefully, everyone here knows that this is nonsense, but how best to explain it? I want to write an article on this and make sure I cover all the bases.
