Give Me Liberty By Rose Wilder Lane


Rose Wilder Lane began as a communist, progressed through Jeffersonian, and finally arrived at radical individualism.

Give Me Liberty describes her transformation as she traveled through Western Europe, Eastern Europe, and Lenin’s Russia before returning to the American Midwest of the New Deal.

This short book began life as a magazine article, the lead article in the March 7, 1936, Saturday Evening Post. On request, Lane expanded her description and published it in book form in 1936.

    Give Me Liberty

    Give Me Liberty Here is Lane’s attempt at an manifesto, a presentation of her core ideas about liberty and humanity. It holds up as a wonderful tribute to the human person against the imposition and regimentation of the state. She had lived through the worst of it, and understood the implications of the great struggle. Kick off the discussion! Questions, comments, observations or elaborations?
