My Favorite Book Of 2007

My Favorite Book Of 2007 – Radicals for Capitalism: A Freewheeling History of the Modern American Libertarian Movement You won’t buy it for the prose (not a memorable sentence) but you’ll love the even-handed presentation of ideas that matter. This is an indispensable book for anyone interested in libertarian thought. It is an important book and I couldn’t put it down. Questions I have for its author Brian Doherty of Reason magazine: * What things make you doubt libertarianism? * Can you perceive a circumstance where you would come to the belief that illegal immigration was bad? * What are common relationship interpersonal issues for libertarians? * How has your personal life affected your libertarian philosophy and vice versa? Have you had urges you could not control, urges that left you wishing the government would ban what you sought/limit your choices? * Is the libertarian able to overcome the instinct of ownership of one’s spouse? How would a rational libertarian think and feel about his spouse having an illicit affair? Is libertarianism any solace? * Are libertarians more or less religious than the general population? * How does a libertarian stay happy with a decidedly non-libertarian country and world? How do you avoid depression? * Economists tend to have more wisdom than any other branch of the Nobel prizes (Dennis Prager). Why?
