4 Libertarian books for 30 bucks
Posted on Jan 8, 2014
Dear Friend of Liberty,
I'm offering you four important books for 30 bucks. Or you can pick just one for as low as $11.97. Free shipping.
I selected these four books for a reason.
These aren't just any old books about liberty. They are books about the Libertarian Party, about libertarianism applied to many issues, and about how to communicate Libertarian Party principles and solutions.
I want you to read these books this winter because I want to help you be a better Libertarian Party activist later this year.
One of them I wrote myself last year. I couldn't find a book that introduced the libertarian philosophy and also gave lots of information about the Libertarian Party for volunteers and candidates. So, I wrote that book myself!
It's called Introduction to the Libertarian Party.
Brian Holtz, of California, a multi-term member of the Libertarian Party's Platform Committee, writes:
I'm jealous at how good this book is! ... Most of the chapters would be great as standalone readings for those particular topics, and I hope the author releases them for redistribution, so they will be read more widely than even this instant classic will be.
You can find a list of the chapters on the order page.
I'm donating as many copies of my book as you order from this appeal, which ends on Jan. 31. So, 100 percent of your donation for this book will help fund other efforts after shipping costs are covered.
The book Why Government Doesn't Work was written by Harry Browne, the Libertarian Party's 1996 and 2000 nominee for president. Harry Browne was famous for his bold libertarian solutions and was considered a master communicator by many. These books from 1995 are not in new condition — they've been in our basement storage for more than a decade, but are still great for reading, especially if you are new to the party and aren't familiar with Browne's fantastic work.
The following two books, we're getting in bulk, at cost, and the profits help fund other LP projects.
Libertarianism in One Lesson, by David Bergland (Ninth Edition, 2005), answers the most common questions about libertarianism. What is libertarianism? Does libertarianism work in the "real world"? The book lays out the central premise of libertarianism — "you own yourself" — and reveals how that deceptively simple statement has an enormous impact on the relationship between government and individuals.
Finally, Secrets of Libertarian Persuasion, by Michael Cloud (2004), will help you "open hearts and minds to the ideas of liberty." From the book's cover: "Want to open closed minds? Want to make people really listen? Want to make people hungry to hear about liberty? Want to learn more powerful and effective ways to communicate libertarian ideas? Secrets of Libertarian Persuasion makes this possible." For disclosure purposes, Michael Cloud is a current board member on the LNC.
Again, these aren't just general books about liberty, politics or economics. These were selected to help you be a better Libertarian Party activist.
Yours in liberty,
Libertarian National Committee
