I have decided to embark upon the exciting new challenge of writing a book on libertarianism, introducing the ideas of liberty and the errors of collectivism to a British audience through the medium of Austrian economics, conceptual explanation and historical illustration.
An extract from my proposed introduction reads:
The book’s approach is to take a topic of popular debate, make the case for freedom in that particular area before going on to address the most common objections. The format was inspired by my legal background and belief that it is only by overcoming objections in the popular mind can libertarians ever hope to affect real change in the political arena.
To set me on my way, I seek your collective wisdom in the matter of some important preliminary questions:
1. Who should the book be addressed to?
2. What topics most need addressing? (Money and banking is already high on the list!)
3. What should be left out?
These and other questions will be posed on Facebook all next week. Please take the time (if it can be spared) to visit the Libertarian Home Facebook page to vote and contribute suggestions. Questions about how to sell libertarianism in a book are also questions about how to sell libertarianism, so I hope you’ll find this discussion useful.
Should you wish to send me an e-mail, please do so at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you very much.
