Since announcing the birth of my libertarian book project back in September 2012, the project has waxed and waned as I have tried to decide on a focus. At long last, that process has been concluded and I now have a direction and a purpose to my writing having decided to address the controversial subject of capitalism and the poor.
The central theme of the book is that only radical, free market capitalism offers real solutions to the problems of poverty and that government attempts to help the poor through socialism or other forms of state intervention not only fail to achieve their intended outcomes but actively hinder the people the intervention is designed to help. Whilst I won’t expect many gasps of horror from the readers of Libertarian Home, I am expecting such gasps from members of the political mainstream as along the way I slaughter some of our most sacred cows e.g. minimum wage laws whilst offering alternative perspectives on common interpretations of historical events such as the industrial revolution.
Thank you for your ongoing support and expect to see an extract from the first chapter on Libertarian Home soon!
