PT. 1

The Philosophy of Liberty

In Section 1, The Philosophy of Liberty, you’ll learn the four bedrocks of libertarian philosophy: liberty, individualism, toleration, and peace. We do not use these words lightly. Section 1 establishes … 

– Why Libertarians believe humans should be free to do as we please — as long as we do not infringe on the rights of another

– What those rights are, including the philosophical grounding of Thomas Jefferson’s famous words: “Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”

– Why one is free to be a socialist within a libertarian society, and why the inverse is not true

– Why Libertarians believe war is not inevitable, and what the alternative to war is

PT. 2

Economics & Liberty

In Section 2, you’ll learn why free-market institutions lead people out of poverty better than any other force known to humankind. Indeed, without freedom, prosperity can’t happen. This section, Economics & Liberty demonstrates …

– How freedom, combined with human nature, provides incentives for everyone to work toward a better world

– That “How to increase the size of the pie for everyone” is a more compassionate concern than “How to split the pie equally”

– What the famous quote, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely” means

– How bootleggers, Baptists, and other lobbyists gain power

Why decisions should be made by people in their own communities instead of by bureaucrats in far-away capitals

PT. 3

LAW & LIBERTY

In Section 3, you’ll learn the difference between designed order and spontaneous order — and why social and economic order are more effective and prosperous when they’re like the latter. This section, Law & Liberty argues that …

– No group or individual, whether king, priest, president, legislator, or judge, is the source of moral law

– Limits on the powers of government can slow the rise of tyrants

– Preferences and values are expressed through self-interested, voluntary exchange

– We are all equal in our moral right to pursue whatever activity we wish, short of violating the right of others

Law and Liberty also drops perhaps the best-known and most powerful of Adam Smith’s quotes.
