Not a Libertarian Manifesto

•, By Laurence M. Vance

"Dont hurt people" and "Dont take their stuff" are actually the first two of six "rules for liberty" found in the first chapter of Matt Kibbes new book Dont Hurt People and Dont Take Their Stuff: A Libertarian Manifesto. The others are "Take responsibility," "Work for it," "Mind your own business," and "Fight the Power." Chapter 1 is indeed somewhat of a libertarian manifesto, but the rest of the book is standard conservative fare—just as I predicted.

I was made aware of Kibbes new book in a mass e-mail I received from Jim DeMint of the Heritage Foundation, an individual and an organization that I have often criticized. In the e-mail, DeMint recommended Kibbes book, although he failed to mention the last part of the title about the book being "a libertarian manifesto."
