Down With Power: Libertarian Policy in a Time of Crisis - by L.Neil Smith (2013) Need your libertarian arguments stoked up before hitting the campaign trail? This is the book. WINNER OF THE FREEDOM BOOK OF THE YEAR 2012-2013 HOW TO FIX AMERICA The “land of the free” is in deep trouble—the deepest since the War Between the States—not just economically, but politically and every other way. Her greatest institutions are crumbling all around us. In Down With Power, the acclaimed libertarian writer and thinker L. Neil Smith, author of over 30 liberty-related books and 50-year veteran of the freedom movement, strips this crisis to its essentials, offering solutions—sometimes “radical”, in that they go straight to the root, more often simple common sense—resulting in a body of ideas that can elevate America to her former greatness. Subjects covered include: The Zero Aggression principle National defense The moral effects of taxation Limiting corporate power The truth about money The United Nations, terrorism, and torture Global warming If you’re feeling politically homeless these days; If you’re new to libertarianism and want to know what it’s really all about; If you’re a libertarian candidate and need a campaign guide; or If you just want to sort out the fakers from the real thing, Down With Power is the book for you! And possibly a book that can change the course of history You should pick up a copy of Lever Action: Essays on Liberty - by L.Neil Smith as well.

As an LNS friend and fan for a decade or two, we chatted for for 3 hours one evening when I was filling in for Art Bell. As noted above, Neil's scribblings - both fiction and non - are studies in libertarian thought, principle and strategy. "Down with Power" is one those "must reads" -- or "must hears". No time to read? I happily recorded the audiobook for Neil; it's available for download here: link text
