True Libertarianism

by Walter Block

It has gotten to the point, nowadays, that whenever I see a new book out with "libertarian" or "libertarianism" in the title, I cringe. It is not because I don't think that on net balance, they are not all forces for the good. They are. Given that they at least spell the name of this philosophy correctly, they do more good than harm. The more publications of this sort the better. If we are to promote libertarianism, it cannot be done without continually keeping the concept of liberty in the public mind, and there are few better ways to do this than by publishing more and more volumes on this topic. But, on the other hand — and, believe me, there is another hand, I still cringe when I peruse such titles.
