I was recently given a book that I must recommend to all of you.
It is a children's book entitled: An Island Called Liberty by Joseph Specht.
While I joked earlier about having never read Ayn Rand, I do find this book on par with other great libertarian primers by Charles Murray or David Boaz. There is nothing like a children's book to expose how simple a concept can be.
The book is summarized by this blurb on the back cover:
Inside is the story of a right friendly land, Where people were quick to lend a free hand.With the best of intentions they passed many laws, To fix what they felt were quite fixable flaws.But the fixes, they found, were too much in the end, For the bureaus and programs and taxes they penned.
Once the lessons were learned, here's what they knew:
The contentment of many can't come from the few.
