9780062308252: Don't Hurt People and Don't Take Their Stuff: A Libertarian Manifesto

In this essential manifesto of the new libertarian movement, New York Times bestselling author and president of FreedomWorks Matt Kibbe makes a stand for individual liberty and shows us what we must do to preserve our freedom.

Don't Hurt People and Don't Take Their Stuff is a rational yet passionate argument that defends the principles upon which America was founded—principles shared by citizens across the political spectrum. The Constitution grants each American the right to self-determination, to be protected from others whose actions are destructive to their lives and property. Yet as Kibbe persuasively shows, the political and corporate establishment consolidates its power by infringing upon our independence—from taxes to regulations to spying—ultimately eroding the ideals, codified in law, that have made the United States unique in history.

Kibbe offers a surefire plan for reclaiming our inalienable rights and regaining control of our lives, grounded in six simple rules:

  1.  Don’t hurt people: Free people just want to be left alone, not hassled or harmed by someone else with an agenda or designs over their life and property.
  2. Don’t take people’s stuff: America’s founders fought to ensure property rights and our individual right to the fruits of our labors.
  3. Take responsibility: Liberty takes responsibility. Don’t sit around waiting for someone else to solve your problems.
  4. Work for it: For every action there is an equal reaction. Work hard and you’ll be rewarded.
  5. Mind your own business: Free people live and let live.
  6. Fight the power: Thanks to the Internet and the decentralization of knowledge, there are more opportunities than ever to take a stand against corrupt authority.

Product Description:

From the New York Times bestselling author of Hostile Takeover and President of FreedomWorks—"the most influential Tea Party-aligned group in Washington" (New York Times)—comes this passionate defense of libertarianism, the first manifesto of the libertarian movement.

Libertarianism is one of the hottest political movements in contemporary America, animating both the right and left with its emphasis on personal liberty. Espoused everywhere from young activists on college campuses to the up-and-coming stars of the right wing like Marco Rubio and Rand Paul, libertarian ideology is gripping frustrated conservatives and political contrarians across the nation. In addition, figures on the right, including Ron Paul, Glenn Beck, and the Tea Party, have all rallied around the libertarian mantra and raised its profile in the national consciousness.

Don't Hurt People and Don't Take Their Stuff is a rational yet deeply felt argument supporting the individual against the oppression of the collective. Time and time again, Matt Kibbe points out, the political and corporate establishment in Washington consolidates its power by infringing upon basic American freedoms—destroying the principles that made the United States unique in history. He also offers a clear vision and action plan for the fight to be free.
