For libertarians, the basic unit of social analysis is the individual. Individuals are, in all cases, the source and foundation of creativity, activity, and society. In the new issue of Cato Policy Report, Cato scholar David Boaz, author of The Libertarian Mind: A Manifesto for Freedom, explains the roles and rights of individuals in a free society, and cautions against a vision of a world in which individuals have no way to cooperate with others except through the state.
Two long wars, chronic deficits, the financial crisis, the costly drug war, the growth of executive power under Presidents Bush and Obama, and the revelations about NSA abuses, have given rise to a growing libertarian movement in our country – with a greater focus on individual liberty and less government power. David Boaz’s newly released The Libertarian Mind is a comprehensive guide to the history, philosophy, and growth of the libertarian movement, with incisive analyses of today’s most pressing issues and policies.
