New Video Guide to Libertarianism

I hope everybody’s read my book The Libertarian Mind. Not to mention the companion volume The Libertarian Reader.


But for those who prefer listening or watching videos to reading, I’m excited to announce my new online Introduction to Libertarianism, the first of several Guides to libertarian ideas produced by Lib​er​tar​i​an​ism​.org. Each Guide will include an introductory video, a series of video lectures, and a featured book, along with additional reading lists, essays, and links to other materials. Here’s a peek:

Coming soon: Guides on such topics as economics, political philosophy, and public policy, generally with a short original book to accompany the videos. For the Introduction to Libertarianism, the accompanying book is The Libertarian Mind. The 14 short lectures — 10 to 20 minutes each — track the sections of the book:

The Early Roots of Libertarianism


The Classical Liberal Era


The Modern Libertarian Revival


What Rights Do We Have?


The Dignity of the Individual


Pluralism and Toleration


Law and the Constitution


Civil Society


Networks of Trust


The Market Process


The Seen and the Unseen and International Trade


What Big Government Is All About


Public Choice


The Obsolete State

My colleagues at Lib​er​tar​i​an​ism​.org and I have tried to create the best available introduction to libertarianism here in 2015. And by the way, even though it’s called “Introduction,” I think almost any libertarian will find some new and interesting material in both the lectures and The Libertarian Mind.


Read the book! And check out the video lectures at Lib​er​tar​i​an​ism​.org.
