The Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What's Wrong with America

The Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What's Wrong with America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everywhere in America, the forces of digitization, innovation, and personalization are expanding our options and bettering the way we live. Everywhere, that is, except in our politics. There we are held hostage to an eighteenth century system, dominated by two political parties whose ever-more-polarized rhetorical positions mask a mutual interest in maintaining a stranglehold on power.

The Declaration of Independents is a compelling and extremely entertaining manifesto on behalf of a system better suited to the future--one structured by the essential libertarian principles of free minds and free markets. Gillespie and Welch profile libertarian innovators, identify the villains propping up the ancien regime, and take aim at do-something government policies that hurt most of those they claim to protect. Their vision will resonate with a wide swath of frustrated citizens and young voters, born after the Cold War's end, to whom old tribal allegiances, prejudices, and hang-ups about everything from hearing a foreign language on the street to gay marriage to drug use simply do not make sense.

Synopsis:

Why do we have more choices at the local coffee shop than we do at the ballot box?

Synopsis:

The editors of Reason.tv and Reason magazine describe how digitization, innovation and personalization are expanding options and improving everything except politics and promote their vision of the future structured by libertarian principles of free minds and free market.
