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