9780062308276: 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.

From the Back Cover:

Do you believe in the freedom of individuals to determine their own future and solve problems cooperatively?

Don't hurt people, and don't take their stuff. Simple and straightforward, that's liberty in a nutshell—no assembly required.

And yet it seems like, more and more, the decisions Washington makes about what to do for us, or to us, or even against us, are having an increasingly adverse impact on our lives. Young people can't find jobs, millions of Americans are losing the health care plans they were promised they could keep, and every one of us is somehow being targeted, monitored, snooped on, conscripted, induced, taxed, subsidized, regulated, or otherwise manipulated by someone else's agenda, based on someone else's decisions made in some secret meeting or closed-door legislative deal.

What gives?

Our government is out of control. But setting things right again requires that you step up and take your freedom back.

From Matt Kibbe, the influential leader of FreedomWorks, Don't Hurt People and Don't Take Their Stuff is the first true manifesto of a new libertarian grassroots movement. As political powermongers and crony corporatists in Washington continue to consolidate their control and infringe on our most fundamental liberties, Kibbe makes the libertarian case for freer people, more voluntary cooperation, and solving problems from the bottom up. He calls out the tyranny of faceless bureaucrats with too much power and discretion, laying out a clear road map for restoring liberty. A witty yet piercing critique of government's expanding control over you and your future, Don't Hurt People and Don't Take Their Stuff is a vital read for all those who cherish personal liberty and the unalienable right to choose your own path in life.

Do you believe in the freedom of individuals to determine their own futures and solve problems cooperatively?

Don't hurt people, and don't take their stuff. Simple and straightforward, that's liberty in a nutshell. And yet it seems that, more and more, the decisions CEOs and Washington bureaucrats make about what to do for us, or to us, or even against us, are having an increasingly adverse impact on our lives and freedoms. From Matt Kibbe, the influential leader of FreedomWorks, Don't Hurt People and Don't Take Their Stuff is the first true manifesto of a new libertarian grassroots movement, in which Kibbe clearly articulates the case for freer people, more voluntary cooperation, and solving problems from the bottom up.

The rules for liberty

  1. Don't hurt people: Free people just want to be left alone, not hassled or harmed by someone else's agenda or designs on 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 means 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: Take a stand against corrupt authority.
