Bill Ross: Human Nature (2006)
I will not mince words. Intelligent, morally aware people are terrified of current events and where trends lead, by the lessons of history combined with the awesome destructive power in the hands of our rulers who have long been accustomed to behaving in a criminal manner with no evidence that they can or will be brought to account. I have considered these issues and conclude that the powerlessness of people is illusionary, a product of subverted education, misrepresented history and media manipulation. The truth is that the only reason our civilization is in such dire straits is because it has been hijacked by criminals who need us more than we need them. The people have the power and it is easily wielded in a moral and non-violent manner to reestablish the balance of power between individuals and organized powers. Note: This is an incomplete work.
Lysander Spooner published Natural Law, or the Science of Justice as a pamphlet in 1882. The pamphlet had considerable influence among American and European anarchists of the day, and was reprinted in three editions in the three years following publication. Spooner meant the pamphlet to be the introduction to a comprehensive masterwork on the natural law of liberty, and it is a great tragedy of the history of political thought that Spooner never lived to complete the planned treatise.
Frédéric Bastiat: The Law (1850)
Anyone building a personal library of liberty must include in it a copy of Frédéric Bastiat's classic essay, "The Law." First published in 1850 by the great French economist and journalist, it is as clear a statement as has ever been made of the original American ideal of government, as proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence, that the main purpose of any government is the protection of the lives, liberties, and property of its citizens.
