I just finished reading Matthew Alexander’s anarchocapitalist novel, Withur We. Was I entertained? Bored? Convinced to throw Molotov cocktails at government buildings? Continue on, dear reader, and find out.
Let’s face it, novels celebrating the free market and individual rights are pretty hard to come by. Most everything in the fiction section of your local bookstore is some paean to collectivism, or diatribe against the evils of capitalism and the “soul killing” nature of consumerism.
But you don’t believe that stuff.
You know capitalism, mixed with a political system that protects individual rights, has been the single greatest force for good on the planet, lifting billions out of crushing poverty. You don’t want to read all that bilge about how you’re a bad, bad person for supporting it.
So what is a wayward libertarian to do? Especially when so much of your money is stolen by the government each year that you have very little left over to buy books?
Why, turn to the free stuff on the Internet of course!
Luckily I’ve taken the time to compile a list of the 5 best libertarian novels (in no particular order) that also happen to be free. Gratis. Sin dinero. The low, low cost of nothing. Just for you.
I’ve even included links to where you can download them.
I know, right?
