The Capitalism Site  Capitalism is a social system based on the principle of individual rights. Politically, it is the system of laissez-faire (freedom). Legally it is a system of objective laws (rule of law as opposed to rule of man). Economically, when such freedom is applied to the sphere of production its’ result is the free-market.

Economics in one lesson  - A million copy seller, Henry Hazlitt’s Economics in One Lesson is a classic economic primer. But it is also much more, having become a fundamental influence on modern “libertarian” economics of the type espoused by Ron Paul and others. (see recommended reading below) 

The Lawful and the Legal - Frank van Dun

This paper attempts to uncover the archetypical situations and relationships that appear to have been the original referents of words such as 'law' and 'rights', 'legal' and 'just', as well as other words that are indispensable in discourses about law and justice: 'freedom', 'equality', 'peace', 'authority', 'society' and others. The concepts of the lawful and the legal can be clearly distinguished. The distinction between them sheds an interesting light, not only on the lawyer's conception of law, but also on the old controversy over natural law. From the analysis there emerges a distinctly liberal conception of social order as well as a a naturalistic, non-normative conception of natural law, with no metaphysical or theological connotations of a "higher law". The elements uncovered by the analysis provide a coherent scheme of law that can serve as the basis for a non-deontic, rights-based logic of law.

Natural Law  - Frank van Dun

The word 'law' means order, hence natural law is simply the natural order. In the sense in which natural law is relevant to jurists, it is the natural order of persons -- specifically, the order of natural persons: human beings that are capable of rational, purposive action, speech and thought. In short, natural law is the natural order of the human world.

The Most Dangerous Superstition  Larken Rose

Here is the truth of how people have been conned, cajoled and coerced into selling their birthright of Liberty for some watered down soup called "American Freedom." This book exposes the evil of ‘Authority,’ the fraud of “ overnment," and how individual rights are the singular key to liberty and equality. Free PDF Download.

The End of All Evil Jeremy Locke

The intention of this book is to define the doctrine of liberty — to forever dispel the lie that culture and law have a rightful claim over your life. You are not the property of any king, dictator or nation. While cultures teach that human freedom means anarchy, history shows clearly that what freedom truly brings to people is peace and prosperity. Free PDF Download.

Atlas Shrugged ~ Ayn Rand    Atlas Shrugged sweeps the reader into its own world of larger-than-life characters—including the productive genius who becomes a worthless playboy and the great industrialist who doesn’t know that he is working for his own destruction. The story is a mystery about a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world—and did. Society disintegrates, food shortages spark riots, factories shutdown by the hundreds. Is this man a vicious destroyer—or the greatest of liberators? What is the motor of the world? What is required to restart it?

Capitalism the Unknown Ideal ~ Ayn Rand   Capitalism is not a treatise on the economics of capitalism, but a collection of essays on the philosophy of capitalism: the basic truths and principles that make capitalism the only moral and practical social system—the only system consistent with man’s nature and the requirements of his life—the only one that enables each individual to reach his full, glorious potential.

The Virtue of Selfishness  ~ Ayn Rand  The moral principles of Objectivism, the philosophy that holds man's life--the life proper to a rational being--as the standard of moral values and regards altruism as incompatible with man's nature, with the creative requirements of his survival, and with a free society.

Objectivism - The philosophy of Ayn Rand ~ Leonard Peikoff  This brilliantly conceived and organized book is based on a lecture course given by Dr. Leonard Peikoff in 1976, entitled "The Philosophy of Objectivism."

The Law ~ Frederick Bastiat  (read on line)  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.

Economics in one lesson ~ Henry Hazzlit  Concise and instructive, this book is also deceptively prescient and far-reaching in its efforts to dissemble economic fallacies that are so prevalent they have almost become a new orthodoxy. 

Taking Responsibility  Nathanial Branden.  Branden demonstrates that only by taking responsibility for ourselves , a culture of personal accountability can sustain and preserve a civilized society. Our basic choice — to think or not to think, and to live responsibly or irresponsibly — reflects the essence of what it means to be human. Our freedom to choose is our burden, our challenge, our glory.

The Philosophy of Liberty

When you hear Ron Paul say that he stands for the Philosophy of Liberty, this is what he means.
The philosophy of liberty is based on self-ownership. This simple but elegant and hard-hitting animation will explain exactly what that means. It's a great tool anyone can use to educate children and adults about our right to life, liberty, and the property we create - and our responsibility to think, speak and act.

Traitor or Patriot?

So why do people take the Government Owned Media's word for anything? Why are people not able to simply read a court ruling, look up the cited statutes and codes and discern for themselves what the ruling really means? Wake up and do it America. This ruling IS NOT WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN LEAD TO BELIEVE IT IS! AND ONLY WE THE PEOPLE CAN ENFORCE IT!!!  This message has global implications!

 The Market for Liberty (Audio Book - listen only) Morris and Linda Tannehill's iconoclastic "The Market for Liberty" is one of the most important books of our time. Written in 1970, it is even more relevant now in an era of rapidly vanishing personal liberty caused by an ever more intrusive and expensive "government"; an antidote to the force and coercion of "government".

The Revolution Continues

We cannot improve on history by blindly revering any individual, document, or event. We can learn a lot from the Founders, both from what they got right AND from what they got wrong. And we can do better than they did. This video explains why this website proposes the protection of unalienable rights -WITHOUT government. 

"New" Age Bullshit And The Suppression Of The Sacred Mas

This is the presentation Mark Passio gave at the Free Your Mind 2 Conference in Philadelphia, PA on April 27, 2013.
In this presentation Mark exposes 10 "New" Age Deceptions, and then offers balanced corrections to each distorted "New" Age "teaching." If you have fallen for the "feel-good spirituality" of the "New" Age Movement, this presentation will provide a much-needed street-wise viewpoint, and help you to understand how you've been deceived by "New" Age Religion.

Who owns you? 

I believe self-ownership is an important foundation of a voluntary society. If you don’t believe you own yourself, you probably don’t believe in property rights, and therefore likely believe that allowing someone else to make decisions about oneself or one’s property is acceptable. In reality, this merely makes you, and everyone else, a slave to those making such decisions about people’s lives. So – who owns you?

Mark Passio's Natural Law Seminar - Natural Law: The REAL Law

This 3 part video presentation by Mark Passio is a masterpiece concerning Natural Law. I had not studied his work until I’d finished Student of Mind and Mastering Consciousness but there us no doubt that Mark and I agree on the fundamentals of Natural Law and their application relative to the nature of Man. Strongly recommended viewing!
