Overview
WITH A FOREWORD BY RON PAUL
Nothing makes traditional left and right kiss and make up faster than when they're faced with an articulate libertarian. Avert your eyes from this dangerous extremist, citizen Government is composed of wise public servants who innocently pursue the common good
In Real Dissent, Tom Woods demolishes some of the toughest critics of libertarianism in his trademark way. In doing so he strays beyond what he calls the index card of allowable opinion, the narrow range within which the media and political classes permit debate to take place in America.
Should 40% or 35% of our income be taxed? That's the kind of debate the New York Times prefers. Should our income be taxed at all? Now that's out of bounds, citizen
In foreign policy, Americans are permitted to choose between bombing a despised country or starving its people to death. You favor peace? Why, you must be an "extremist"
On the Federal Reserve, the debate is over which policy the Fed should pursue. But what if the Fed is itself the problem? No answer, because the question isn't raised.
Real Dissent is organized into ten parts:
Part I: War and Propaganda
Part II: Capitalism and Anti-Capitalism
Part III: Libertarianism Attacked, and My Replies
Part IV: Ron Paul and Forbidden Truths
Part V: End the Fed
Part VI: History and Liberty
Part VII: When Libertarians Go Wrong on people who don't quite get their own philosophy]
Part VIII: Books You May Have Missed
Part IX: Talking Liberty: Selected Tom Woods Show Interviews
Part X: Back to Basics
Afterword: How I Evaded the Gatekeepers of Approved Opinion
The index card of allowable opinion forces Americans into narrow and pointless debates, and closes off discussion of plausible and humane alternatives. For the sake of American liberty, it's time we set that thing on fire.
This book is a match.
PRAISE FOR TOM WOODS:
"During my presidential campaigns, Tom Woods wrote some of the most effective replies to some of my unkindest critics....
"Real Dissent is great fun to read, but also filled with useful debating points that will come in handy as you make the case for the free society with friends and family. Over the years I have worked together closely with Tom, one of the libertarian movement's brightest and most prolific scholars, and I am delighted to commend his new book to you. You will enjoy it, and profit from it."
Ron Paul, former U.S. Congressman
"The smartest guy in the room."
Judge Andrew P. Napolitano, Senior Judicial Analyst, FOX News
