"The twin pillars of the nation created by America's Founders were strict limits on the power of central government and strict protections of individual rights. Now, at the close of the twentieth century, that state is gone - and Charles Murray wants to bring it back. In What It Means to Be a Libertarian, he offers a radical blueprint for overhauling our dysfunctional government and replacing it with a system that fosters human happiness because it safeguards human freedom." "In this very personal book, Charles Murray paints a vivid portrait of life in a genuinely free society. He explains why limited government would lead to greater individual fulfillment, more vital communities, and a richer culture. He shows why such a society would have stronger families, fewer poor people, and would care for the less fortunate far better than does the society we have now."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

I didn't really feel like this author had anything to really back up his claims. A lot of it did sound like a great idea if people would take part in the system. BUT!!!! Our current system would work if people would take part in it. Book had me bored and dragging my feet to the end.
