Do you believe in the freedom of individuals to determine their own futures and solve problems cooperatively?
Don't hurt people, and don't take their stuff. Simple and straightforward, that's liberty in a nutshell. And yet it seems that, more and more, the decisions CEOs and Washington bureaucrats make about what to do for us, or to us, or even against us, are having an increasingly adverse impact on our lives and freedoms. From Matt Kibbe, the influential leader of FreedomWorks, Don't Hurt People and Don't Take Their Stuff is the first true manifesto of a new libertarian grassroots movement, in which Kibbe clearly articulates the case for freer people, more voluntary cooperation, and solving problems from the bottom up.
The rules for liberty Don't hurt people: Free people just want to be left alone, not hassled or harmed by someone else's agenda or designs on their life and property. Don't take people's stuff: America's founders fought to ensure property rights and our individual right to the fruits of our labors. Take responsibility: Liberty means responsibility. Don't sit around waiting for someone else to solve your problems. Work for it: For every action there is an equal reaction. Work hard and you'll be rewarded. Mind your own business: Free people live and let live. Fight the power: Take a stand against corrupt authority.
