All across the world individuals have learned that only by interacting peacefully can we achieve a more harmonious, prosperous, healthy and tolerant society. To these ends millions have optimistically involved themselves in a global liberty movement.
These libertarians, while seeing the promotion of individual rights a worthwhile goal in itself, also believe that a free society is a universally beneficial one. Consider the stories of the diverse contributors who share with you the reasons that they were convinced to embrace freedom and the idea that men and women should govern themselves. These contributors are from many corners of the world and from different walks of life. You will find their personal experiences mind-opening, illustrative, and entertaining.
In this collaboration you will find the personal journeys of fifty five individuals from fifteen countries.
