Publisher's Summary

Don't Hurt People and Don't Take Their Stuff is a rational yet passionate argument that defends the principles upon which America was founded - principles shared by citizens across the political spectrum. The Constitution grants each American the right to self-determination, to be protected from others whose actions are destructive to their lives and property. Yet as Matt Kibbe shows, the political and corporate establishment consolidates its power by infringing upon our independence - from taxes to regulations to spying - ultimately eroding the ideals, codified in law, that have made the United States unique in history. Kibbe offers a surefire plan for reclaiming our inalienable rights and regaining control of our lives, grounded in six simple rules: don't hurt people, don't take people's stuff, take responsibility, work for it, mind your own business, and fight the power.

Not for Libertarians...

This is a good book for those that are frustrated with the GOP and want another avenue to explore. However it is not for the hardcore Libertarian.

Entry Level Liberty

Kibbe references Ayn Rand, Ludwig Von Mises and Hayek throughout the book, which is refreshing considering he's only a "little L" libertarian. The book is good entry level stuff for anyone growing into Libertarianism. Of course you could just skip this book and "little L" libertarianism all together and read Rothbard instead.

To Matt Kibbe, taxation is theft even if it's Rand Paul or Ted Cruz doing the taxing. You should follow your book's title to its ultimate conclusion.

Good Primer

If someone wants to know why the Liberty movement is something they should be involved in and what it all means, start them with this book. It'll give them a great foundation.

Simple concept

Such a simple idea & concept to live our lives without the burden of an over bearing government. Mentioned things about Obamacare that I didn't know. I think Kibbe gives too much credit to Cruz, but credit where credit is due. Great book for understanding what libertarians believe.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Matt Kibbe

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It's not necessary to listen to in one sitting. I just happened to be a captive audience due to a long drive over a holiday weekend.

Any additional comments?

I liked Matt Kibbe's personal story and what he links to his philosophy. He boils down Austrian economics in a simple form. If you're a libertarian with a small "L" you'll like this, if you're a constitutional conservative, you'll like this. If your an establishment member or a member of the progressive group think-you'll hate it. <br/><br/>Finally the book leaves up with a positive outlook for the future.

Very solid details about Libertarianism!!

This is a wonderful step towards fellowship of libertarianism and like minded groups to continue building this movement on capital hill!!
