 Uncivil Liberties: Deconstructing Libertarianism


A Praxis Peace Institute book
Uncivil Liberties: Deconstructing Libertarianism


  Taking on the tenets of libertarianism and ideas associated with libertarianism, the authors challenge the American myths that promote rugged individualism, the lone hero, endless economic growth, and American exceptionalism. They explore the role that ideologies play in helping us make sense of the world and revisit the experiment --- still unproved --- of American democracy.

  The six authors place the myths in historical and ideological contexts and explore the makings of civil society, social justice, and economic fairness. One author, who was a libertarian in his youth, deconstructs their philosophy using only their definitions and arguments in a brilliant deconstruction.

Citing successful alternatives to laissez-faire and corporate capitalism, the authors promote existing models that celebrate the dignity of humankind by promoting empathy, cooperation, and respect. This book not only deconstructs, it constructs a possible world using concrete examples that have a proven success rate and high levels of human happiness.
This book is a must-read for anyone invested in modern politics and the future of the United States.
