A Dinosaur's Guide to LibertarianismAuthor: Godfrey Bloom
A book that lays bare the failings of the British political establishmenet and sysem, penned by a famously robust critic of the European Union and its politically correct tyranny.
I have been called ďa dinosaurĒ more times than I can remember - usually by some politically correct policy wonk who canít be bothered to debate the issues and prefers to insult his opponents. Nothing wrong with dinosaurs. They dominated Earth for over 120 million years. Political correctness has managed 15 years so far.
Classical liberalism and libertarianism is the only possible salvation for mankind, it looks to the future not the past.
This book is about why we are governed or why we are governed in the hopelessly inefficient, corrupt and incompetent way we are. It contains more questions than answers yet I make no apology for that. I believe in the English speaking world in the last hundred years we have stopped asking appropriate questions, without which we can never find answers, right or wrong.
