The ideas and policies that are percolating down from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and Capitol Hillâ€”increased government intervention, calls to â€śspread the wealth around,â€ť onerous regulations, and bailouts for allâ€”are not new. Weâ€™ve been down this road before. We know where it leads. It is that forlorn byway that Friedrich von Hayek called the Road to Serfdom.
The good news is we donâ€™t have to go down that road again. Resurrecting 18th-century style pamphleteering, Encounter Broadsides â„˘ provide the intellectual ammunition for the battle over Americaâ€™s future.Â From the folly of Obamacare, to the politicization of the Justice Department, or disastrous efforts to nationalize our education system, each Encounter Broadside â„˘ assaults a new tentacle of the rising statism. Now, for the first time, The New Leviathan collects these salvos in one essential handbook.
The New Leviathan includes Broadsides from John R. Bolton, Daniel DiSalvo, Richard A. Epstein, Peter Ferrara, John Fund, Victor Davis Hanson, Andrew C. McCarthy, Betsy McCaughey, Stephen Moore, Michael B. Mukasey, Glenn H. Reynolds, Rich Trzupek, Michael Walsh, and Kevin D. Williamson. Together, they make the definitive case for liberty and democratic capitalism at a time when they are under siege from the resurgence of collectivist sentiment.
