Leonard Reed wrote “Anything That’s Peaceful” in 1964. The underlying theme is all about the individual. When one is left to pursue life unfettered, unrestrained, totally responsible for self, then we will have true freedom and growth and, hence, economic stability.
“My thesis,” Leonard Read informs us in this remarkable book, “in simplest terms, is: Let anyone do anything he pleases, so long as it is peaceful; the role of government, then, is to keep the peace.” Just so. This book is a classic, compelling statement of the political philosophy of libertarianism and statement of the guiding principles of the Foundation for Economic Education.
