ON-Lion Letter
The ideas and policies that are percolating down from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and Capitol Hill -- increased government intervention, calls to "spread the wealth around," onerous regulations, and bailouts for all -- are not new.  We'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 don’t have to go down that road again.  Resurrecting 18th-century style pamphleteering, Encounter Broadsides provide the intellectual ammunition for the battle over America's future.  From the folly of Obamacare, to the politicization of the Justice Department, or disastrous efforts to nationalize our education system, each Encounter Broadside assaults a new tentacle of the rising statism.  Now, for the first time, Encounter Books' forthcoming The New Leviathan:  The State Versus the Individual in the 21st Century collects these salvos in one essential handbook.

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.

Encounter Books is an activity of Encounter for Culture and Education, a nonprofit group that is substantially supported by The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee.
