Its a very good read. However, this country seems to be going the opposite way and seems to be in a hurry to get there.
There are many Americans who are mystified by the current path of decline upon which this country seems to be heading. Mr. Phillips, with the thoroughness of a super sleuth, examines both historical and present day evidence, and ultimately indentifies the culprit.
I love your book, Brian. Thanks.
Just finished IRGW. A great arsenal of intellectual ammo for the advocate of Capitalism. I am going to re-read it now.
I have nearly made it all the way through your book and I believe I am entirely justified in describing the experience as “mind-blowing” – in all the best possible ways!
…your book has radically expanded my understanding of the practical application of the concept of “individual rights”.
In his book, Individual Rights and Government Wrongs, Brian Phillips has contributed a much needed corrective to the debate over capitalism today. Phillips adeptly drills below the froth of contemporary debate that blames the market for our problems to investigate and explain how the free market has actually worked in the past. Rich in historical examples, the book illuminates the diverse ways in which free individuals can solve social problems without government intervention. Phillips also does well to integrate these examples within a theoretical framework that justifies and explains the moral case for freedom.

Brian Phillips takes the fundamental principles of our Founding Fathers, which made America great, and interprets them in light of a modern industrial society. Well worth reading.

Are you appalled by the increasing intrusion of government in to every area of our lives? Brian Phillips’ remarkable book, Individual Rights and Government Wrongs, articulates how and why this menace spread. He examines a broad range of areas where the government is inappropriately and ineffectively engaged in activities that should be the province of private individuals and businesses, and provides many eye-opening examples that demonstrate just how the areas have been successfully addressed without government. Through these examples Phillips provides repeated evidence for the essential role of individual rights.
