Today’s book recommendation is by @MaryRuwart . This was an important book in my development. Before I read it, I viewed libertarianism as primarily about economics. Ruwart’s book helped me see how important empathy is in a libertarian worldview. It also connects the importance of personal development in building a free society. I’m an ENFJ and an emotional-first thinker. I never connected well with the cold numbers-based libertarian 101 texts, so this book would be great for new libertarians or curious Democrats.
Through its win-win approach, “Healing Our World” illustrates how the rules of social interaction most of us learned as children hold the secret to universal harmony and abundance. Step-by-step, Dr. Ruwart shows us how the Good Neighbor Policy or the “non-aggression principle” enriches the poor, protects the environment, deters crime, and defuses terrorism. Rather than a book on theory, “Healing” cites over 1,000 published studies illustrating how the principles of liberty have worked in the toughest testing ground of all—the real world—to make us all better off.
