"I want to live freedom," says legendary author and libertarian activist Wendy McElroy, "I don't want to just rail against the government.
McElroy's latest book is The Art of Being Free: Politics Versus the Everyman and Woman. In an interview with Nick Gillespie from last summer's FreedomFest, McElroy stresses the need for libertarians to work against the rise of the state in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. But she also argues that, like Henry David Thoreau, individuals should get on with the business of living."
McElroy blogs regularly at Laissez Faire Books' group blog. Check that out here and her personal website here.
Held each July in Las Vegas, FreedomFest is attended by around 2,000 limited-government enthusiasts and libertarians a year. Reason TV spoke with over two dozen speakers and attendees and will be releasing interviews over the coming weeks. For an ever-growing playlist, go here now.
