Sintesi dell'editore

In 1927, classical liberalism, based on a belief in individualism, reason, capitalism, and free trade, was dying, when one of the 20th century's greatest social thinkers wrote this combative and convincing restatement. Nowhere are the key principles of Mises' philosophy better represented than in this timeless work.

Mises was a careful and logical theoretician who believed that ideas rule the world, and this especially comes to light in Liberalism.

"The ultimate outcome of the struggle" between liberalism and totalitarianism, say Mises, "will not be decided by arms, but by ideas. It is ideas that group men into fighting factions, that press the weapons into their hands, and that determine against whom and for whom the weapons shall be used. It is they alone, and not arms, that, in the last analysis, turn the scales."

Excellent! Need I say more?

What made the experience of listening to Liberalism the most enjoyable?

This book explains what real Classical Liberalism is, not the current Liberalism known to the North Americans who hijacked the term and made it mean exactly the opposite of what it is supposed to be! Here you here it from the best Libertarian Austrian Economist of them all!

Classical Liberalism Explained

Ludwig Von Mises does a thorough job of explaining classical liberalism in this book. I must admit that its characteristics are in American society, largely nonexistent. Special interests have massively co-opted nearly all of our institutions (both private and public). Nevertheless, we must be prepared to give an answer to those who are, or will be disillusioned by the current state of affairs. To that end, this book is very helpful!

Classical Liberalism Defined

The meaning of the modem use of the term "liberal" is in direct opposition to that of it's origin. True liberalism is the advocation for maximum liberty. Mises argues that there were no better terms to describe this philosophy and that there were no political parties that truly favored liberalism. The label "libertarian" best fulfills this purpose and despite it's many current shortcomings, the Libertarian Party is meant to be that political institution. I believe the terms "liberal" and "liberalism" may be forever lost, but the ideas will continue on. This book does an excellent job at explaining these ideas and extolling their righteous virtue!

True Liberalism

The term “Liberal” has been subsequently perverted & subjugated by today’s Leftists going back to the early 1950s. In 1927 Von Mises mapped out what true Liberalism is in view of the 18th-19th centuries when the term was birthed and stood for non government intervention in the economy and non government interference in the lives of individuals. Today’s true Liberals - Classical Liberals - need to reclaim the “Liberal” moniker.

Great (except chapters misaligned)

Content and narration were excellent, but chapters don't match up between text and in Audible.

Must read for all 'liberals '

it's the kind of book everyone must read. For liberals it's necessary to read and understand to regain the understanding of a liberal world. Today's modern liberal has abandoned Liberty for poverty and enslavement.
