Who should determine the course of our lives? There is no shortage of people who aim to control others, imposing their will and restricting choice through the force of government.
A new book edited by the Atlas Network's Dr. Tom G. Palmer, Self-Control or State Control? explains how choosing personal responsibility allows us to regain control over our own lives.
Titled Self-Control or State Control? You Decide, the book features essays by John Tierney, Lisa Conyers, Jeffrey Miron, and several more that delve into the relationship between freedom and responsibility, their philosophical and scientific underpinnings, and the practical value of self-control.
“Each of us faces a great choice,” Palmer writes in the first chapter. “Shall I quietly accept the system of state control or shall I stand up for self-control?”
