Teaching Freedom the Bastiat Way

Richard Anderson at Ricochet
"The biggest mistake I see parents making is dumping great, big lumps of book onto unsuspecting students. It must be a terrifying experience. So here is a young person of 16 or 17 being confronted with Milton Friedman, Ayn Rand, and Ludwig von Mises. While these authors were capable of brevity and wit, their preferred method was long and thorough. A hardcover copy of Atlas Shrugged is thick enough to subdue most woodland creatures. It may not be quite as successful with teenagers."
