Do you have questions about the libertarian philosophy? Do you want to explain it to family and friends in a short but compelling way? Do you want examples of how liberty works in the real world rather than just ivory-tower theory? In Short Answers to the Tough Questions, Dr. Ruwart has compiled hundreds of questions and her short, succinct answers from her 15 year web column with The Advocates for Self-Government. Short Answers is a great resource for libertarians, candidates, and those who are exploring what libertarianism is all about. Dr. Ruwart s award-winning book, Healing Our World, also available at, makes a great compliment to Short Answers. See more from Dr. Ruwart at!
