"A true liberal is one who is fearful of concentrated power."
That's from Milton Friedman's Capitalism and Freedom, which is my first online purchase, from FirstAndSecond.com.
What happens when you take decentralisation of power to its logical extreme? Individuals have power over themselves only and over no one else - a.k.a. libertarianism.
[I'll have more to say about the book, hopefully. And sorry for not blogging all this time, it has always been a fits-and-starts thing for me.]
