Awesome!  Thank you for making it happen and LFB for making it possible!

When I read that book, I was amazed at how many of the arguments are still being played out today in Internet fora.  That they came up with answers to so many objections without the benefit of mass communications is really impressive.

Slightly off-topic, does anyone know for sure whether the Tannehills are still around?

I understand they are both deceased, but, I don't know who told me.  I think it was Richard Boddie, as, I know it was he who told me of  Robert LeFevre's death.  I knew Morey fairly well as he came and spent time with us in Hartford when he came to speak at Libertarian conventions in NYC and Philadelphia.  I don't know if my friends kept up with the Tannahills as we eventually went separate ways.

I'm on chapter 3 now.  Great read, Ian.  Thanks!

I love how you pronounce phrases in quotes.  Such disgust in your voice.  It's excellent! :)

PS.  Did you write the introduction?

I suspect you're right about Morris.  I did a search and found who I think is the same Linda Tannehill, teaching at a fishery in AK, or at least was as of '03.

Enjoying the book, Ian.  I didn't realize when you posted this that you had been the reader for the book.  Great job!

I have a quibble from Chapter 2...the Tannehills say pacifism and sacrifice are wrong.  But in nearly the same breath, they say that people should be able to chose any lifestyle they like, as long as they're not initiating force against others.  Pacifism and doing altruistic acts, as long as you're not forcing others to do them, are a legitimate choice, since they're not initiation of force.

I see the Tannehills were heavily influenced by Ayn Rand  :)

I noticed the same thing...I wouldn't have labeled sacrifice as 'wrong' but would have distinguished involuntary sacrifice as oxymoronic from voluntary.

I'm reading Gandhi right now, and my main quibble with him is his emphasis on faith and sacrifice as the highest ideals. While sacrifice is necessary to make a difference, I don't feel one has to be so absolute in their sacrifice. Also, with faith, surely it is the only way one is able to face death with a smile on their face, but belief without knowledge doesn't necessarily make them right.

The only other thing I would have altered in TMFL is the labeling of positive causes as 'pro-life'. They of course distinguish from the pro-life political faction, but I'm a believer that the ideology should focus more around self ownership than life itself. But that's kinda semantics, they mean the same thing as I would have even if I would have phrased it differently.

Also, many of my friends/family will be receiving the audiobook for Christmas this year.

Hum. I used to have an affiliate program with them a long time ago, and used to get there catalogs, and they went bankrupt. Somebody else must have bought the assets.

Bump.     

 Freedom without free markets is like a "wish sandwich".   - something the Blues Brothers never said

 Lloyd turned me onto it about 8 years ago.  It was an impactful book for me.
