"Leonard Read called his book Talking to Myself. But the subtitle, which I overlooked at first, made it clear. He was talking to himself because “I am the only part of society I have been commissioned to save.” He recognized that “reforms” that do not originate in people’s individual commitments to liberty founder on the shoals of coercion, and that only by living lives that entirely avoid coercion is liberty completely understandable or possible."
