Three Books, One Island: Aeon J. Skoble

JANUARY 10, 2013 by AEON SKOBLE

Remember the old thought experiment? "If you were starting over on an island and you had one book, what would it be?" With this new feature, we'll let really interesting people play the game. In our version, however, we'll let the author discuss three books: one recent book, one timeless book, and one book that challenges his or her world view.

April 2014

Around the world, people are struggling to throw off authoritarianism, with deeply mixed results. From Egypt to Venezuela, determined people build networks to overthrow their regimes, but as yet we have not learned to live without Leviathan. In this issue, Michael Malice and Gary Dudney discuss their glimpses inside totalitarian regimes, while Sarah Skwire and Michael Nolan look at how totalitarian regimes grind down the individual--and how individuals fight back. Plus, Jeffrey Tucker identifies a strain in libertarianism that, left unchecked, could reduce even our vibrant movement to something that is analogous to the grim aesthetic of architectural brutalism. The struggle for our lives and freedom is a struggle for beauty; it begins inside each of us.
