August’s Book: Tao Te Chi or The Universe Doesn’t Give a Flying Fuck About You

The Way.There are many different translations, but Shambhala is one of the best.Determined to be uplifting with this month’s PD Book Club pick, our staff eventually came down to a tie between Lao Tzu’s millenniums old Tao Teh Chi and Johnny Truant’s The Universe Doesn’t Give a Flying Fuck About You.

Sure, admittedly one sounds a heck of a lot more positive than the other, but being libertarians, we opted to give you guys the choice.

July’s Book: Popular Economics

Greece's midnight deadline passed last night for repaying $1.8 billion to the IMF, leaving many to start discussing a Greek Exit from the EU. At over $15, it’s a little pricey, but overall worth it, even in the Kindle version. With the country of Greece now accepting the role of bankruptcy pioneer, July looks like a great month to brush up on economics.

Popular Economics: What the Rolling Stones, Downton Abbey, and LeBron James Can Teach You about Economics by John Tamny lays out some basic economic truths that often get overlooked by the IMF.

June’s Book: Up From Slavery

Exactly.Up From Slavery.Well, with Al Sharpton gainfully employed and deployed to the streets of inner city America in order to kick off a long, hot summer of race riots, we felt that the PD Book Club needed an uplifting choice this month.

Hell, when the media and DOJ forces a narrative of race inequality down the public’s throats, it’s definitely the season to seek out a little perspective.

May’s Book: Dear Leader

This feels like the scene from Winnie the Pooh, where he’s stuck in Rabbit’s hole.You won’t be able to put this one down…and not because of some tyrannical government mandate.Last month, we looked at how people survived the Khmer Rouge, a genocidal force that felt all too close as it happened in the 1970’s.

Well, this time we’re reading about a tyrannical force that is even closer to us---as it’s actually happening right now.

Yes, depressing as ever, our PD Book Club pick is Dear Leader: North Korea's Senior Propagandist Exposes Shocking Truths Behind the Regime.

April’s Book: First They Killed My Father

Why wouldn't they again?Great title, but her father didn't die first.Starting on that April day in 1975, when the communist Khmer Rouge came to Phnom Penh, in First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers, Loung Ung recounts her journey as a young child through the Killing Fields of Cambodia and finally onward to the United States.

March’s Book: The Law

Bastiat.A great libertarian starting point.Even though Frederic Bastiat published The Law (the original French title being, La Loi) in 1850, a mere few months before he succumb to tuberculosis, the book still reads as if it were written today.
