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.

Just Sayin’: Banning Any Book is Fascist

Don’t fear the pages, fear the tyranny.Though Germany banned any reprints in German, they were unable to stop other language versions throughout the rest of the world.Here at PD, we’re not believers in bans. As an organization we are all about more speech, more information, more opinion---not less.

So while some are now up in arms about the news that in late 2015 Germany is lifting the print ban on Mein Kampf (a book that during the 1930’s was once a staple wedding gift), we think that the ban should have never been done in the first place.

February’s Book: The Moaning of Life

A real life lesson.He might have a head like an orange, but there’s a lot of knowledge in that orange.Since February is a short month, our staff decided to keep our pick light-hearted with Karl Pilkington’s The Moaning of Life.

Hey, if you’re mad and don’t think it is nearly libertarian enough, don’t worry we will be back next month with Bastiat.

January’s Book: BloodLine

History on repeat?Wanna feel better? Compare yourself with John Turnipseed. The name John Turnipseed might not mean much to you, but it’s utterance on any Minneapolis street back in the 70’s and 80’s would cause more people to quake with fear than repeating Candyman three times.

We picked John Turnipseed’s 2014 BloodLine: You Spend Enough Time in Hell and You Get the Feeling You Belong to be our PD Book Club Pick for January for a number of reasons.

December’s Book: God's Double Agent

The true meaning of Christmas?Faith, at a high price.Since Obama Claus and Papa Noel Maduro are chomping at the bit for the holiday season to start, our staff thought that it would be best to look at what religious freedom really means, and how in the rush to stuff half-price gifts under the tree, that freedom is often taken for granted.
