Fearing Freedom: The Intellectual and Spiritual Challenge to Liberalism
By Peter J. Boettke
This article appeared in the Winter 2014 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

If classical liberals emphasized this benefit, they would help assuage the public’s fears about having to take on greater responsibilities if the welfare state were repealed.
