The book features essays by John Tierney, Lisa Conyers, Jeffrey Miron, and several more that delve into the relationship between freedom and responsibility, their philosophical and scientific underpinnings, and the practical value of self-control.
“Each of us faces a great choice,” Palmer writes in the first chapter. “Shall I quietly accept the system of state control or shall I stand up for self-control? Self-control offers a life of freedom and responsibility. It enables us to realize our dignity in peace and harmony with others. It is a life worthy of a human being.”
Here’s what a few people you may recognize had to say about the book:
“This important book is in the tradition of Adam Smith’s Theory of Moral Sentiments in which self-control is necessary in the service of decentralized processes of human socio-economic betterment. State control can never substitute for self-control without destroying freedom and all that is human in both society and economy.” – Vernon L. Smith, 2002 Nobel Laureate in Economics
“Life is full of difficult choices. It requires courage to take responsibility for your own life and carve your own path. However, that’s also the best way to ensure a successful future and a prosperous, healthy society. If I were a young person pursuing a productive and rewarding life, I’d buy a copy of this book and study it carefully.” – John Mackey, Co-Founder and Co-CEO, Whole Foods Market
