The third in our series of publications building on the success of The Economics of Freedom and The Morality of Capitalism, After the Welfare State will explain the history and motivations of the modern welfare state, examine its current crisis, explain how it is used as an immoral tool of state control and subjection, and propose possible alternatives for providing mutual aid in a world after government imposed welfare programs have run their course.
The concise book will feature a collection of essays from a variety of authors and disciplines. The readings will show that this is not merely an American or European problem, but one faced by young people across the world.
“Young people today are being robbed. Of their rights. Of their freedom. Of their dignity. Of their futures. The culprits? My generation and our predecessors, who either created or failed to stop the world straddling engine of theft, degradation, manipulation, and social control we call the welfare state.”
