Book cover from Everyday Anarchy: The Freedom of Nowby Stefan Molyneux
Book › Paperback
It's hard to know whether a word can ever be rehabilitated - or whether the attempt should even be made. The word “anarchy” evokes images of dangerous mobs, spiky-haired youths hurling garbage cans through Starbucks windows, and the chaos of the war of all against all. However, the word “anarchy” simply means “without rulers” - and this state of affairs is something we desperately desire and defend in so many areas of our own lives. If a political ruler were to tell us who to marry,...
Book cover from Universally Preferable Behaviour: A Rational Proof of Secular Ethicsby Stefan Molyneux
Book › Paperback
For thousands of years, humanity has attempted to enforce ethics through supernatural and secular punishments; this rabid aggression has been both necessary and ridiculous. It has been necessary because a rational proof of secular ethics has never been achieved; it has been ridiculous because it is impossible to imagine any scientific or mathematical argument being advanced in such a hysterical and violent manner. “Ethics” has been one of the great government programs of history; since...
Book cover from Practical Anarchy: The Freedom of the Futureby Stefan Molyneux
Book › Paperback
Imagine a world without government – this thought exercise seems impossible for many, because the power and reach of state monopolies is so omnipresent in our lives.

Governments are extremely dangerous, responsible for...

Book cover from Against the Gods?: A Concise Guide to Atheism and Agnosticismby Stefan Molyneux
Book › Paperback
Between the poles of strong atheism and strict theism lies agnosticism, the argument that gods are very unlikely, but cannot logically be ruled out as utterly impossible. Agnosticism is considered a cautious, tentative and scientific approach to the question of the existence of gods - Stefan Molyneux's seminal book "Against the Gods?" makes a powerful case against agnosticism and for the positive acceptance of the nonexistence of supernatural beings. It is not rational to even entertain the...
