Libertarianism : for and against by Craig Duncan ( Book )
6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Offers dueling perspectives on the scope of legitimate government. Tibor R. Machan, a well-known political philosopher with libertarian convictions, argues for a minimal government devoted solely to protecting individual rights to life, liberty, and property. Stressing the sovereignty of each individual, Machan argues in favor of limiting democracy's scope and against the redistribution of wealth, or any other sort of taxation. In opposition to libertarianism, philosopher Craig Duncan defends democratic liberalism, which aims to ensure that all citizens have fair access to a life of dignity. This requires measures to protect equality of opportunity, as well as measures to ensure all have access to a decent minimum standard of living. In a dynamic exchange of arguments, critiques, and rebuttals, the two philosophers cut to the heart of this important debate, articulating and defending competing conceptions of such core values as political freedom and equality.--Publisher description

Private rights and public illusions by Tibor R Machan ( Book )
8 editions published between 1994 and 2000 in English and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A serious confusion exists over government's proper role in society. Whatever is considered important has been presumed to be a "public" or government concern.

Many sincere and intelligent people answer in the negative and propose a broad scope for government, including the regulation of advertising, firearms ownership, drug use, teenage pregnancy, environment, health care, tobacco and alcohol consumption, AIDS research, employment, education, etc
