Hope you enjoy it

As much as I enjoyed Think on these Things after taking your recommendation a couple of years back.

What most impressed me about Paterson's book is the fact that a woman who grew up on the frontier with no money and no real education at the turn off the 20th Century (not sure it was very well received for the fair sex to be concerned with political philosophy back then) was able to produce a work of such complicated subject matter and profound thought that is accessible to an average reader nearly a century later. It might otherwise get lost on us that the ideas she presents were truly original to her (like when someone reads Shakespeare and complains that they've already heard this story 100 times), but incredibly the book is not without ideas that were new to me despite having read volumes of liberty/polisci literature.

Unlearning and self-teaching since 2008. Thanks, Dr. Paul!
