Surveys show that the percentage of Americans with libertarian leanings—preferring to maximize individual rights and minimize the role of government—has grown by a third in the past decade.

Libertarianism has deep roots in Western civilization and in American history, and Cato Institute Executive Vice President David Boaz has written the definitive guide. In a discussion of The Libertarian Mind: A Manifesto for Freedom, an updated version of his classic Libertarianism: A Primer, he examines a movement that has gained momentum in the wake of long wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, chronic budget deficits, the costly war on drugs, expansion of executive-branch power, and revelations about National Security Agency abuses.
