Americans are increasingly dismayed with a broken political system and the big institutions they blame for a Darwinian economy (in which it's getting harder to get ahead). What they've lost sight of is the importance of self-reliance and personal initiative in every individual's quest for prosperity. Liberty For All pushes past the usual go-nowhere policy prescriptions to probe what ordinary people can do to build their own self-reliance and enhance their odds of success. In a wry and entertaining narrative, Rick Newman embarks on a quest to improve his own self-reliance by camping with qdoomsday preppers, q deconstructing the qrugged individualistq that politicians so often invoke, and detailing the ways we unnecessarily shackle ourselves. The result is a guide to enriching your prospectsaand your lifeaby harnessing every freedom available.Doomsday Preppers (reality television series), 39, 42, 44, 111a15, 123 and first aid, 116 growth of, 40 Jason (New York City ...
