Looking Backward: 2162-2012
A View from a Future Libertarian Republic
What would a free nation actually look like?
Professor Julian West is all too aware of the problems facing the United States in 2012: poverty, endless wars and corporate corruption of democracy. He believes that government could fix these ills, if only government could do more.
But after a fluke accident, West awakens after 150 years of slumber in a new nation that has largely resolved these issues – but not through the government solutions he has yearned for.
Join the astonished and dubious West as he learns what caused the Decline and Fall of the former United States and how multiple new republics were formed out of the ashes of that failed state. West now inhabits the Free States of America, a nation of limited government, free markets and civil liberties, with freedom and prosperity for all who desire it.
This modern retelling of Edward Bellamy's 19th-century socialist utopian novel "Looking Backward: 2000-1887" is updated for the 21st century, based on what we know now about the failure of collectivism. It is an enjoyable and easy-to-understand introduction to the ideas of libertarianism and offers a hopeful, encouraging and ultimately credible view of what a free nation might look like.
