Mark Davis at Strike the Root - recommends Equal Freedom, available as a Kindle download for $6. I got the preview on my iPhone. You can read it on-line by clicking on the book cover where it says "Click to look inside". He posits the possibility of "noncoercive government". I'm interested to see what he means by that.

“The civilization we have at present is seriously flawed and has what should be regarded as an unacceptably low probability of survival. While the cosmos does not provide a certainty of survival for life, even for life more intelligent than humanity, the probability of survival of our civilization and humanity itself can be greatly improved.”

“Full and equal freedom will come. Ethics and rationality will replace coercion and fraud as the dominant characteristics of civilization. Survival in this Universe demands the best that we can do, and that will happen only in a civilization of freedom.”
