All around the world, people are coming up with their own ways to escape Leviathan's reach. No waiting for the right people to get elected, no plotting revolutions—they're getting out now and hastening the State's obsolescence. Jeffrey Tucker and Max Borders walk us through 50 ways people are going up, over, and around the walls right now. Borders also highlights the crucial work of catalysts—those who inspire others to try and find their own way to out-innovate the State (and create a culture around an ethos of exit). We also introduce illustrator L. J. Lane and his comic, "Of Mice and Mud." In this issue, he looks at the difficulty of knowing what to believe when the quick solution is so appealing but promises so little. Also, Lawrence Reed discusses the importance of free choice in medicine and Peter Boettke says the real subject of economics is the wonder contained in everyday things. Dive in. There's more.

Working for liberty sometimes means inspiring, pushing, and encouraging others to think about the world in new ways. It means catalyzing the process of innovation by channeling your enthusiasm and recombining ideas you know in your gut to be right.

Right now, decisions about medical treatments are made by bureaucrats far from the patients and physicians closest to the problems. This system costs lives, but satisfies FDA incentives. A new book lays out a way to fix this--now.

Would you support a system that allowed everyone to live under the system they prefer? Or is making everyone live under your favorite system what really matters?

Economics is full of research, theories, and statistics. But it's really about learning to see the wonder surrounding us, in mundane things we often take for granted.
