9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Michael J. Gogulski on June 3, 2009
Format: Hardcover
Circulated as Xerox copies since its completion in 1986, An Agorist Primer: Counter-Economics, Total Freedom, and You has finally been given the distinction it roundly deserves by being released in proper book form.

Building on and expanding his radical libertarian theory -- called agorism -- Samuel Edward Konkin III continues the work begun in New Libertarian Manifesto and other writings by further mapping the field of agorist theory and practice. Said to have been the man who "out-Rothbarded" the great Murray himself, SEK3's agorism applies libertarian principle to economic and social life with merciless consistency, casting aside the compromising sins of "being realistic" -- a cop-out in support of the statist, exploitative and decidedly non-libertarian status quo.

The book contains concise and incisive explorations of economics, counter-economics, libertarianism and agorism, and is replete with practical information and applications of agorist theory to the real world as well as expositions of the theory itself. Konkin's erudition and his long practice of counter-economics make the volume both a joy to read, and essential reading for the progress of liberty in the world and in your very own life.

This book is a must read for anybody who considers themselves to be an anarchist or a libertarian; it is a detailed solution to the problem of fascism, corporatism, socialism, or statism (which ever word you prefer to describe the fraud and coercion used to enslave the general population). The revolution does not have to be violent; there is an agorist solution!

Format: Hardcover
A fair summary of anarchist, a.k.a. "agorist" political and social views, but doesn't go very far and won't likely persuade critical readers not already leaning in that direction.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are at all familiar with libertarian philosophy, and are looking for a more practical exposition of "how" to live a more free life, this book is not it. It is very short, and is really just an overview of some basic libertarian/agorist principles, including how a "minarchist" view differs from some mainstream libertarianism.

I am pretty sure that "agorism" can be summed up as follows:
1. Be self-employed in a rural place.
2. Only have other like-minded people as customers and/or suppliers.
3. Make sure that even then, they don't turn you in for federal, state,
or local tax-evasion.

Voila! you are living free as an agorist.
