Before I read this book, I was very much a Conservative. Now, that I have read this book, I have come to question my beliefs about what the criminal justice system should be enforcing and what it should leave alone. I am now no longer a left-leaning Conservative, but a Libertarian. This book lays out issue-by-issue what the problems with victimless crimes are and the hypocrisies behind these laws. This is a book that may not change all minds, but it will certainly open many.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

As Internet pornography, and other online sexual activities are now the leading factor in divorce, perhaps we as a society need to have a responsible dialogue on the topic which includes the issues surrounding pornography and some of it's now completely verifiable adverse effects, such as sexual addiction. No one is talking about taking anyone's porn away, but in order to 'drink' responsibly one should be aware that there can be adverse reactions. For some reason, sexual addiction is something that never seems to get mentioned. Prostitution, another supposed victimless crime is another one that has destroyed many a maarriage, and even passed on such lovely diseases as HPV, or even HIV. Prostitution is sex by coersion, and money is the coersive factor. Ask a married woman how she feels after finding a charge to a massage parlour on the joint credit card and she'll tell you this is no victimless crime. It's a painful, devastating, and hurtful one. When does excercising one's rigthts, infringe upon, or violate the rights of another? What about freedom FROM speech?

This book exposes the need of this country to get back to the principles of personal liberty that our founding fathers went to war for, and attempted to secure with the original constitution. It shows how the separation of church and state has been greatly weekend and often discarded. THIS BOOK WILL MAKE YOU RETHINK MANY OF OUR NATIONS LAWS.Was this review helpful?

I must say that this book is by far and away the best book on theories of true freedom. 'Ain't Nobody's Business If You Do' could be the text book that our law-makers should read to learn what this country should be about. The ideas outlined in this excellent work are the basis for any truly successful society.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Did you know that marijuana was originally made illegal to appease certain corporate interests rather than to 'protect our children'? Did you know that perfectly-legal nicotine contributes to more deaths each year than ALL illegal drug deaths combined multiplied by 100? Did you know that, on average, a non-violent offender convicted of a consensual 'crime' is given a much harsher sentence than someone convicted of murder? And did you know that the United States incarcerates more non-violent offenders for consensual 'crimes' than any other nation on the planet? Is it any wonder that the US didn't even make the top ten when the United Nations recently compiled a list of the world's most free countries? If all of this sounds rather shocking, you'll be even more astounded (and probably outraged) if you read this book. If I could, I would give it 20 stars on a scale of 1 to 5. It is not just well-written and an excellent read, but it just might help to open up America's eyes to a painful fact if enough people read it. The painful fact is that we are slowly but surely losing our freedom in the name of the government protecting us from ourselves. Read this book as soon as possible while you still can...if things keep up this way, the day may come when this publication will be outlawed. Trust me, you won't find that idea so far-fetched after reading this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
