WHEN IN THE COURSE OF FUTURE EVENTS ...

Liberty is a recurring theme in science fiction. Here's a volume of explorations of this theme, some even arguing that freedom can be best served by doing away with government entirely. As Thomas Jefferson wrote, "Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty." And in the future, eternal vigilance against our own government will be even more important than vigilance against hostile outsiders.

A stellar roster of science fiction writers consider how a government-free society could operate, how the Soviet Union might have fallen apart even earlier because of an apparently harmless device, how a low-tech society might throw off the influence of more ""advanced"" intruders, how the right to own weapons is fundamental to freedom, and much more.

In the future, liberty may be even more threatened than in our present—and this volume suggests very unusual ways of defending it....
