The Nature of Man and His Government is an essay by American libertarian radio personality Robert LeFevre. The text lays out the author's argument for a purely free society, and made him a leading spokesman for the libertarian position on government and society in the 2nd half of the twentieth century. LeFevre argues that government is in its essence a violation of rights, one that makes life brutal, poor, and short. He demonstrates that no government anywhere has lived up to its basic promises, and calls on all people to contribute to building a new kind of freedom.
