Here are a few of the books we suggest in order to help understand different paths to voluntaryism. We have either both read these books or either one of us has and recommend them to you!
Just like there are many different ways in mathematics to arrive at an answer, so to are there many different paths of thought and discovery which lead to Volutnaryism. So long as you are continually refining your ideology to improve its efficiency to utilize peace and reason over destruction and hostility then you are on the right path. Just remember to never give up seeking continual enlightenment. Sometimes it takes a lifetime to learn what another took five minutes as a five year old to learn and others it takes more than a generation for everyone else to catch us to us.
The key is to have the patience for yourself first so you can have the patience for everyone else later. Just remember that the only thing you can truly change without question is yourself, if you want to!
We hope you find this reading list helpful. Please share it with others and visit us at fb.com/PhilosophyofVoluntaryism to suggest more works which may help others discovery Voluntaryism.
