And WOW, coming from an AnCap perspective, all I could think of the whole time was the awful oppression of the Elephant! Even if he is insane, leave him be! Wow, it was so bad!

It also gave me the idea that children's books likely have a huge potential to introduce pro-liberty messages.

Horton voluntarily chose to save thousands of lives. No one forced him to. It was a noble action which displayed a great libertarian respect for life and indeed personal responsibility.

Neodoxy - I meant the Jungle animals oppressing him.

Justin Amash a while ago read some Dr. Seuss book to school kids in his district and used it to teach the kids the difference between democracy and freedom. I'm not on Facebook anymore, so I can't find his original post or what the book was :/ I'm pretty sure it happened this past Spring, though.
