The Adventures of Jonathan Gullible is a libertarian book written by Ken Schoolland, a libertarian and professor of economics. Although it is read by many adults, it is aimed at the young audience, hoping to show young people Schoolland's concerns about statist society in ways they can easily understand.

The preface of the book, "The Philosophy of Liberty", has been turned into a very popular short film, distributed on the internet in many formats, including flash animation,[1] video,[2] slideshow or text,[3] in around forty languages[4]

Plot[edit]

Jonathan is a boy, who lives in a small town. All the people in his village he considers boring, and often he dreams about going to adventure.

One day, when he is playing around in his boat, a storm takes him away to another land, where he starts to learn about the country's strange (and misguided) laws and regulations.
