The Adventures of Jonathan Gullible
The Adventures of Jonathan Gullible is a libertarian book written by Ken Schoolland, a libertarian and professor of economics.

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, video, slideshow or text, in around forty languages
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.
