A New E-Pamphlet: I, Light Bulb
A while back, I wrote about a new generation of e-pamphlets from the HarperCollins imprint Broadside Books, aiming to accomplish the same goals as pamphlets during the time before the Revolutionary War: to spread ideas, concepts, and information… notably conservative ideas, concepts, and information.
Broadside Books has just released their latest e-pamphlet, I, Light Bulb. They describe it thus:
New from Broadside Books’ Voices of the Tea Party. I, Light Bulb: A Death Row Testimonial as told to Michael Patrick Leahy, demonstrates how the American economy has gone from free markets to politically correct, government controlled crony capitalism in the half century since Leonard E. Read wrote the classic essay I, Pencil. Leahy tells the story of the ban on the current generation of incandescents from the perspective of a condemned 100 watt light bulb. In the voice of the light bulb, Leahy points out the need for political activism to reverse this ban, arguing that it not only prevents an innocent incandescent light bulb from continuing a useful economic life, it also deprives every American of their own economic liberty and freedom of choice.
It looks like it’s available on all the major e-book platforms, including–of course–Amazon’s Kindle format. If you don’t have a Kindle, iPad, Nook, or other e-reader, never fear, Amazon has Kindle apps for Android, iPhone, Blackberry, Windows Phone 7 and even PC (both Windows and Mac)
