Online Library

Dale, who's rather excited about von Humboldt, found the Online Library of Liberty, which is chocked full of interesting titles available for free download; top-rate philosophical education in the classics there. For example, William Godwin who is one of the first anarchist philosophers, and was father to Mary Shelley (of Frankenstein fame). His political arguments rest upon utilitarian ethics, and, even on those ethics, he's a better read than Bentham.
