In Real Dissent, Tom Woods demolishes some of the toughest critics of libertarianism in his trademark way. In doing so he strays beyond what he calls the index card of allowable opinion, the narrow range within which the media and political classes permit debate to take place in America.
Should 40% or 35% of our income be taxed? That's the kind of debate the New York Times prefers. Should our income be taxed at all? Now that's out of bounds, citizen!
In foreign policy, Americans are permitted to choose between bombing a despised country or starving its people to death. You favor peace? Why, you must be an "extremist"!
On the Federal Reserve, the debate is over which policy the Fed should pursue. But what if the Fed is itself the problem? No answer, because the question isn't raised.
Real Dissent is organized into ten parts:
Part I: War and Propaganda
Part II: Capitalism and Anti-Capitalism
Part III: Libertarianism Attacked, and My Replies
Part IV: Ron Paul and Forbidden Truths
Part V: End the Fed
Part VI: History and Liberty
Part VII: When Libertarians Go Wrong [on people who don't quite get their own philosophy]
Part VIII: Books You May Have Missed
Part IX: Talking Liberty: Selected Tom Woods Show Interviews
Part X: Back to Basics
Afterword: How I Evaded the Gatekeepers of Approved Opinion
The index card of allowable opinion forces Americans into narrow and pointless debates, and closes off discussion of plausible and humane alternatives. For the sake of American liberty, it’s time we set that thing on fire.
This audiobook is a match.

Tom has a great voice.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. If you want an alternative to the mainstream Fox, MSNBC, New York Times, CNN status quo, Tom gives an excellent fact filled revisionist approach to current events through a Libertarian eye. I have already reviewed the Kindle version, see: Outstanding Material! Tom is the modern day Murray Rothbard! I will keep this related to audio related details only.
Have you listened to any of Thomas E. Woods Jr.’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I regularly listen to Tom's podcasts and his voice is excellent. Since he is reading his own material, he has great tone and inflection at the appropriate points. It's easy to listen to this book in audio format.
