The right to earn a living: https://www.amazon.com/Right-Earn-Living-Economic-Freedom/dp...

and the concept of the political: https://www.press.uchicago.edu/ucp/books/book/chicago/C/bo54...

I used to think of laws and society as just arbitrary things. However, I now see that they reflect thousands of years of wisdom / improvement and are critical to creating the conditions for people to flourish. The right to earn a living helped me understand the common law system and why we should care about unenumerated rights and how to create a more just society.

The concept of the political helped me see how nihilistic egalitarianism and feckless bureaucracy isn't a bug but a feature of liberal democracy and how it doesn't have to be that way.
