I Own Myself

A Children's Guide to Self-Ownership and Voluntaryism

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” Thomas Jefferson, The Declaration of Independence

Written in the summer of 1776, Thomas Jefferson’s words laid the foundation of individual liberty. The ability of each individual to live his or her own life, without interference, is the most fundamental right that we possess. Every person has the right to be free from force, aggression, fraud, and coercion.

How are we able to accomplish this in a diverse society? Through Self-Ownership and Voluntaryism! Together, these principles provide a framework of mutual respect, consent, and understanding.

Through colorfully illustrated examples, focusing on the Golden Rule and personal autonomy, I Own Myself provides a foundation of knowledge to help every individual live a peaceful and prosperous life.


"No people can be free and prosperous in the future if the bedrock, fundamental principles of freedom and prosperity are not taught to their children today. Rory Margraf's I Own Myself gives parents and teachers a superb tool for doing just that, and youngsters will love it!" – Lawrence W. Reed, President Emeritus, Foundation for Economic Education

My Very Own Constitution

The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America

In the summer of 1776, representatives of the thirteen colonies gathered in Philadelphia. They declared to the world that they were no longer subjects of King George III and the British Empire, but a free and independent people. However, the Declaration of Independence did not merely formalize the separation of the colonies from Great Britain; it is a statement of human liberty, equality, and dignity. Following the Revolution, the Founders were faced with establishing a government that embodied the virtues of the Declaration of Independence. In September of 1787, after months of deliberation, the Constitution of the United States was signed.

Rather than creating a government of unyielding authority, like the British government that they had just rejected, our Founders sought to form a government whose authority and power is constrained by the individual rights of the people. Not a government of limitless power, but one limited to the purpose of protecting the individual rights of all people. As such, it remains the duty of each individual to be educated in matters of government and law.

By learning our most fundamental laws, we can take a more significant part in our communities and our nation. We become better prepared to stand up for the rights and dignity of ourselves, our families, our neighbors and friends, and even strangers whom we may never meet. An excellent companion to the I Know My Rights children series, this delightfully illustrated pocket edition of the Declaration and Constitution will serve as a constant reminder of our rights and as a resource of knowledge for years to come!

Stille Nacht (Silent Night)

The Story of the Christmas Truce

"...that the guns may fall silent

 at least upon the night the angels sang."

In the Winter of 1914, the fighting along the Western Front had reached an impasse in the first year of the First World War. Thousands of soldiers filled the trenches, which stretched for hundreds of miles. As the fighting intensified, calls for peace rang out around the world and at home. As the holiday approached, a Christmas Truce was called for by many, but the warring nations dismissed it, choosing to continue the fight.

But on Christmas Day in 1914, a curious thing happened. Soldiers began to lay down their weapons and met their enemy in No Man's Land. They did not meet in combat, but in peace and friendship. Together, they sang songs, exchanged gifts, and even played soccer while they celebrated Christmas together.

Commanded to be enemies, the soldiers on the Western Front found humanity on the battlefield. In defiance of orders, those on the battlefield did not see enemies, but brothers. The Christmas Truce never happened again, but the fields once called No Man's Land will forever hold a moment of peace in its soil.
