David Hume was no hardcore libertarian, but he was a provocative thinker and a key figure in the development of liberalism. Hume helped make the Scottish Enlightenment the important period it was. He also can be fun to read, as in his essay "Of the Independency of Parliament," where he writes about the political maxim that "every man ought to be supposed a knave" when it comes to political power. Hume embraces the views of thinkers we may regard as the progenitors of the Public Choice school and, writes Sheldon Richman, it can be applied to thinking about foreign policy.
