Stranger in a Strange Land was about libertarianism? I think you might mean The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, perhaps.



Jubal Harshaw seems to be a libertarian.

Also I need to hit him up for some pick-up advice.

SPOILER maybe

they both have a wise man (Prof/Jubal),

someone with ridiculous power to get them what they need (Mike PC and the Frenchman/Jubal and Mike Smith),

someone rallying to the cause (Wyoh/Ben)

and someone who is central to the cause but is initially reluctant (Manuel/Jill)

and it's a fight for rights of the powerless over the incumbent rulers. They both have a rebellious feel, though "Moon" is more blunt about its political statement (anti-war, small government).
