owes its name to
Cato’s Letters
 ,
a series of essays published in 18thcentury Great Britain that presented a vision of a society free from thetyranny of excessive government power. Those same ideals inspired thearchitects of the American Revolution and continue to inspire thework of the Cato Institute today. The Cato Institute’s core mission isto advocate policies that preserve and expand individual sovereignty while decreasing the power of government to interfere with the livesand activities of peaceful individuals.Today many American political leaders, elected to be good stewardsof public monies and protectors of freedom, instead have endangeredthe very essence of America with policies that destroy liberty, stifle theeconomy, and waste billions of dollars.Cato’s work to restore the vision of our nation’s founders is moreimportant than ever. America’s founding generation created a new kind of nation, basedon individual sovereignty, limited government, free commerce, andpeace. In 2005 Cato continued to be a critical voice in the struggle toprotect and advance these values, putting forward timely and practicalpolicy proposals centered on our nation’s first principles.
