No one has mentioned Starship Troopers, which to my mind is his best early work. It is certainly his most didactic work, and sets forth very clearly what would appear to be his personal philosophy.

One of the first Sci Fi books I read was The Green Hills of Earth, which is a compilation of a number of the "future history" stories. I then actively sought his work and quickly found Starship Troopers. Have to confess that it made a lot of sense to me, and I wound up adopting aspects of the philosophy set forth there for my own.
