Description 

In this tour de force essay, Hans-Hermann Hoppe turns the standard account of historical governmental progress on its head. While the state is an evil in all its forms, monarchy is, in many ways, far less pernicious than democracy. Hoppe shows the evolution of government away from aristocracy, through monarchy, and toward the corruption and irresponsibility of democracy- a long march toward today's leviathan state. There is hope for liberty, but reversing the tide will not be easy. Radical decentralization and secession, Hoppe posits, are the last best way forward. This eye-opening monograph is ideal for sharing with friends. It will revolutionize the way you view society and the state.
