Description  more details


Against the State: An Anarcho-Capitalist Manifesto diagnoses what is wrong with the American political system, and tells us in no uncertain terms what is required to stop leviathan. Rockwell's prescription is radical, calling for the wholesale realignment of society away from the state and toward voluntary order. As the book incontrovertibly shows, the overwhelming problems that confront us today are no accident. They stem from the nature of government itself. Only peaceful cooperation grounded in individuals, families, civil society, and markets can rescue us from our present plight.

Against the State applies Murray Rothbard’s unique combination of individualist anarchism and Austrian economics to contemporary America. Fueled by an out-of-control banking system, the American Über-State has become in essence fascist. We cannot escape our predicament through limited government or traditional political means: government is incapable of controlling itself. Only a purely private social order can save us, and Rockwell succinctly sets out how an anarcho-capitalist society would work. 

In 190 short pages, Rockwell has created nothing less than the modern manifesto for today's anarcho-capitalist movement. This is the must-read book of 2014 for libertarians interested in real arguments for creating a peaceful, voluntary, free-market society.

Against the State: An Anarcho-Capitalist Manifesto
I bought this book years ago at a Mises Institute event and even got it signed by the great Lew Rockwell himself. Lew starts the book by giving a libertarian analysis of the welfare-warfare state that the the United States has sadly become. The latter half of the book he explains how America has become a fascist state, why limited government doesn't work, and a brief explanation of anarcho-capitalism. This is a good book to give someone who is largely ignorant of libertarianism but the book is also a good refresher for those who already identify with the libertarian philosophy.
