In this concise and ever-timely essay on how anarcho-capitalists should engage the modern state, Hans-Hermann Hoppe dissects the nature of the modern democratic state and then suggests strategies for enacting a bottom-up libertarian revolution in ideology and civil government.

Hoppe begins by examining the nature of the state as “a monopolist of defense and the
provision and enforcement of law and order.” Recent centuries have experienced almost non-stop and untrammeled growth in the size and scope of the state, and the trend only accelerated with the expansion of democratic states.

How can the libertarian fight back against this trend?

Hoppe offers a program for the libertarian revolution that consists of a few key tenets such as a tireless defense of private property and support for decentralization of all states.

Hoppe also outlines a highly pragmatic strategy of localism, self-sufficiency, passive resistance, and non-cooperation with central governments that can pave the way for a new libertarian society. Hoppe tells us that anarcho-capitalists should largely ignore the great debates at the center of major states, and instead concentrate on creating small-scale self-sufficient communities that can be in a position to assert a sort of informal independence from central government. Overt secession movements are impractical, so Hoppe suggests instead policies in which localized communities devoted to the true protection or private property can refuse to cooperate and assist central governments. Over time, and as the movement grows, the effective power of central states will decline to the point of becoming irrelevant.

First delivered as a speech in 1997, What Must be Done contains many of the themes and assertion later covered in more detail in Hoppe’s 2001 book Democracy: The God that Failed, while providing a number of insights into how libertarians can reach beyond the intellectual sphere to bring about a libertarian society.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This Tribalist Agrees 20. August 2013
Von RA Jameson - Veröffentlicht auf

As a tribalist, I found this book to be a great contribution to the discussion of how to put an ends to the top-down Leviathan and move to a more efficient bottom-up tribal/localist society. It is an easy read focusing on the value of private property and the subsequent struggle to defend private property. The monopolization of the defense of private property is where the Leviathan is born.

Professor Hoppe lays it out straight here, with reason and logic, backed by epistemological truth and fact. I was somewhat reminded of the works of Albert J Nock in the clarity of the writing.

3.0 von 5 Sternen How Libertarians think 22. März 2014
Von Jean in Wisconsin - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
I was encouraged by a fellow Ron Paul ex-campaign worker to learn more about Austro-economics. I chose this book because it seemed like a quick way to get to the heart of what the Mises Institute is all about. And I believe it is. It is short and succinct. It describes the biggest concern that LIbertairians see and how to solve it. It makes some good points about the problems of democracy and how easy it is for scum to rise to the top in the spirit of egalitarianism. That we are having serious government problems no one can deny. We really really need some major changes.
The major premise of this book is that the only thing that societies need provided is security and justice. Therefore, if governments were completely abandoned, from local to federal, and the rich and successful businessmen were put in charge, then we would all be better off.
The suggestion for accomplishing this is to let people individually choose who would be in charge of security. People would choose from the local corporate CEO's, who already have a lot to protect and so would be positioned to take on clients, or else insurance companies who specialize in protection. People could choose anyone though, and some would probably hire a king or a guy who already has an army.
For those who would administer justice, a logical choice would apparently be local corporate CEO's for judges. These judges would be picked from among those who are "reliable, prudent, honorable, and just," so we may have to look around a bit.
Only property owners would be able to vote in all matters related to taxes. Though why there are taxes when there is no government is not clear. I choose to understand that this is during the phase while the government is being dismantled. Anyway, the number of votes each property owner would have would depend on how much property he owns. So right off you might think that the country would be run by large corporate farmers. Or is it all based on the value that is put on the property? And what difference would that make? Anyway, this would have to be clarified.
I wonder if there is any account given to the years of opportunies the rich have had to accumulate wealth and to improve their lot at the expense of the common man. I suggest that we all start out with being allowed to keep what we can stuff into a big suitcase, excluding such things as money and gold. Then we would have a better shot at all having an equal opportunity to rise to the top. Though even this idea would need consideration, such as how do you account for a Harvard education? I am in favor of putting intelligent people in charge, even if some of them are rich, and would like to see this considered, rather than to assume that if you are rich and own a lot of property, then you are qualified to be in a position of authority.
There are so many questions left unanswered by this book that it boggles the mind. On the other hand, perhaps that is the point.
Anyway, I now see Libertarians as highly suspect. Maybe I will reseach further rather than judging based on one author, but more likely I will let it go. Sometimes I wonder if I see things in Ron Paul that no one else sees. His poster shall remain on my wall.
