Once concede the power of the people to consent as well as the natural law of “equal freedom from subjection,” and the logical consequence must be anarchism.

… it must be recognized that there are no just national boundaries per se; that real justice can only be founded on the property rights of individuals. …National boundaries are only just insofar as they are based on voluntary consent and the property rights of their members or citizens.

Once admit any right of secession whatever, and there is no logical stopping-point short of the right of individual secession, which logically entails anarchism, since then individuals may secede and patronize their own defense agencies, and the State has crumbled.

Libertarianism A to Z. Jeffrey Miron and Keith Knight.

… my basic motivation for being a libertarian had never been economic but moral. … While I was convinced that the free market was more efficient and would bring about a far more prosperous world than statism, my major concern was moral: the insight that coercion and aggression of one man over another was criminal and iniquitous, and must be combatted and abolished.

 

Murray N. Rothbard 
Betrayal of the American Right, pp. 73–74

Jeffrey Miron is a Senior Lecturer and Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of Economics at Harvard University, as well as Director of Economics Studies at the Cato Institute. His field of expertise is the economics of libertarianism; he has advocated for many libertarian policies, including legalizing all drugs and allowing failing banks to go bankrupt.

… a land without a settled government, whether criminally anarchic or anarcho-capitalist, is almost impossible for an external power to occupy and govern. For there is no political infrastructure, no settled government to whom the occupying imperial power can transmit orders.

Arguing With Zombies by Paul Krugman – Book Summary and Analysis. Bob Murphy and Keith Knight

… Keynes ignored the various stages of production; ignored changes in capital value and neglected the identity between entrepreneurs and capitalists; took replacement of the capital structure for granted; neglected price differentials in the stages of production as the source of interest; and did not realize that, ultimately, the question faced by businessmen is not whether to invest in consumer goods or capital goods, but whether to invest in capital goods that will yield consumer goods at a nearer or later date.

Lysander Spooner (1808–1887) is the American individualist anarchist and legal theorist known mainly for setting up a commercial post office in competition with the government and thereby being shut down. But he was also the author of some of the most radical political and economic writings of the 19th century, and continues to have a huge influence on libertarian thinkers today. He was a dedicated opponent of slavery in all its forms — even advocating guerrilla war to stop it — but also a dedicated opponent of the federal invasion of the South and its postwar reconstruction.

The Libertarian View: Police – The Problem and Solution. Rothbard and Brennan

The Libertarian View: Police – The Problem and Solution. Rothbard and Brennan

In short, the problem with police is they are

(a) coercively funded, any organization who’s ‘customers’ can’t opt out will get worse service than they otherwise would;

(b) a monopoly, one cannot start up a competing police agency with the state, and

(c) they claim the ‘special immunity’ of having the right to forcibly tell others what to do because politicians told them to- they can kidnap people for disobeying the laws written by government officials widely accepted to be corrupt and dishonest.

This along does not account for why the coercively funded American police are so much more likely to commit act of brutality, compared to the coercively funded monopoly Italian police. All we are trying to do here is form a foundation that is morally justified and is most likely to protect persons and property from aggressors.

Libertarian Party Presidential Nominee Explains Her Platform – Dr. Jo Jorgensen and Keith Knight

… you cannot roll back or whittle away statism — whether it be the government’s inflation, its budget, or its numerous depredations and controls on the economy — by getting a few “good guys” in there to speak Truth to Mr. President. … In the case of the State, the only thing that will roll back State power in any and all areas is the growth of a mass movement from below, i.e., among the public outside of and subjected to State power. Only a mass movement from below and outside: either by individual or organized actions, by ad hoc organizations, or by a Libertarian Party, or by all together, can hope to exert the pressure necessary to roll back the State.

Pearl Harbor – The Truth Finally Revealed

Pearl Harbor – The Truth Finally Revealed

In very few cases have these anti-interventionists favored literal “isolation”: what they have generally favored is political nonintervention in the affairs of other countries, coupled with economic and cultural internationalism in the sense of peaceful freedom of trade, investment, and interchange between the citizens of all countries. And this is the essence of the libertarian position as well.

Murray N. Rothbard, For a New Liberty, p. 330

 

… interventionism is not only immoral and aggressive; it doesn’t work. We must regain liberty at home, end all interventions in other countries, and return to the historic, forgotten “foreign policy” of serving as an example and a beacon-light of liberty to the rest of the
suffering and strife-torn world.

The Principled Solution to Police Brutality

The Principled Solution to Police Brutality

Police may use such coercive methods provided that the suspect turns out to be guilty, and provided that the police are treated as themselves criminal if the suspect is not proven guilty … in all cases, police must be treated in precisely the same way as anyone else … police, in a libertarian society, must take their chances like anyone else; if they commit an act of invasion against someone, that someone had better turn out to deserve it, otherwise they are the criminals. As a corollary, police can never be allowed to commit an invasion that is worse than, or that is more than proportionate to, the crime under investigation.

Murray N. Rothbard, Ethics of Liberty, pp. 82–83

 

The policeman who apprehends a criminal and arrests him, and
the judicial and penal authorities who incarcerate him before trial
and conviction — all should be subject to the universal law. In
short, if they have committed an error and the defendant turns
out to be innocent, then these authorities should be subjected to
the same penalties as anyone else who kidnaps and incarcerates an
innocent man.

Murray N. Rothbard, For a New Liberty, p. 109

 

Governmental police have not only no incentive to be efficient or worry about their “customers’” needs; they also live with the ever present temptation to wield their power of force in a brutal and coercive manner.

Murray N. Rothbard, For a New Liberty, p. 250

1. Voluntarism. Allow people to opt out of funding police departments- no PD or LEO has the right to collect money by force, like all citizens they must hereby only get what they can voluntarily (advertising, crowdfunding, contracts, Go Fund Me, fundraisers, subscriptions, lotteries, etc)

2. Equality. Hold police officers to the same standard you would any other person or group of persons. They have the right to investigate, defend the innocent, use force to stop aggressors, etc- however these are rights everyone else has, the job of the officer would be to SPECIALIZE in how to keep the peace and stop people from being defrauded or aggressed against.
