Social Cooperation vs. Parasitic Barbarism (feat. Tom Woods)

by | Jan 30, 2023

If all human beings are intrinsically power-hungry and savage, how can we solve our problems by giving ultimate law-making and law-enforcing authority to one particular group of such appalling animals?… The libertarian anarchist contention is not that under anarchy things would be perfect, but that they would be better than they now are.

– Gerard Casey, Ph.D., Libertarian Anarchy: Against the State (2012, Continuum International Publishing Group), pp. 74–75.
