… anarchism [is] a simple matter of libertarian logic.

Murray N. Rothbard
Betrayal of the American Right, p. 145

 

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.

Murray N. Rothbard
Economic Thought Before Adam Smith, p. 279

 

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.

Murray N. Rothbard
Ethics of Liberty, p. 182
