    I thought this hour long narrated essay by Murray Rothbard might be useful to those who are interested in the anarchic view point I hold. It makes for a very easy listen and is an excellent primer for those either confused at why anyone should hold such a view, or for those who have a libertarian bent but are not yet committed to the idea do a stateless existence.

    Murray doesn't over egg the pudding. He makes logical philosophical arguments supported by simple examples and fact. There are no scare tactics. Its a very sober examination with historical correlation. Neither does it go into any detail on how an alternative libertarian state might prosper. It simply makes the argument that the state is predatory on production. Is coercive by nature and ultimately a destructive force.

    About an hour long and split by short musical interludes so each part can be digested. Saves reading a tome.

    Take a look at this video on YouTube:
