I actually posted a short clip of Murray Rothbard the other day as part of a post on Ayn Rand and since I’ve been on a bit of a Rothbard kick. He was an amazing political and economic theoretician and if you are not familiar with the man you should be. He is arguably the single most influential libertarian economist ever.
Below I attach Rothbard’s classic essay in audio form, Anatomy of the State, for your review. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but if you are the type of person who likes to be challenged intellectually Rothbard will challenge you. His is a distilled small government philosophy. Libertarian white lightning.
