In this concise and ever-timely essay on how anarcho-capitalists should engage the modern state, Hans-Hermann Hoppe dissects the nature of the modern democratic state and then suggests strategies for enacting a bottom-up libertarian revolution in ideology and civil government.Hoppe begins by examining the nature of the state as “a monopolist of defense and the provision and enforcement of law and order.” Recent centuries have experienced almost non-stop and untrammeled growth in the size and scope of the state, and the trend only accelerated with the expansion of democratic states.

Fascism has become a term of general derision and rebuke. It is tossed casually in the direction of anything a critic happens to dislike. But fascism is a real political and economic concept, not a stick with which to beat opponents arbitrarily. The abuse of this important word undermines its true value as a term referring to a very real phenomenon, and one whose spirit lives on even now. Fascism is a specific ideology based on the idea that the state is the ideal organization for realizing a society s and an individual s potential economically, socially, and even spiritually. The state, fo

From the moment it was first proposed, the role of the nursepractitioner has been steeped in controversy. In the fields of bothnursing and medicine, the idea that a nurse practitioner can, to somedegree, serve as a replacement for the physician has sparked heateddebates. Perhaps for that reason, despite the progress of the nursepractitioner movement, NPs have been reluctant to speak aboutthemselves and their work, and their own vision of their role has thusremained largely invisible. Current research is dominated byinstrumental and economic modes of discourse and tends to focus on theclinical

Cognitive science arose in the 1950s when it became apparent that anumber of disciplines, including psychology, computer science,linguistics, and philosophy, were fragmenting. Perhaps owing to thefield’s immediate origins in cybernetics, as well as to thefoundational assumption that cognition is information processing,cognitive science initially seemed more unified than psychology.However, as a result of differing interpretations of the foundationalassumption and dramatically divergent views of the meaning of the terminformation processing, three separate schools emerged:classical cognit

New hardcover edition, introduction by Murray N. Rothbard Like Hayek, Mises moved beyond economics in his later years to address questions regarding the foundation of all social science. But unlike Hayek’s attempts, Mises’s writings on these matters have received less attention than they deserve. Theory and History, writes Rothbard in his introduction, "remains by far the most neglected masterwork of Mises. Here Mises defends his all-important idea of metholodogical duelism: one approach to the hard sciences and another for the social sciences. He defends the epistemological stat

The ABCs of Human Survival examines the effect of militant nationalism and the lawlessness of powerful states on the well-being of individuals, local communities, and global citizenship. Based on the analysis of world events, Arthur Clark presents militant nationalism as a pathological pattern of thinking that threatens our security, while emphasizing effective democracy and international law as indispensable frameworks for human protection. Within the contexts of history, sociology, philosophy, and spirituality, this book calls into question the assumptions of consumer culture and offers, as
