No Government, No Force

A Spontaneous Order: The Capitalist Case For A Stateless Society

As my readers would know, I became a Libertarian not long after Barry Goldwater ran for President — that’s over 50 years now, and have since graduated from basic free-market capitalism to full-blown Voluntary Anarchy.

I do this webpage following the discovery of Christopher Chase Rachels, who has written here on the many aspects on “Voluntary” with which I have struggled for several years.

Author Christopher Chase Rachels has with this book very well outline the entire path to replacing GOVERNment with a Voluntary System which many call Anarchy.  He appears to be relatively young, and may be the bright shining star of our future.

This book is a great primer for those looking to begin exploring libertarian and anarcho-capitalist thought. The author is clearly well-read and cites several great sources so that the reader can explore each topic further. There are not many original ideas however, which is why I can’t give it five stars; but it is an excellent guide to libertarian ideas.

Continuing in the tradition of Rothbard and Hoppe, and building on their great work, Chase Rachels presents a compelling, engaging case for capitalism and a libertarian social order. Rachels touches on a wide range of topics with great aptitude, including the basics of Epistemology and Praxeology, Libertarianism, Property, Banking, Healthcare, and ways to achieve the type of society presented in the book. Perfect for someone just discovering libertarianism, or the long-time lover of liberty looking to sharpen their perspective and arguments.

I’ve had it over a month, and I’ve barely been able to get past the first chapter.

It seems to be INCREDIBLY basic, if you have read any book on Libertarianism, before i don’t recommend this, its a slog.
Skip the first chapter for sure (by a different author) Its absolutely tormentingly simple. The whole thing seems to quote Hoppe like the bible, when it is really really unnecessarily, its like a student quoting the textbook he just took a statement from.
For example:

The Sky is blue, we can tell this by looking at it, also, Hoppe says “The sky, is a shade of color, commonly referenced to, in English as blue”.

Frankly, A Spontaneous Order is “For A New Liberty” for the 2010’s. Make no mistake, this is truly Chase’s book, but the frequent quotes draw from the greatest minds of libertarianism’s past and present: Rothbard, Hoppe, Mises, even Ayn Rand is given her dues. A systematic explanation of libertarianism is given in it’s purest form: Thin, Anarcho-Capitalism. Starting with the epistomology and action axiom, all the way to the legitimate applications of the Private Property ethic and the NAP, the book covers practically everything you’re looking for in a primer about anarcho-capitalism. Easily recommended.

The best book I’ve read since Hoppe’s Democracy: The God That Failed.

This is a must read for anyone interested in the liberty movement and Anarcho Capitalism in general.

It’s a quick read that is full of information and no filler.

Throughout all the Libertarian literature that I have read, this book takes the cake. The level of comprehension the author shows is of utmost integral scholarship. I would recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in learning more about Libertarian philosophy and the prospects of one day having a stateless and truly free society.

This book is perhaps the most concise moral and practical case set forth in support of anarcho-capitalism.
