Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Anarcho-capitalism and minarchism are the two distinct strains of libertarianism. Anarcho-capitalism advocates simply abolishing the state so that private-sector entities will be free to promulgate, enforce and adjudicate legal codes. Minarchism calls for a "minimal" or Night watchman state. In a minarchy, the only justifiable government institutions are armies, police, courts and legislatures, for the purposes of protecting citizens from external attack, from local crime, to determine innocence or guilt, and to determine the proper application of property rights in new areas. In an anarcho-capitalist society, these functions would be provided by competing private firms.show more
