Rothbardianism In Iraq?

August 21, 2009

At my blog Free Advice, a Marine reservist who spent time in Iraq describes a post-Saddam village that is on the borderline between a very limited government and a real-world example of anarcho-capitalism. Basically, in the comments the readers who are anarchists think it is an example of anarchy, while those who say “anarchy is unstable” obviously disagree.

It’s a very interesting case and I invite Mises.org readers to chime in with their thoughts. Obviously the village doesn’t feature insurance companies selling quarterly defense services, but then again I’m not sure you could buy a whole life insurance policy, either.
