Connor Boyack is back with another book in the Tuttle Twins series called The Fate of the Future. It's based on Murray Rothbard's famous Anatomy of the State, and like Rothbard it pulls no punches when describing government as predatory, violent, and coercive. Connor and Jeff Deist discuss why it's so important to offer an early alternative to the fantasyland view of the state that kids get in schools, and how the revolutionary act of home schooling may prove more powerful than any other libertarian activism.
