This weekend we’re pleased to feature a talk by David Gordon from our recent Mises Circle event in California. In less than 20 minutes David takes us through a compelling survey of Plato, Aristotle, Stoic philosopher Zeno of Citium, Frenchman Frederic Bastiat, and into the 20th century with Franz Oppenheimer and Albert Jay Nock. In doing so David demonstrates that the fundamental question of whether society requires a coercive monopoly has been considered throughout the history of human affairs. If you want to better understand the historical underpinnings of Rothbardian and Hoppean anarcho-capitalism, you will especially enjoy this talk.
