by Andrew Young (University of Mississippi)

In this paper I examine Hoppe's unified ethics and generalize it by arguing that self-ownership is not the only permissible ethic based on its presuppositions. Rather, I argue that self-ownership is one specific and permissible ethic amongst a general class of permissible ethics. As such, libertarianism becomes a permissible solution to the problem of social order but not the permissible solution.
