Publisher's Note: I wrote the Foreword for my friend Jim Rawles’ latest book, Land of Promise, which is now available for order on Amazon. This is the global release day for the book, December 1st. He is really stepping up his game. In other news, I have just completed all six parts of a series I did with ProfCJ at the Dangerous History Podcast on Irregular Warfare. Indeed, we started with one part anticipated and ended with six and potentially more. We are pretty proud of the end product. Please be sure to stop by my forum if you get the opportunity especially if you disagree with the notion of living free. There are far more sub-forums than the two visible to the general booboisee once you join. My books are available on Amazon and I would love some honest reviews if you have the time. –BB
“We must ask, not whether an anarcho-capitalist society would be safe from a power grab by the men with the guns (safety is not an available option), but whether it would be safer than our society is from a comparable seizure of power by the men with the guns. I think the answer is yes. In our society, the men who must engineer such a coup are politicians, military officers, and policemen, men selected precisely for the characteristic of desiring power and being good at using it. They are men who already believe that they have a right to push other men around - that is their job. They are particularly well qualified for the job of seizing power. Under anarcho-capitalism the men in control of protection agencies are selected for their ability to run an efficient business and please their customers. It is always possible that some will turn out to be secret power freaks as well, but it is surely less likely than under our system where the corresponding jobs are labeled 'non-power freaks need not apply'.”
