Radical Capitalism

It's no secret that I have libertarian leanings.

But compared to economist David Friedman, I am a raving socialist.

Friedman calls himself an "anarchist-anachronist" capitalist, which essentially means he believes we could get along quite well with absolutely no government.

Here's a chapter from his book, The Machinery of Freedom, in which he explains why we don't need government police or courts.

You might not agree with him, but you will probably find his radical views intriguing.
