Being sympathetic with Anarchism, I often disregard self-proclaimed "Anarchocapitalists". Whatever the term, it points out the same set of economic ideas American neoconservatives pray for. Instead, Anarchism -as is- has a longstanding tradition of social criteria far away from the established focus on law and individual property ingrained in market based societies to all extents (i.e., capitalism, socialism).
Out of curiosity -given the good choice of a tittle- I decided to give this book a little go, trying to convince myself I may be wrong in my presumptions about such an unfortunately coined term, Anarcho-capitalism. For my own surprise, the book testified it was self-published from the very first pages: There is no evidence of peer review whatsoever. It is sad the author took the path of solipsism and not factual thinking yet describing himself a thinker and a pragmatic.
To provide a clear example, he doesn't even know the historic origin of current monetary systems: Due to recurrent debt crisis in old kingdoms all around the world. How does he come to the conclusion that "it took no king to produce money" escapes me. What is the origin of post Middle Age principalities if so?
I could keep going but I am afraid this review is becoming more boring than the very same book.
