A stateless society is hardly the answer to achieve liberty, because, as we are witnessing in the 21st century, when one mighty power begins to crumble another will take its place. A stateless society will not be the end result of the authors aims. to remove central government. A corporate run central governing system is already on the rise to take the place of our democratic central government. Removal of "state" (our current central government) would only quicken this process. Furthermore, we will be worse of with corporate central government, since corporations are inherently driven by profit, not human well-being.
The author writes about libertarianism, its history, the logic, the ethics, the economics, and its application. This book is rich in political context examples located in the US primarily set in 1950 to 1970. The author deduces very convincingly a stateless society as the logical consequence in order to achieve liberty, i.e. a life without coercion (without unchosen obligations).
