Too much Murray Rothbard will rot your brain. Anarcho-capitalism is libertarianism gone mad.

Not that I disagree with everything Murray has had to say.

I heard Tom Woods talking about Rothbard this past weekend at the Libertarian State Convention.
Woods talked like he'd defend Rothbard to the last breath. Will post video when I can find it.
