5.0 out of 5 stars A breath of fresh air (courtesy of the free market of course!), January 5, 2011

This review is from: Differing Worldviews in Higher Education: Two Scholars Argue Cooperatively about Justice Education (Hardcover)
I'll admit, I am a Walter Block fanboy. I've had more "Ah ha!" moments reading Block than most writers. I credit Ayn Rand for converting me to libertarianism (much to her dismay, I'm sure) and credit Block for offering me the "red pill" of Austro-Anarcho Libertarianism. Needless to say, I was instantly drawn to this collaborative book. And I absolutely thank Four Arrows for it was his idea to co-author a book where intellectuals with opposing ideologies could "cooperatively argue" (although he mistakenly assumed Block was a right-wing conservative before they began writing). And yes, I expected this book's final chapter to read "Four Arrows: Why I'm now a libertarian", but not so fast. Four Arrows is intelligently analytical and sharp. It's refreshing to hear more articulate counter-arguments to libertarian beliefs. Four Arrows asked questions that had me on the edge of my seat, eager to read Block's rebuttals. But in the end, this book only further reinforced my principles as a Rothbardian libertarian. One of the most significant lessons I learned from this book is that we all should recognize the importance of definitions. Particularly when we throw around words like "capitalism", "aggression", even "libertarianism" (to name a few).
