Murray Rothbard came to me, or I came to him after years of admiring and following Ron Paul's speeches and ideas. After reading anatomy of the state and other works from Rothbard, now I see where many of Ron Paul's ideas originate. They come from Rothbard, and Rothbard's ideas, at the same time, originate in Mises' interpretation of life in the world throughout the lens of Austrian Economics and individualism.
If you identify yourself with Ron Paul, libertarianism, individualism and classical liberalism, then this is a book you need to read to know what we, as a civilization, are currently facing in the form of tyrannical governments, corrupt politicians and despotic ruling elites. Rothbard deconstructs many of those vague ideas and uncertain images we have about how things are and how things should be, to provide us with, instead, a very clear target of what's wrong in this world and how we can respond to those who threaten our freedom to think, do, and be.
I highly recommend this book. But be warned, if you decide to go ahead and read it, your views on humanity and your own perspective of reality will be forever changed and there will be no coming back. And that, in this case, will always be good news, as keeping things the way we are will doom us all eventually,
Regarding the publication: The front cover is awful. It's only tangentially related to the text, and is aesthetically displeasing. The reverse is even worse, having plain red text over a stretched image of the White House. Not only does this look horrible, but there shouldn't be any reference to the US as it threatens the universality of the work.
