really liked it

In this book Robert Higgs summarizes his ideas on why we have to challenge the existence of government. One by one he knocks down, as dominoes, the rationalization to preserve government. Many people can't imagine a world without government because we were raise, by government, to believe it is a necessary institution. If humans had the creativity to create governments, we have so to create its alternatives. Innovation has being restrained by the straw man discourse from governments. Like Dickens' Emperor Clothes we are reluctant to see, and Higgs does a great job in opening our eyes to understand that a world without government (as we know it) is not the same as a world of chaos.
