Hans-Hermann Hoppe shows the evolution of government away from aristocracy, through monarchy, and toward the corruption and irresponsibility of democracy—a long march toward today’s leviathan state. There is hope for liberty, but reversing the tide will not be easy. Radical decentralization and secession, Hoppe posits, are the last best way forward. This eye-opening monograph is ideal for sharing with friends. It will revolutionize the way you view society and the state.

Narrated by Millian Quinteros. This audio essay is made available through the generosity of Mr. Tyler Folger.
