By Robert Wenzel
My new book, "Foundations of Private Property Society Theory: Anarchism for the Civilized Person" is out.
In the book, I consider ideas on how a civilized anarchist society is currently justified and how it is believed such a society could develop. I reject much of the current thinking on the topic.
I reject natural rights theory and also utilitarianism. I use as a guide Hayek's observation that subjectivism is at the root of every important advance in economic theory and apply this type of extreme subjectivism in an attempt to understand how a private property society could develop.
I consider how culture would work in a PPS and how rules and laws could be developed without an overriding ruling body or legal theme that everyone must abide by.
I consider punishment in a PPS and reject the necessity and possibility of general rule guided proportional punishment.
I also consider how police-type security and "national" defense might develop in a PPS in a manner that is different from the insurance model advanced by Morris and Linda Tannahill and adopted by many libertarians.
I also reject the labor mixed with land rule of homesteading promoted by many libertarians.
In short, there is a lot here that is very different from current libertarian thinking about anarchy.
