Professor Casey is the author of two important books. One is The Worldview of Murray Rothbard (published last year as part of a 20 volume series on Conservative and Libertarian Thinkers).  His new book, Libertarian Anarchy: Against the State, will be released September 2012.

Who was Murray Rothbard as a Political Philosopher and Historian?  What was the approach to his scholarship in these roles?  What was the common ingredient to Rothbard's intellectual toolkit he applied to so many areas of study?

How valuable is Natural Law Ethics to the Philosophy of Liberty and Law?  What can Rothbard's The Ethics of Liberty teach us about Natural Law?

What IS Anarchy and what is Anarchy NOT?  Is anarchy synonymous with chaos, death, and destruct ion?

How did the State originate?  What is The State's history as it relates to war making and excessive taxation? What are current and historical examples of Stateless and Anarchic societies?

Do all Libertarians identify themselves as Libertines?  What is the difference?  And, why is the non-aggression principle the ultimate guide post for Libertarians who advocate a free society that thrives on peaceful cooperation vs. coercion?

Can Law, Order, and Security be provided without The State?  If so, what is the fate of the State once more people come to understand this point? 

How can you help convince others about these arguments?

Please tune in to hear a riveting discussion with special guest Gerard Casey about these important topics.
