First published in 1997, this volume challenges the belief that possessive individualists need states to restrain them from trespassing on the natural rights of others or from harming themselves and questions whether anarchy can be sustained to accommodate the long-term self-interests of possessive individualists. Issues discussed include Hobbes’ response to the Foole, Libertarian Anarchism and the inevitability of a minimal state in anarchist society, along with tactics to avoid large wealth differentials.
1. The Political Options for Possessive Individualists. 2. Possessive Individualists in Libertarian Anarchy. 3. Invisible Hand Pressures on Possessive Individualists. 4. Intermission. 5. Authority, Individuals & Stateless Political Community. 6. Responsibility & Public Order in Acephalous Community. 7. The (Re) distribution of Wealth in Anarchies. 8. Conclusion.
