Can Anarchy Save Us from Leviathan?
By Andrew R. Rutten
This article appeared in the Spring 1999 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

In his book Against Politics: On Government, Anarchy and Order, anarcho-liberal theorist Anthony de Jasay argues that, without the State, society would evolve incentives for peace and order, rather than a Hobbesian war of all against all. Although De Jasay fails to show why anarchists themselves wouldn’t abuse power, he effectively argues that the Hobbesian assumption is not always true.
