That type of deal. As a work of political philosophy, it is highly abstract, making use of thought experiments and hypothetical worlds inspired by the early-modern Social Contract theorists especially Locke. The endless arguments against utilitarianism are a bit tedious, but there is so much great stuff in this book. Yet he is also a very formal and dense writer I don’t see these as negatives, especially in this case.
He wasn’t active in it for estdo, he didn’t have as big a popular or political impact as Milton Friedmanand all the organizations and think tanks were started by others.

The author claims in the closing pages that he had a pattern in mind all along, but the book is more of a mind-dump than anything else.
The entitlement-welfare state dialog has not abated in modern political debate, and those who desire an in-depth analysis of these debates will find it estaeo this book.
And if we introduce the right for healthcare, even utopja its most libertarian form the ri The author carefully proved moral possibility and necessity of the minimal state.
