Great Book by Rothbard

I found it to be precise and strong both in language and logic.

The only limitation, as I can see, was that Rothbard could not present his arguments against Ayn Rand's solid logic for the necessity of a small state. For once, absense of patent law will undermine long-term investment and actually put a portion of free marker in a state of paranoia. But that is a minor hinderence that can be viewed as a virtual tax on invention. The bigger argument against anarchy was that private security, police and arbitration is fine and dandy to the point of conviction. After the conviction, under anarchism, mafia will rule how the verdict is enforced. Again, "perfect" man is Utopia.
