Good topic, thanks.

Rothbard was a corporatist, also knowable as a fascist, hiding behind a free market cloak.

Much of what Rothbard did, in writing or otherwise, was accurate accounting of the criminals who took over free market government.

Rothbard deserves an accurate accounting for his contributions in defense of Liberty, as well as his contributions in covering up for the criminals.

I can do both, if you care to entertain a competitive viewpoint.

As to free market defense of liberty government voluntary association, there is that time period between 1776 and 1787 to be accurately accounted for in demonstrable fact, if you care to do that too.

The false story is one that claims such things as this:

"There a perception that libertarians are lacking when it comes to communicating how the justice system would function differently under libertarian law."

That fails to accurately account for how systems of accurate accounting (justice) did function so at to effectively defend the innocent from harm by criminals including criminals who perpetrate crimes under the color of law.

4 examples are readily available.

1.
Greece during the so called Golden Age.

2.
Rome during specific times such as the time being referred to in the following quote:
"The tribunes of the people were at first five in number, tho afterward, their body was Increased to five more. They were always annually Ellected by the people, and Gennerally from their own body. They had Power of annuling. They had Power of anuling all Such acts of the Senate as they Considered to Distress upon the people and to Show their readiness to protect the meanest, their Doors Stood open night and day, to Receive Complaints."

3.
England before, during, and for some time after Magna Carte whereby Trial by Jury was a method used by people as an effective defense of people.

4.
The working Free Market Voluntary Association in the form of a Federation in between 1776 and 1787 in America including common law trial by jury.

5.
The Icelandic Common Wealth past and present, with some dark ages in between. Sources are abundant in that case.

So the Murray Rothbard opinion may represent the power of the lie that no such voluntary association has, can, or will exist, to effectively defend against criminals within, or without said association is exposed by those examples soundly.

If anyone cares to know better from worse.

"That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."

"In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence."

Worse:

Judiciary Act of 1789

Better:
common law, rule of law, common sense, no one is above the law, those who claim to be above the law confess their guilty minds, when the law of the land is such that effective defense of the innocent (a.k.a. defense of Liberty) is demanded and supplied by the highest quality and lowest cost competitors in that free market.

The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned.

Shut the F up and pay.

If you don't, you will pay more.

No more questions.
