Summary

Murray Rothbard was known as the state's greatest living enemy, and this audiobook is his most powerful statement on the topic. He explains what a state is and what it is not. He shows how it is an institution that violates all that we hold as honest and moral, and how it operates under a false cover. He shows how the state wrecks freedom, destroys civilization, and threatens all lives and property and social well-being, all under the veneer of "good intentions".

Good material

The material is great but the book cuts out and doesnt finish chapters. Is a little frustrating not getting all the story.

First experience with audiobooks, not impressed

The inflections in the narrator's voice are way overdone, making it hard to actually listen to what is being said. The last sentence of each chapter is chopped short. The content of the book itself is very well laid out and convincing. An essential must-read.

Great analysis

A wonderful take on government relations to the people. And a specific analysis comparing the governing figures to multiple over powering entities throughout history.

One improvement would be in the audible version the last word or two are cut off before switching chapters. It doesn't affect much but it cuts off randomly.
