Since Nozick was writing to defend the limited state and did not justify his starting assumption that individuals have rights, this led some academics to dismiss libertarianism as ‘without foundations,’ in the words of the philosopher Thomas Nagel. Nozick argues that anarcho-capitalism would inevitably transform into a minarchist state, even without violating any of its own non-aggression principlesthrough the eventual emergence of a single locally dominant private defense and judicial agency that it is in everyone’s interests to align with, because other agencies are unable to effectively compete against the advantages of the agency with majority coverage.

In opposition to A Theory of Justice by John Rawlsand in debate with Michael Walzer[3] Nozick argues in favor of a minimal state”limited to the narrow functions of protection against force, theft, fraud, enforcement of contracts, and so on.

The author discusses the tension that arises between the ultraminimal state and those who decide not to participate in it. I don’t fault him for failing to propose a solution to this conundrum, because he doesn’t purport to do so and correctly states that it is for eac I wish more anarquiz would actually read this book and acknowledge that this is not a road map for policy making or even directly transferable nkzick a non-hypothetical world.
