Who is Hans-Herman Hoppe?

Hans-Hermann Hoppe on the Problem of Social Order

Every once in a while I come across a new thinker who causes me to reconsider my prior assumptions about the world. One of those people is Hans-Hermann Hoppe.

With clarity and precision, Hoppe attacks the existing social order found in Western democracies and proposes a new way of structuring society. He calls his preferred vision of society a natural law society. In his view, the government has a monopoly on the use of force and is the final decision maker in conflicts, even conflicts involving itself. Because he believes all monopolies are bad, he attacks this monopoly as unethical. He proposes a new way of structuring law based on competition amongst natural law-making service providers. He has many books available for free at Mises.org, which I hope to review in future posts.
