Free downloads of today's leading libertarian philosopher

Hans-Hermann Hoppe is an Austrian-school economist and leading libertarian philosopher. He is
German born and Professor of Economics at UNLV (Nevada), Distinguished Fellow with the Ludwig von Mises Institute, Founder and President of The Property and Freedom Society, and Editor-at-Large of the Journal of Libertarian Studies.

He is the author of several widely-discussed books and articles in defense of libertarian rights, based on the ethics theories of philosophers Jürgen Habermas and Karl-Otto Apel. 
Hoppe analyzed the behavior of government and defines government as "a territorial monopolist of jurisdiction and taxation". Assuming self-interest on the part of government officials, he concludes that these government officials use their monopoly privileges to maximize their own wealth and power. Hoppe provides historical data proving his theoretical assumptions.
