Attack the System
Robert Nozick and the Evolution of Anti-State Thought

June 26, 2013

Keith Preston discusses the work of the late Harvard philosopher Robert Nozick.

Topics include:

  • Nozick’s “Anarchy, State, and Utopia” as a landmark work in political philosophy and its influence in academia.
  • How both the Left and Right often read Nozick selectively and vulgarize his thinking.
  • The relevance of Nozick’s concept of the “ultra-minimal state” to fourth generation warfare theory.
  • Nozick’s concept of a meta-utopia of self-determined communities and how this presents a model for the evolution of anti-state radicalism beyond both leftist anarcho-social democracy and vulgar libertarian plutocratic apologies.
