Hans-Hermann Hoppe


“Conflict is not unavoidable. However, it is nonsensical to consider the institution of a state as a solution to the problem of possible conflict, because it is precisely the institution of a state which first makes conflict unavoidable and permanent.”

“Democracy has nothing to do with freedom. Democracy is a soft variant of communism, and rarely in the history of ideas has it been taken for anything else.” People who disparage Hoppe have already bought into the utopia that has been relentlessly advertised by the powers that be. In their books, we absolutely can’t do without a strong authority to solve all our problems for us. When such problems persist, it is the direct result of the authority not having been made strong enough. Hans-Herman Hoppe’s utopia doesn’t revolve around a supposition that problems aren’t inevitable. He simply wants a world where people endure whichever problems have been prescribed to them by God, and lead their lives without being forced to forfeit anything in the interest of a nonexistent greater good. Do you have to agree with every word Hoppe has ever uttered in order to take inspiration from his work? Not at all. That is a vile standard to hold any public thinker to, and certainly not one that any propagandist for statism would ever pass.
