It's once again time for the Ancap Barber Shop! In the 35th episode, we are discussing the privatization of police and the second women's march.

We start off by sampling some of Yak-Man Nick Hazleton's world-famous Yak Jerky he was kind enough to send us, it was really good! We then move on to our Ancap Barber book club segment, discussing chapter two of "Anatomy of the State" by Murray Rothbard, What the state is. We will next discuss chapter 3: How the state preserves itself. You can get the free PDF or audiobook at https://mises.org/library/anatomy-state
Adam recounts a moment early in his libertarian life where he and Scott had a discussion about areas of Mexico that were primarily controlled by mobs. Adam asks Scott if he thinks they need government to control their lives instead, to which Scott replies "They already have too many governments." Real fuckin deep Scott. Dave retorts with some concerns about our governmental situation likely being better than mob-run areas of Mexico, to which Scott begrudgingly concedes.
We continue on discussing the privatization of police. Scott reads an excerpt from "For A New Liberty: The Libertarian Manifesto" also by Murray Rothbard. If you haven't read it, we recommend it, and you can get the book for free here
Dave and Scott have an exchange about the economic principles of price gouging.
Scott also reads from "The Machinery of Freedom" by David Friedman. It's really good as well, and you can read it for free here
