Murray Newton Rothbard, born in 1926 in New York, USA, was a philosopher and economist of the Austrian school. Rothbard was the founder and leading thinker of anarcho-capitalism, an unwavering supporter of historical revisionism, and a central figure of the American libertarian or classical liberal movement in the 20th century.
On Rothbard Day 2014, a short presentation by Murray Rothbard, prepared by Svetilnik's sympathiser Marko Žerjal, was followed by a round table on the topic "Society without a State", where Marko Pavlišič (National Assembly), Tibor Rutar (Initiative for Democratic Socialism), and Marko Žerjal (self-employed person) discussed the role of the state in society and sought answers to the following questions:
Could a society without a state function and be just?
What is the nature and role of taxation and its impact on the individual?
What is the connection between the individual and the community?
Does the state encourage or inhibit solidarity between people?
What are the pitfalls of ensuring the protection of human rights and freedoms in a democracy?
The round table was moderated by Andreja Kokalj.
