Blast Off! With Johnny Rocket Episode #53: Private Property Society! (w/Robert Wenzel)
Show Summary: Private Property Society theory was developed by Robert Wenzel as a theory on a type of societal structure that could exist where respect for private property is preeminent. Each property owner is free to set any rules he chooses for his property based on this societal structure. Wenzel sees no role for government laws or government security and has argued that in a Private Property Society competing for private security firms would emerge. So, don’t miss this exciting and educational episode with Robert Wenzel!
About the Guest: Robert Wenzel is editor & publisher of EconomicPolicyJournal.com and of Target Liberty, where he discusses issues relating to free markets, liberty and Private Property Society theory. Wenzel does not expect to see a Private Property Society develop in his lifetime but he loves the intellectual battle involved in promoting it and the smashing of statists.
