It's Out: "Foundations of Private Property Society Theory: Anarchism for the Civilized Person"

By Robert Wenzel

My new book, "Foundations of Private Property Society Theory: Anarchism for the Civilized Person" is out.

In the book, I consider ideas on how a civilized anarchist society is currently justified and how it is believed such a society could develop. I reject much of the current thinking on the topic.

In my book, I reject natural rights theory and also utilitarianism. I use as a guide Hayek's observation that subjectivism is at the root of every important advance in economic theory and apply this type of extreme subjectivism in an attempt to understand how a private property society could develop.

I consider how culture would work in a PPS and how rules and laws could be developed without an overriding ruling body or legal theme that everyone must abide by.

I consider punishment in a PPS and reject the necessity and possibility of general rule guided proportional punishment.

I also consider how police-type security and "national" defense might develop in a PPS in a manner that is different from the insurance model advanced by Morris and Linda Tannahill and adopted by many libertarians.

I also reject the necessity of the labor mixed with land rule of homesteading promoted by many libertarians.

In short, there is a lot here that is very different from current libertarian thinking about anarchy.

There are two editions of the book that are available.

There is a special hardcover limited edition of 500 copies.

There are available at the present time 100 copies of this limited edition for $60.00 each. I will personally sign these copies and number them 1/100, 2/100 etc. and I will personally inscribe the copies to buyers, just right in the instructions how you want your copy(ies) inscribed.

To order a copy of the limited edition, click here.

Also, a standard paperback edition is available for $17.55.

It available to order from local booksellers and also from Amazon.

 Amazon is temporarily out of stock but you can still order from them now and they should have more copies in a couple of days.

Alternatively, I see Barnes & Noble still has copies in stock and at a discount!

The book is also available from Lulu.

And there are still copies of the hardcover limited edition available.


  1. Just bought on Amazon. Should be an interesting read. Thanks Bob.

  2. I would like a Kindle version. Amazon currently offers only hard copies.
