Six Stages of the Libertarian Movement | Murray N. Rothbard

A prolific author and Austrian economist, Murray Rothbard promoted a form of free-market anarchism he called “anarcho-capitalism.”

In this video from the first Libertarian International World Libertarian Convention in 1982 in Zurich, Switzerland,

Rothbard gives a lecture on what he identified as the six stages of building an independent libertarian (or any philosophical) movement in a region.

Rothbard identifies possible growing pains associated with the growing popularity of libertarianism but ultimately concludes that such risks are necessary because:

“Libertarians, it seems to me, are not content with contemplating justice, contemplating truth, goodness and beauty, we’re not playing intellectual games — we mean to change the world. We want to put this thing into reality.”
