A Post-Libertarian Realpolitik

My talk at the Hackers Congress Paralelní Polis 2017 (HCPP17) conference in Prague on October 8, 2017.


We as libertarians often maintain that the state is a fiction, sometimes a consensual one. But what if the notion of rights is equally a fiction, too? We will examine a realpolitik perspective on how individual autonomy was curtailed historically and what a posited rising marginal cost of oppression means for the future of liberty.
