Murray Newton Rothbard è stato un economista, filosofo, politico, giornalista, storico e teorico giusnaturalista statunitense, esponente principale dell'anarco-capitalismo, del quale fu il più importante ideatore.

Autore prolifico e vero e proprio emblema del libertarismo americano, partendo da concetti individualisti e basandosi su presupposti di tipo etico, ha combattuto con teorie precise ed esemplificazioni ogni entità statale, proponendo a più riprese la nascita spontanea di ordini policentrici basati sulla proprietà privata e il libero mercato. Si occupò anche di revisionismo storiografico.

Allievo di Ludwig von Mises, viene collocato tra i principali esponenti degli economisti neo-austriaci americani.

„I define anarchist society as one where there is no legal possibility for coercive aggression against the person or property of any individual.“

— Murray N. Rothbard
Context: I define anarchist society as one where there is no legal possibility for coercive aggression against the person or property of any individual. Anarchists oppose the State because it has its very being in such aggression, namely, the expropriation of private property through taxation, the coercive exclusion of other providers of defense service from its territory, and all of the other depredations and coercions that are built upon these twin foci of invasions of individual rights.

„All interstate wars intensify aggression – maximize it“

— Murray N. Rothbard
Context: All interstate wars intensify aggression – maximize it … some wars are even more unjust than others. In other words, all government wars are unjust, although some governments have less unjust claims… As quoted in an [http://www.antiwar.com/orig/rothbard_on_war.html interview in Reason magazine (February 1973)].

„Consequently, both the communist and the individualist wings of anarchism have drawn sustenance from this work.“

— Murray N. Rothbard
Context: In 1756 Edmund Burke published his first work: Vindication of Natural Society. Curiously enough it has been almost completely ignored in the current Burke revival. This work contrasts sharply with Burke’s other writings, for it is hardly in keeping with the current image of the Father of the New Conservatism. A less conservative work could hardly be imagined; in fact, Burke’s Vindication was perhaps the first modern expression of rationalistic and individualistic anarchism. … "Anarchism" is an extreme term, but no other can adequately describe Burke’s thesis. Again and again, he emphatically denounces any and all government, and not just specific forms of government. … All government, Burke adds, is founded on one "grand error." It was observed that men sometimes commit violence against one another, and that it is therefore necessary to guard against such violence. As a result, men appoint governors among them. But who is to defend the people against the governors? … The anarchism of Burke’s Vindication is negative, rather than positive. It consists of an attack on the State rather than a positive blueprint of the type of society which Burke would regard as ideal. Consequently, both the communist and the individualist wings of anarchism have drawn sustenance from this work. [http://archive.lewrockwell.com/rothbard/rothbard11.html "Edmund Burke, Anarchist"], first published as "A Note on Burke’s Vindication of Natural Society" in the Journal of the History of Ideas, 19, 1 (January 1958), p. 114.
