Hans-Hermann Hoppe is the peace and property go-to guy. You will enjoy his 2001 book, Democracy: The God That Failed. I liked that in his denunciation of democracy that he recognized the virtues of traditional monarchies, not the ones that are largely ceremonial today like the king and queen of Great Britain. He makes an excellent point that monarchies treat its people and its nation’s property and treasure with far greater regard than do four-year managers of democracies. And he argues that everyone’s standard of living is much higher in a traditional monarchy. Give a listen.
