Where Best To Live?

Dear Professor Block, First off I would like to thank you for your research in Austrian Economics and libertarianism/anarcho capitalism in general. It has greatly influence my own views. With everything happening in America, do you think it is the best place for libertarians to try to find a home? I’ve been looking into Liechtenstein and it seems like an amazing place, more freedom, and I think I would fit in if I were to immigrate and could integrate well. Do you think there are better opportunities outside of America for libertarianism, Liechtenstein or otherwise, or do you think America is still the best option? Thank you very much, NG

Dear NG: Probably, Liechtenstein, or Monaco, or Hong Kong, or Singapore or Switzerland or New Zealand might be better than the US from a narrow, personal point of view. However, if the US goes under, probably, those places won’t be so safe. Here is the case for staying in America (the last few sentences of Human Action): “Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders; no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way out for himself if society is sweeping toward destruction. Therefore, everyone, in his own interests, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle. None can stand aside with unconcern; the interest of everyone hangs on the result. Whether he chooses or not, every man is drawn into the great historical struggle, the decisive battle into which our epoch has plunged us.”
