The Man Versus the State Hardcover – June 1, 1982
Spencer develops various specific disastrous ramifications of the wholesale substitution of the principle of compulsory cooperationthe statist principlefor the individualist principle of voluntary cooperation. His theme is that there is in society . . . that beautiful self-adjusting principle which will keep all its elements in equilibrium. . . . The attempt to regulate all the actions of a community by legislation will entail little else but misery and compulsion.
