The editor's motive
Thomas Jacob grew up in the "politically squalid seventies", as he puts it. His search for a consistent and inspiring political philosophy initially ended with Hans- Hermann Hoppe. "Hoppe answered my most fundamental questions, the rest is an application of these principles. That gives me peace of mind and security and I want to make that available to others, especially young people". Jacob has known Hoppe personally since 1990 and is good friends with him.
