I know Rothbard never finished the fifth edition, but still, any chance that what he did write will be released?

Yours, Alex Peak “I’m very optimistic about the future of free-market capitalism. I’m not optimistic about the future of stat[ist] capitalism—or rather, I am optimistic, because I think it will eventually come to an end.” – Murray N. Rothbard, “A Future of Peace and Capitalism,” 1973

I would love to have seen a Volume 5 myself.  I read the existing four volumes, found it very edifying.  But I would have been fascinated to see his take on the period of the Articles of Confederation, Constitutional Convention and early Constitutional Republic, circa 1789 to perhaps 1801, the end of the federalist period. 

If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

I'm likewise extremely interested in this. Volume 5 and the writing of the constitution is the one area I'm most anxious for Rothbard's brilliant insights. There's one scholar, H.A. Scott Trask, who seems to be in the know about the manuscript, and has even read it (check out the Mises Daily post 'Reconsidering the Articles of Confederation' by him). I would gladly donate my time, effort, and money to seeing this fifth volume published. What about you guys?

Discussion here with Mr. T's input.

Ron Paul is for self-government when compared to the Constitution. He's an anarcho-capitalist. Proof.
