Abstract [en]

The fundamental function of the state is safeguarding the safety of its citizens. Thecombination of Nozick’s invisible hand explanation with his theory of justice implies thatindividuals can have full private property rights in the state. An individual with suchproperty rights thus has the right to sell and destroy what he or she owns. This impliesthat it is perfectly fair to buy a state and dismantle it, thereby leaving citizens withoutprotection. I conclude that Nozick’s theory of the state fails since it cannot guarantee theprotection of its citizens’ safety.
