: I'd also like references to any libertarian capitalism pages or journals that have a real bitch about democracy as a disempowerer, a real rant about capitalism as the direct empowerer and theories about the corporate state EG every citizens wealth is a vote, the wealthy have more votes than others but we capitalists like autocracies that way.

There is a good article called "Democracy is Coercive" which you can read at the site of the Ludwig von Mises Institute here.

You also ought to check out the Journal of Libertarian Studies which has been fully archived at the Web Site of the Center for Libertarian Studies here. You'll find much there which should be instructive.

I can't recommend enough the work of Murray Rothbard. If you can't get through the massive "Man, Economy, and State", you should at least read "Power and Market" and "The Ethics of Liberty". I believe all of these books are available through either Amazon.com or Laissez Faire Books.

Finally, you should browse Free-Market.Net for information on all these topics and more.

Good luck to you. I'm curious to see what you'll come up with.
