Subject: Mandatory Evacuation Orders

Dear Walter,

On October 26th, a very nice Saturday afternoon in our town; we were all given mandatory evacuation orders by the county sheriff. We had to leave town by 4 PM or else.

What does Libertarianism say about mandatory evacuation orders by the government?

Thank you for all of your correspondence and work for liberty.


Dear T:

As it happens, I’ve recently written about just that issue:

Hint: I oppose governmental mandatory evacuation orders.
