I don't recall David Friedman advocating an abrupt change to Anarcho Capitalism. In fact, I'm not aware of him making any attempt to propose a transition from our current situation to Anarcho Capitalism. This is what is lacking in his writings. I'm still waiting for someone to make a decent proposal. I suppose slowly selling off all of the governments assets and repaying previous tax payers is a good start. If your saying Popper has made a decent proposal for this transition, I'd like the references so I could read him. I've been waiting for this.
