I could only stomach about 1:42 of that tripe. If, in order to reach the masses, philosopher is reduced to that kind of crap, then we, as a human race, are absolutely f*****.
I would include Hobbes, Locke, Hume, Kant, Mill, Thoreau, and Simmons in the group of modern political philosophers who espouse liberty. None of these philosophers could be classified as political anarchists (although, Simmons self-identifies as a "philosophical anarchist"); all of them argue that societal/government structures must exist to mete out justice and resolve disputes.
