"To conclude about the Whig theory of history, the ...problem is that if people have free will and have freedom to make choices, then there are no determinist laws of history. ... that history is a great moral drama, a drama of advance, of conflicts, of retrogression, of good versus evil"

This kind of thing is Rothbard is fun to read even if he is really off base on Christianity and morals.
