Happy Rothbard Day!

This machine kills fascists - Murray at his famous typewriter

I note, thanks to fellow blogger Tanstaafl Canada, that today is the birthday of Murray Rothbard (March 2, 1926 – January 7, 1995). At present I am wading through 'Conceived in Liberty', his history of colonial America, and I've got as far as the Boston Massacre, so it's all shaping up for the final denouement. And of course history was only one string to his poymathic bow. The great man left such a momentous body of work, he will endure for many years to come.

I think I've just stumbled on a series of his lectures that I've not heard before. Here's one of them: "Woodrow Wilson and World War One". The rest can be found at the Mises Institute.

These are the sorts of people who are vital in our world - until they're stomped with the Monty Python foot.

Nice find. Definitely haven't heard that lecture before.
