I was in Vietnam when Nixon was running for president. One of his key platform planks was that he “had a secret plan to end the war.” Then he was elected and the war drug on as we sent our buddies home missing limbs, eyes and grossly disfigured or in body bags. Then the word got around–We can say one thing for that son-of-a-bitch–he sure can keep a secret.
Please, if possible, ignore the partisanship and flag waving propaganda bullshit and focus on the individuals and their experience. They are my fellow dupes and we were all just young, dumb kids that did not fully understand what it was they were sending us to do. I particularly wanted to puke at the image of Henry Kissinger.
I hope you will watch this and I also hope that you don’t enjoy it. — jtl, 419
The Essence of Liberty Volume I: Liberty and History chronicles the rise and fall of the noble experiment with constitutionally limited government. It features the ideas and opinions of some of the world’s foremost contemporary constitutional scholars. This is history that you were not taught at the mandatory government propaganda camps otherwise known as “public schools.” You will gain a clear understanding of how America’s decline and decay is really nothing new and how it began almost immediately with the constitution. Available in both paperback and Kindle versions.
The Essence of Liberty Volume II: The Economics of Liberty Volume II will introduce the reader to the fundamental principles of the Austrian School of Economics. The Austrian School traces its origins back to the Scholastics of Medieval Spain. But its lineage actually began with Carl Menger and continued on through Adam Smith, Ludwig von Mises, Murray Rothbard and many others. It is the one and only true private property based, free market line of economic thought. Available in both paperback and Kindle versions.
The Essence of Liberty Volume III: Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic. This is the volume that pulls it all together. With reference to Hans-Hermann Hoppe’s description of Murray Rothbard’s work, it is a “unique contribution to the rediscovery of property and property rights as the common foundation of both economics and political philosophy, and the systematic reconstruction and conceptual integration of modern, marginalist economics and natural-law political philosophy into a unified moral science: libertarianism.” Available in both paperback and Kindle versions.
