    The greatest liberal who ever lived, died 45 years ago today

    DF8C382C-820E-467C-BA2D-92B0115B1231.jpeg Ludwig Von Mises is truly a forgotten hero of mankind. He was the last of the great classical liberals.

    In the past hundred years most of the world dabbled in communism and socialism. During the height in the early 1900's when even the United States seemed to be doomed. One man brought hope to the liberty movement. He actually calculated why socialism cannot work, which still has not been refuted almost 100 years later. While early in his lifetime Communism appeared to be successful, history proved Mises right.But Mises did not get to see this early on in his life, this didn’t stop him from fighting back with his ideas. Which the NAZI's thought was a bigger threat then the Allies. The hunt after him forced Mises to come to America, only to go on and write his biggest work yet known as “ human action”. His ideas were so powerful they influenced and changed every freedom loving political movement of this day. Whether you are Republican, conservative, libertarian, Ayn Rand Objectivist, constitutionalists, etc. not just in the U.S. but world wide. Mises played one of the most important roles in proving that while liberty is not perfect, it’s the best solution mankind has to offer.

    Thanks to Mises ideas and his students that advanced them, no one will ever loose a debate to socialism ever again. For that I am grateful

      You probably have indirectly. Much of the rhetoric that you hear about liberty or arguments against socialism from Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, Ted Cruz, Ron Paul, Ayn Rand, the national review, Rand Paul, Rush Limbaugh, etc...Comes from the ideas written by Mises.
