Meet Frank Chodorov! Old Right and non-socialist

Frank Chodorov (February 15, 1887–1966) was an American member of the Old Right, a group of libertarian thinkers who were non-interventionist in foreign policy (opposing American entry into World War II) and anti–New Deal. Ralph Raico has called him "the last of the Old Right greats."

Frank Chodorov was hailed for his witty and often sarcastic writings, in many of which he clearly and entertainingly explained why American socialists are out of touch with reality.

His witty writings can now be accessed at the Anti-Marxists Internet Archive E-Library.  There are five full-length books and two dozen book excerpts, and his manga opus, Out of Step (which includes the piece “About Socialism and Socialists”) can be downloaded as an EPUB to be read on your Kindle, Nook, or other e-reader device.

There are also other authors and EPUBs available to download absolutely FREE.  See the earlier blog entry for details.

Updates on Bastiat

Frédéric Bastiat (29 June 1801 – 24 December 1850) was a French classical liberal theorist, political economist, and member of the French assembly.

Bastiat asserted that the only purpose of government is to defend the right of an individual to life, liberty, and property. From this definition, Bastiat concluded that the law cannot defend life, liberty and property if it promotes socialist policies inherently opposed to these very things. In this way, he says, the law is perverted and turned against the thing it is supposed to defend.

The Anti-Marxists Internet Archive E-Library has updated its page on Bastiat to include several letters and essays, including his magna opus, That Which Is Seen and That Which Is Not Seen.  Bastiat had the foresight to see the harmful economic effects of socialism and central planning.  It's no coincidence that many harmful trends today are recognizable in this 150 year old classic.  Bastiat's works can be read online or downloaded to your computer or e-reader device.

Introducing Böhm-Bawerk!

Eugen Ritter von Böhm-Bawerk (February 12, 1851 in Brno – August 27, 1914 in Vienna, or Kramsach) was an Austrian economist who made important contributions to the development of the Austrian School of economics.

While studying to be a lawyer at the University of Vienna, he read Carl Menger's Principles of Economics. Though he never studied under Menger, he quickly became an adherent of his theories. Joseph Schumpeter said that Böhm-Bawerk "was so completely the enthusiastic disciple of Menger that it is hardly necessary to look for other influences." During his time at the Vienna university, he became good friends with Friedrich von Wieser, who later became Boehm-Bawerk's brother-in-law. After Vienna, he studied political economy and social science at the universities of Heidelberg, Leipzig and Jena, under Karl Knies, Wilhelm Roscher und Bruno Hildebrand.

He wrote extensive critiques of Karl Marx's economics in the 1880s and 1890s, and several prominent Marxists—including Rudolf Hilferding—attended his seminar in 1905-06. He returned to teaching in 1904, with a chair at the University of Vienna. He taught many students including Joseph Schumpeter, Ludwig von Mises and Henryk Grossman.

Eugen Böhm-Bawerk’s writings are now available at the Anti-Marxists Internet Archive e-library.  The AMIA highly recommends his book Karl Marx and the Close of His System, acclaimed by Austrian School economists and has yet to be effectively refuted by Marxist “thinkers.”

Introducing Ludwig Von Mises

Though the e-library will be under construction for quite some time, it already contains a wealth of knowledge in over a dozen authors and over a hundred books and articles.  The Anti-Marxists Internet Archive is proud to add the hailed Austrian economist Ludwig Von Mises to the e-library with ten full-length books, including Planned Chaos, Marxism Unmasked, The Anti-Capitalistic Mentality, and his manga opus Socialism.

Ludwig Von Mises is remembered not only for being one of the leading economists of all time, but is especially lauded for his ability to predict the exact downfall of the Soviet Union while it was still new under Lenin.

These books are available in their entirety and are waiting to be read.
