  3. Alan Bock
  4. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Bock
  5. Alan W. Bock (1943 – May 18, 2011) was an American libertarian author. He was a senior editorial writer and former editorial page editor for the Orange County Register for over 25 years.

  8. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Brudnoy
  9. David Brudnoy (June 5, 1940 – December 9, 2004) was an American talk radio host in Boston from 1976 to 2004. His radio talk show aired on WBZ radio. He was known for espousing his libertarian views on a wide range of political issues, in a manner that was courteous. Thanks to WBZ's wide signal reach, he gained a following from across the United States as well as Canada. On December 9, 2004, he succumbed to Merkel cell carcinoma after it had metastasized to his lungs and kidneys.
  11. Frank Chodorov
  12. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Chodorov
  13. Frank Chodorov (February 15, 1887 – December 28, 1966) was an American member of the Old Right, a group of libertarian thinkers who were non-interventionist in foreign policy and opposed both the American entry into World War II and the New Deal. He was called by Ralph Raico "the last of the Old Right greats."[1]
  15. Ralph de Toledano
  16. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ralph_de_Toledano
  17. Ralph de Toledano (born Tangiers, Morocco, August 14, 1916 – died Bethesda, Maryland, February 3, 2007) was a major figure in the conservative movement in the United States throughout the second half of the 20th century. A friend of Richard Nixon's, he was a journalist and editor of Newsweek and the National Review, and the author of 26 books, including two novels and a book of poetry. Alongside his political contributions, he also wrote about music, particularly jazz.
  19. Aaron Director
  20. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aaron_Director
  21. Aaron Director (September 21, 1901 – September 11, 2004), a celebrated professor at the University of Chicago Law School, played a central role in the development of the Chicago school of economics. Together with his better known brother-in-law, Nobel laureate Milton Friedman, Director influenced a generation of jurists, including Robert Bork, Richard Posner, Antonin Scalia and Chief Justice William Rehnquist.
  23. Lanny Friedlander
  24. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/07/us/07friedlander.html?_r=0
  25. Lanny Friedlander, who with little more than a typewriter and a stack of paper founded the libertarian magazine Reason in his college dorm room in 1968 and ran it briefly before dropping out of sight for the next 40 years, died on March 19 in Lowell, Mass. He was 63. The cause was a heart attack, his lawyer, George H. Murphy, said. Perhaps fittingly for a man who was an enigma for so long, Mr. Friedlander’s death commanded little notice outside libertarian circles. In its dorm room days, Reason never attained a circulation of more than a few hundred copies per issue. Today, the magazine is a glossy publication with a monthly circulation of about 50,000; its Web site receives four million visits a month. Reason.tv broadcasts original and archival video programming online.
  27. Milton Friedman
  28. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milton_friedman
  29. Milton Friedman (July 31, 1912 – November 16, 2006) was an American economist, statistician, and writer who taught at the University of Chicago for more than three decades. He was a recipient of the 1976 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences, and is known for his research on consumption analysis, monetary history and theory, and the complexity of stabilization policy. As a leader of the Chicago school of economics, he profoundly influenced the research agenda of the economics profession. A survey of economists ranked Friedman as the second most popular economist of the twentieth century after John Maynard Keynes, and The Economist described him as "the most influential economist of the second half of the 20th century ... possibly of all of it."
  31. Ronald Hamowy
  32. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronald_Hamowy
  33. Ronald Hamowy (/həˈmaʊi/; April 17, 1937 – September 8, 2012) was a Canadian academic, known primarily for his contributions to political and social thought. At the time of his death, he was Professor Emeritus of Intellectual History, the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Hamowy was closely associated with the political ideology of libertarianism and his writings and scholarship place particular emphasis on individual liberty and the limits of state action in a free society. He is associated with a number of prominent American libertarian organizations. It can be fairly stated that Hamowy was personally acquainted, to varying degrees, with most of the leading classical liberal and libertarian thinkers who lived during the latter half of the 20th century.
  35. Irv Homer
  36. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irv_Homer
  37. Irving "Irv" Homer (May 29, 1924-June 24, 2009) was an American radio talk show host and television personality, primarily in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania market.
  39. Ze'ev Vladimir Jabotinsky
  40. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zev_Jabotinsky
  41. Ze'ev Jabotinsky MBE (Hebrew: זאב ז'בוטינסקי‎; born Vladimir Yevgenyevich Zhabotinsky (Russian: Влади́мир Евге́ньевич Жаботи́нский) (18 October 1880 – 4 August 1940), was a Revisionist Zionist leader, author, poet, orator, soldier, and founder of the Jewish Self-Defense Organization in Odessa. With Joseph Trumpeldor, he co-founded the Jewish Legion of the British army in World War I and later established a number of Jewish organizations such as Beitar, Hatzohar, and the Irgun.
  43. Robert Nozick
  44. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Nozick
  45. Robert Nozick (/ˈnoʊzɪk/; November 16, 1938 – January 23, 2002) was an American philosopher who was most prominent in the 1970s and 1980s. He was a professor at Harvard University. He is best known for his book Anarchy, State, and Utopia (1974), a libertarian answer to John Rawls' A Theory of Justice (1971). His other work involved decision theory and epistemology.
  47. Dyanne Petersen
  49. Ayn Rand
  50. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ayn_rand
  51. Ayn Rand (/ˈaɪn ˈrænd/; born Alisa Zinov'yevna Rosenbaum; February 2 [O.S. January 20] 1905 – March 6, 1982) was an American novelist, philosopher, playwright, and screenwriter. She is known for her two best-selling novels, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged, and for developing a philosophical system she called Objectivism. Born and educated in Russia, Rand moved to the United States in 1926. She had a play produced on Broadway in 1935–1936. After two early novels that were initially unsuccessful in America, she achieved fame with her 1943 novel, The Fountainhead. Literary critics received Rand's fiction with mixed reviews, and academia generally ignored or rejected her philosophy, though academic interest has increased in recent decades. The Objectivist movement attempts to spread her ideas, both to the public and in academic settings. She has been a significant influence among libertarians and American conservatives.
  53. David Ricardo
  54. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Ricardo
  55. David Ricardo (18 April 1772 – 11 September 1823) was a British political economist. He was one of the most influential of the classical economists, along with Thomas Malthus, Adam Smith, and James Mill. He began his professional life as a broker and financial market speculator. He amassed a considerable personal fortune, largely from financial market speculation and, having retired, bought a seat in the U.K. Parliament. He held his parliamentary seat for the last four years of his life. Perhaps his most important legacy is his theory of comparative advantage, which suggests that a nation should concentrate solely on those industries in which it is most internationally competitive while abandoning other industries and trading with other countries to obtain products which are no longer produced nationally. In essence, Ricardo promoted the idea of extreme industry specialization by nations, to the point of dismantling competitive and profitable national industries. Ricardo's theory of Comparative Advantage attempted to prove, using simple mathematics, that industry specialization and international trade always produce positive results. This theory expanded on the concept of absolute advantage which does not advocate specialization and international trade in all cases. Ricardo's theory of comparative advantage has been challenged by, among others, Joan Robinson and Piero Sraffa, but remains the cornerstone of the argument in favor of international free trade. The theory of comparative advantage was the forerunner of globalization via trade which is guiding economic policy in the OECD today.
  57. Murray Rothbard
  58. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murray_Rothbard
  59. Murray Newton Rothbard (/ˈmʌri ˈrɑːθbɑrd/; March 2, 1926 – January 7, 1995) was an American heterodox economist of the Austrian School, a revisionist historian, and a political theorist(pp11, 286, 380) whose writings and personal influence played a seminal role in the development of modern libertarianism. Rothbard was the founder and leading theoretician of anarcho-capitalism, a staunch advocate of historical revisionism, and a central figure in the twentieth-century American libertarian movement. He wrote over twenty books on anarchist theory, revisionist history, economics, and other subjects. Rothbard asserted that all services provided by the "monopoly system of the corporate state" could be provided more efficiently by the private sector and wrote that the state is "the organization of robbery systematized and writ large." He called fractional reserve banking a form of fraud and opposed central banking. He categorically opposed all military, political, and economic interventionism in the affairs of other nations.(pp4–5, 129) According to the libertarian Hans-Hermann Hoppe, "There would be no anarcho-capitalist movement to speak of without Rothbard."
  61. Irv Rubin
  62. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irv_Rubin
  63. Irving D. Rubin (April 12, 1945 – November 13, 2002) was chairman of the Jewish Defense League (JDL) from 1985 to 2002. He died in jail when awaiting trial on charges of conspiracy to bomb private and government property. Before joining the Libertarian Party in 2000, Irv Rubin was an active Republican, and served as a page at the 1964 Republican National Convention, at which Barry Goldwater was nominated to run for the presidency. Irv Rubin’s joining the Libertarian Party was greeted with shock by many members because of the allegations of terrorism against both the JDL and Rubin himself. Membership requires a pledge to not "initiate force." In June 2001 Rubin let it be known that he was considering running for governor of California on the Libertarian ticket, renewing controversies among libertarians.
  65. Aaron Russo
  66. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aaron_Russo
  67. Aaron Russo (February 14, 1943 – August 24, 2007) was an American entertainment businessman, film producer and director, and political activist. He was best known for producing such movies as Trading Places, Wise Guys, and The Rose. Later in life, he created various Libertarian-leaning political documentaries including Mad as Hell and America: Freedom to Fascism. After a six-year battle with bladder cancer, Russo died on August 24, 2007.
  69. Anna Jacobson Schwartz
  70. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Jacobson_Schwartz
  71. Anna Jacobson Schwartz (November 11, 1915 – June 21, 2012) was an American economist at the National Bureau of Economic Research in New York City, and according to Paul Krugman "one of the world's greatest monetary scholars". She was best known for her collaboration with Milton Friedman on A Monetary History of the United States, 1867–1960, published in 1963, which laid a large portion of the blame for the Great Depression at the door of the Federal Reserve System. She was president of the Western Economic Association International in 1988.
  73. Julian Simon
  74. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julian_Simon
  75. Julian Lincoln Simon (February 12, 1932 – February 8, 1998) was a professor of business administration at the University of Maryland and a Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute at the time of his death, after previously serving as a longtime economics and business professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Simon wrote many books and articles, mostly on economic subjects. He is best known for his work on population, natural resources, and immigration. His work covers cornucopian views on lasting economic benefits from natural resources and continuous population growth, even despite limited or finite physical resources, empowered by human ingenuity, substitutes, and technological progress. His works are also cited by libertarians against government regulation. He died at the age of 65 of a heart attack in Chevy Chase, Maryland.
  77. Aaron Wildavsky
  78. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aaron_Wildavsky
  79. Aaron Wildavsky (May 31, 1930 – September 4, 1993) was an American political scientist known for his pioneering work in public policy, government budgeting, and risk management.
  81. Ludwig Von Mises
  82. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ludwig_Von_Mises
  83. Ludwig Heinrich Edler von Mises (German: [ˈluːtvɪç fɔn ˈmiːzəs]; 29 September 1881 – 10 October 1973) was a philosopher, Austrian School economist, sociologist, and classical liberal. He became a prominent figure in the Austrian School of economic thought and is best known for his work on praxeology, a study of human choice and action. Fearing a Nazi takeover of Switzerland, where he was living at the time, Mises immigrated to the United States in 1940. Mises' thought has exerted significant influence on the libertarian movement in the United States in the mid-20th century.
  85. Aaron Zelman
  86. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aaron_S._Zelman
  87. Aaron S. Zelman was an American gun rights advocate and author. Zelman was best known as the founder and executive director of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JFPO), which he founded in 1989 in Wisconsin. He was an author and co-author of books and articles about gun rights, on which he took an absolutist stance on the meaning of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. In addition, he produced and co-produced films on the subject. News of Zelman's death was recognized by a newspaper serving Wisconsin's Jewish community, as well as libertarian and radical right groups. Alex Jones' website Infowars.com called Zelman a "Second Amendment champion," and The New American, published by the John Birch Society, asked "Who can replace him?"

  91. Libertarianism: To Jews
  92. http://chelm.freeyellow.com/Jewish_index.html
  94. The Jewish religion stresses the value of individual free will and the choices that come along with it.
  96. Judaism entrusts consequences as our master teacher. In the diaspora, Jews realized that they would have to be constantly on the move as a result of virulent anti-Semitism that seemed to poison much of Europe and the Middle East for most of history. As a result, Jewish families traveled from country to country seeking the freedom to practice their faith. This resulted in a lack of trust of their own governments and tremendous self-sufficiency. This independence has kept Jewish communities alive for centuries.
  98. It is no accident that the founders of Western liberties and free-market capitalism were generally either Jewish or quoted Jewish scriptures approvingly. The Jewish ideal is capitalism (liberty) tempered by charity and sympathy.

  102. Free to Lose: Jews, Whites, and Libertarianism
  103. http://www.toqonline.com/blog/free-to-lose/
  105. My purpose here is not to determine whether libertarianism is, like the Frankfurt School, a Jewish intellectual movement. This requires more extensive treatment than can be given here. Here I will examine, firstly, why free-market libertarian ideas have held a strong attraction to a prominent subset of Jewish intellectuals; and secondly, I will discuss the practical effect of libertarian economic and social policies on European-derived populations.

  109. Libertarianism and White Racial Nationalism
  110. http://www.toqonline.com/blog/libertarianism-and-white-racial-nationalism/
  117. Greg Johnson, the previous editor of TOQ, had the wonderful idea for an issue on how Libertarianism intersects with issues of White racial nationalism. The topic is an important one. Unlike explicit assertions of White identity and interests, libertarianism is considered part of the conservative mainstream. It doesn’t ruffle the feathers of the multicultural powers that be. Indeed, as discussed in several of the articles here—particularly the article by Simon Krejsa, libertarianism is an ideology of national dissolution that would greatly exacerbate problems resulting from immigration.

  121. Russo Redux (Sort Of)
  122. http://www.vanguardnewsnetwork.com/20070828/russo-redux-sort-of/
  124. It wasn’t surprising to learn that the Jewish filmmaker Aaron Russo – who died a few days ago and whose death was mentioned by VNN – wasn’t merely a libertarian but was a libertarian activist who was once a presidential candidate. Why wasn’t it surprising? Because libertarianism is a Jewish movement posing as a freedom movement [1]. Libertarianism consists of conflicting, race-denying, individualistic ideas. It was designed to attract and brainwash certain gentiles who wouldn’t follow other political movements, such as the Jewish-led “liberal” a.k.a. “progressive” movement. Do you think it’s just a coincidence that people such as Ayn Rand, Murray Rothbard, Ludwig Von Mises, Milton Friedman, Robert Nozick, Frank Chodorov, Aaron Director, Julian Simon – i.e., most of the big names in the libertarian movement – were Jews? Even today, many of the top people in libertarianism are Jewish. The ones who aren’t Jewish simply don’t understand the nature of it. Sadly, libertarianism has crept into conservative circles, further Jewing an already-too-Jewed movement (i.e., “neoconservatism” and “Judeo-Christianity”). Libertarianism was created to prevent gentiles from thinking and acting in a collective manner. Like communism and feminism, it’s another Jewish “-ism.”

  130. Race & Groups: The Libertarian Blind Spot
  131. http://www.thebirdman.org/Index/Lbtn/Lbtn-LibertBlindSpot.html
  133. John Donne could never have been a libertarian because he believed that "No man is an island", while libertarians seem to prefer a sort of reverse philosophy which holds that every man is an island. In particular, libertarians are so busy celebrating "the individual" that they give little or no attention to a phenomenon which is at least as important as individuals on the political landscape, namely, groups. It is true, of course, that groups can be regarded as collections of individuals, but it would be foolish to try to discuss politics purely on the basis of the behavior of individuals and without reference to groups, just as it would be foolish to try to describe the operation of a computer purely on the basis of the behavior of individual molecules and without reference to such important molecular groups as chips, wires, cards and hard disks.

  137. "Nation and race do not coincide; there is no nation of pure blood. All peoples have arisen from a mixture of races."
  138. – Ludwig von Mises, Nation, State, and Economy, page 10
  140. "The fundamental discrepancies in worldview and patterns of behavior do not correspond to differences in race, nationality or class affiliation."
  141. – Ludwig von Mises, Human Action, page 87
  143. "It is neither natural nor necessary that the members of the same race or the inhabitants of the same country cooperate with one another more closely than with members of other races or inhabitants of other countries. The ideas of race solidarity and racial hatred are no less ideas than any other ideas, and only where they are accepted by the individuals do they result in corresponding action."
  144. – Ludwig von Mises, The Ultimate Foundation of Economic Science, page 81
  146. "There cannot be the slightest doubt that migration barriers diminish the productivity of human labor."
  147. – Ludwig von Mises, Liberalism, page 139
  149. "The closed-door policy is one of the root causes of our wars."
  150. – Ludwig von Mises, Omnipotent Government, page 263
  152. "Libertarians have generally welcomed immigration, and on very simple grounds. According to the “non-aggression axiom,” it is wrong to aggress against the person or property of anyone who has not himself committed such aggression. To restrict the free movement of peoples across borders is thus to engage in unjustified aggression, and is therefore anathema."
  153. – Tom Woods, Liberty and Immigration
  155. "We call for the elimination of all restrictions on immigration, the abolition of the Immigration and Naturalization Service and the Border Patrol, and a declaration of full amnesty for all people who have entered the country illegally."
  156. – Official Libertarian Political Platform, 2004 election cycle
