Mount Rockwell

-Chris Rossini
Everyone knows of Lew Rockwell by his iconic site And as Robert Wenzel has pointed out on more than one occaision, Lew is "the greatest entrepreneur, ever, in the sphere of libertarian ideas." The Mises Institute is a living and ever-expanding testament to that statement.

One area that I want to focus on, in this mini-impromptu-tribute, is Lew's writing. regularly highlights the writing of other libertarians. I'm extremely proud to be among that group. However I'd like to take a minute to talk about his writing for a change.

Many years ago, I came across one of Lew's pieces and was shaken out of my Republican boots. Here was someone who didn't just nudge The State in one direction, or massage what The State does. Lew verbally and intellectually smashes everything The State stands for. I was so intrigued by what I was reading that I got hooked.
