Description

Author, TV personality, and rabble-rouser Michael Malice joins me to discuss what it was like to have award winning graphic novelist Harvey Pekar write a book about him, why he quit a lucrative career to be a writer (even though he doesn’t love writing), the experience of self-publishing a “true” unauthorized autobiography of Kim Jong Il, and why he’s like Batman.

You can find Michael’s work at michaelmalice.com.

  • I’ve just published my first article on my publishing site, news.Liberty.me –  and I’m very excited. When I went to view the article after hitting “publish”, I noticed my sidebar is kind of bare.   Anyway to add anything there, such as a blogroll or archives link, or anything? thank you!

  • I am happy to announce that Vulgus Press is not up and running! Vulgus = of the people. Yes, that’s you and me. The crew at Vulgus are voluntaryists committed to a non-political and self-sustaining lifestyle. Vulgus Press opens its e-doors to offer material that can be found nowhere else – original new works and forgotten old ones. Too many heroes of liberty are unsung, today and from the past. Too many issues are undiscussed or dissolve into intellectual brawls. Vulgus applauds the heroes and presents the controversial analysis. Much of the material will be free to all; some will be for sale. Our first published book for sale is Wendy McElroy’s new “Rape Culture” Hysteria: Fixing the Damage Done to Men and Women. It dissects ‘social justice’ and confronts a political threat to every college student and sexually active adult. An original image depicting men and women in harmony is available on merchandise in the Vulgus Press e-store. http://www.cafepress.com/vulguspress Our first free book is a biography of the early years of the publisher Raymond Cyrus Hoiles: R.C. Hoiles: The Everyman of Excellence. http://www.vulgus.org/page.php?bk=11 Despite building the most successful libertarian publishing empire in history, Hoiles’ story has never been told. (His correspondence with Ludwig von Mises is also available on the site for free.) An original image depicting this unsung hero is available on merchandise in the Vulgus Press store. http://www.cafepress.com/vulguspress We also plan to offer a range of services in the active practice of daily freedom. For example, we have lined up interactive support from an expert on how to design and build Small Homes. We’ll expand according to market feedback which means according to feedback from you. Vulgus Press returns liberty to the street and kitchen table where it belongs because that’s where working people gather. Liberty does not come from politics or academia. It lives in parents who get up every day to provide a better future for their children; it grows with those who act to grasp their own destinies; it beams from the face of anyone with pride of accomplishment. Liberty thrives in the practical solutions to every day problems. We value your companionship on this first step of our journey. Come: * read the free material and, perhaps, make a donation * browse the goods for sale in our store * share your ideas for how we should grow, what would benefit you * introduce yourself by contacting http://www.vulgus.org/contact.php Vulgus Press salutes you for the same reason the elites of the world fear and need you: you are the engine that drives the world. You are liberty. The Vulgus Crew

  • It used to be the case that publishing an article gave 10 karma. I just published one and this did not happen. I also noticed a few days ago that 60 karma suddenly disappeared from my total. What is happening?

  • I’ve only been a member of this site a few hours but it seems a lot of you, like me, are fans of Rick Rule and investors that share similar contrarian investment philosophies, well what’s more hated in the market than North Korea? This is a video with great insights from contrarian investor Jim Rogers on the increasing liberalisation of markets in North Korea and the potential opportunities for ballsy contrarians especially considering there is no stock market so you will have to go there directly to do business.

  • I asked about your favorite comic books (and expected a flood of replies!), but I forgot to mention what may be the most important comic book in our tradition. Yesterday, the Libertarian Liquidationist reminded us of THE comic book for libertarians: The Berlin Batman, in which an alternate-history version of the Dark Knight tries to foil the Nazi’s confiscation of Ludwig von Mises’s papers. I learned about this post because the LL includes a link to an old blog post of mine, in which I quote Brian Doherty and link to Paul Cantor on this perfect storm of pop culture and Austrolibertarian history.
