    New Liberty Oriented Publishing Site!

    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

    The Rise and Fall of Society

    The Rise and Fall of Society This book is one of the best expositions of economics and politics ever written. It was Chodorov’s last book and the one most overlooked. It’s tragic. It’s great. It explains central economic ideas from the Austrian tradition, and offers up a highly sophisticated theory of the state and its operations. It is one of the books that cannot be overlooked.

Description

Can we live full, free, and prosperous lives in these times, starting now? McElroy says that we can and we must. She presents a new way of thinking about how to build civilization even when it is so under attack. In her view, the worst mistake we can make is to allow our lives to be consumed by politics and the awful realities that surround us. We must instead surround ourselves by people and things we truly love. The best way to fight back, she says, is to find and build freedom for ourselves. We must discover the art of being free. Join Jeffrey Tucker for a discussion of this book Sunday, November 2nd at 8pm ET and learn how you too can live a freer life!
