    Out of Step

    Out of Step Frank Chodorov was one of the greats, and he had a gigantic influence on the free market intellectuals of the 1950s until his role was submerged by the emergent cold warriors of the late 1950s. Because he was an isolationist, he was declared not to be read. But read anyway. He was one of the best stylists of his time. Kick off the discussion!

    Narrative Non-Fiction in Libertarianism and Economics

    What are your favorite articles and books that use the method of narrative nonfiction in libertarianism or economics — telling a specific story to illustrate a general theory? I’m looking for some more examples for tomorrow night’s Writer’s Corner show with @BKmarcus . Personally, I love Jeffrey Tucker’s “Five Years of Gas Can Hell!” He lures your brain in with 7 paragraphs of self-deprecating humor before he even touches the theoretical or political implications. (Self-promotion welcomed.)

    Memoirs of a Superfluous Man

    Memoirs of a Superfluous Man This book sneaks up on you. It is slow going but enormously powerful. One of its main messages: reject nationalism. Move and travel. Make your country anywhere where your heart can be happy. Nock was an American through and through but he knew that the core of America is not geography but freedom itself. In the course of the narrative, then, we find tributes to lovely places all over the world. Nock also trains us to rethink what we thought we knew about war, government, family, religion, and more. This is adult reading, for sure, but penetrating in every way. Kick off the discussion! Questions, comments, observations or elaborations?
