David Nolan, RIP


As many readers doubtless already know, David Nolan, a founder of the Libertarian Party, died yesterday in Tucson, Arizona. He was on the side of the angels, so to speak, on the issues so many of us care about. He was also a model of civility: he could disagree with others without purging or smearing them — a vanishing quality in our world. I’ve been pleased to see so many tributes (particularly on Facebook) by young people who were inspired by him. Here he is on the Lew Rockwell Show in December 2008. Rest in peace.

Tom Woods, a senior fellow of the Mises Institute, is the author of a dozen books, most recently Real Dissent: A Libertarian Sets Fire to the Index Card of Allowable Opinion. Tom's articles have appeared in dozens of popular and scholarly periodicals, and his books have been translated into a dozen languages. Tom hosts the Tom Woods Show, a libertarian podcast that releases a new episode every weekday. With Bob Murphy, he co-hosts Contra Krugman, a weekly podcast that refutes Paul Krugman's New York Times column.
