Today is the 85th anniversary of the birth of Murray Newton Rothbard, one of the greatest economists of the Austrian school, philosophers of liberty, and individual anarchists who defined libertarianism and provided the theoretical framework for a free-market anarchism that is known as anarcho-capitalism today.

 

He certainly would be overjoyed and giddy about the events of the last two months seeing a rebirth of freedom across many regions of the globe. Moreover, he would be immensely satisfied by the spread of opposition toward military, political, and economic interventionism in the affairs of man.

His ideas today are even more alive than ever before as the truths of self-ownership, natural property rights, and universal ethics expand and create greater peace, liberty, and prosperity.
