The Foreign Policy of the Old Right

The Journal of Libertarian Studies

The categories of “right” and “left” have been changing so rapidly in recent years in America that it becomes difficult to recall what the labels stood for not very long ago. In the case of the left, this have become common knowledge, and we are all familiar with the contracts between “Old Left” and “New Left”, as well as with the rapid changes that the “new” Left itself has been undergoing. But in the case of the right-wing, which has rarely been an object of careful scrutiny by journalists or historians, no such categories have come into play.

What is the Mises Institute?

The Mises Institute is a non-profit organization that exists to promote teaching and research in the Austrian School of economics, individual freedom, honest history, and international peace, in the tradition of Ludwig von Mises and Murray N. Rothbard. 

Non-political, non-partisan, and non-PC, we advocate a radical shift in the intellectual climate, away from statism and toward a private property order. We believe that our foundational ideas are of permanent value, and oppose all efforts at compromise, sellout, and amalgamation of these ideas with fashionable political, cultural, and social doctrines inimical to their spirit.
