Lew Rockwell, Chairman and Founder of the Mises Institute, delivered a moving message at our event in Boston, last week. Entitled "Our Prospects are Bright", Lew's talk serves to remind us that the future of true liberalism was much darker during the life of Ludwig von Mises.
For most of the 20th century, only a handful of libertarian activists existed. Today, millions around the world interact and spread the message using digital platforms that would have been unthinkable even when Mises died in the early 1970s. Our ideas grow in popularity, while the tired Democrats and Republicans struggle to maintain legitimacy and relevancy. Rather than lament politics and the state, we should be heartened by how far we've come—and go forward confidently.
