"Restoring the American Dream"

the intimidating tactics of others . . ."
Go to www.robertringer.com
to learn more about his thoughts & views.
Mr. Ringer is presently presenting a Liberty Education Interview series where he interviews many of the nation's leading conservatives and libertarians.
Robert J. Ringer was to Libertarians in the late 70's
what Rush H. Limbaugh, III was to Conservatives in the 90's
--the popular voice of their philosophy!
Ringer used books, while Limbaugh uses books, newsletters and radio.

Ayn Rand (1905-1982)
Philosopher, author, and avowed atheist
Defender of Capitalism and founder of philosophy of Objectivism.
Ayn Rand was one of the influences on the philosophy of my mentor, Robert J. Ringer.
Rand rejected the political doctrines of conservatism and libertarianism. Her works
are studied more by libertarians than by conservatives, because of her blunt atheism.
Although she declared herself a capitalist, an individualist and an Objectivist,
Libertarians claim her as one of their own.
"Who is John Galt?
One has to read and absorb "Atlas Shrugged"
to find the answer to that question.

Economist and author
Thomas Sowell is a brilliant man, some would say bordering on genius. To read his writings, and especially
to hear him speak, is one of the most enlightening and refreshing experiences one can encounter in life.
(He understands reality as well as anyone I've ever learned from.) His hard work in his
chosen field of economics and the development of cultures in history is on the highest level of scholarship.
Following are a list of just some of his books (I believe he has written somewhere in the neighborhood of 30 books at this point in his life): "Knowledge & Decisions", "Inside American Education", "Is Reality Optional?" (collected essays), "Marxism", "The Vision of the Anointed", "The Economics and Politics of Race", "A Conflict of Visions", "Compassion vs. Guilt" (collected essays), "Ethnic America", and his cultural trilogy -- "Race and Culture", "Migrations & Cultures" and "Conquests and Cultures". More recently, "The Quest For Cosmic Justice", Barbarians Inside the Gates & Other Controversial Essays" & "Controversial Essays" (both collected essays), "A Personal Odyssey" (memoirs), & "Basic Economics: A Citizen's Guide to the Economy".
I can not say enough about my admiration for this great
See my Letter #42 Hearts Similar, Minds Differ for my comments on the
high regard I have for Thomas Sowell.
Economist at the Hoover Institution
Stanford University; Standford, California

Ludwig von Mises
(the "greatest economist who ever lived"--in my opinion)
Mises was an exponent of what is called the Austrian School of Economics,
founded by Carl Menger (1840-1921) and continued
by his student Eugen von Bohm-Bawerk (1851-1914).
On this site read Mises' review of Bohm-Bawerk's book "Capital and Interest"
Mises advanced and built on his mentors' work and has since been
a strong influence on several American and European economists
over the years. Murray N. Rothbard was probably considered the top student of mises.

Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850)
French political economist and legislator
The Great 19th Century Economist: "The Law", "Economic Harmonies",
"Economic Sophisms", "Selected Essays on Political Economy".
Bastiat was one of the most gifted defenders of laissez-faire free trade in the 19th Century,
along with his British counterpart Richard Cobden.
Bastiat is probably best known
for his satirical 'Petition of the Candlemakers' (1845) in which the manufacturers of candles
plea for Parliament to pass a law forcing the shutting-up of all windows,
skylights, openings, holes, chinks, clefts and fissures through which the intolerable competition of the sun is bringing light inside houses free of charge, thus threatening to destroy a native industry affording employment directly and indirectly to thousands of people.
Bastiat used satire and irony
to expose the fallacies and sophistry of socialism and protectionism.
His booklet "The Law" is must reading for an introductory understanding of
political and economic freedom from the tyranny of socialism and socialists.
"The law perverted! And the police powers of the state perverted along with it!
The law, I say, not only turned from its proper purpose but made to follow an entirely
contrary purpose! The law become the weapon of every kind of greed!
Instead of checking crime, the law itself guilty of the evils it is supposed to punish!"
