Spread the Word of Liberty Far and Wide!
“The historical context illustrates a point often overlooked: modern libertarianism was born not in reaction to socialism or leftism – though it is certainly anti-leftist (as the term is commonly understood) and antisocialist. Rather, libertarianism in the American historical context came into being in response to the statism of conservatism and its selective celebration of a conservative-style central planning.” – Llewellyn H. Rockwell Jr., "The Rothbardian Way" [May 20, 2006]

Hitler’s Dream

        “I traveled through Germany a decade after World War Two.  The countryside was scarred and the cities were full of rubble.  In those days, as Germany crawled out from the ashes, even a very young American was tolerated as he asked questions about Hitler and fascism.  ‘How did it happen?’ I continually inquired.
        “No one with whom I talked accepted responsibility for the Third Reich.  Evidently, no one had voted for Hitler, no one wanted him in power, no one had ever cheered for him at rallies and no one understood how a culture that had produced Beethoven and Bernkasteler Doktor had also produced a vengeful, hysterical Fuhrer.  Where had the spirit of tolerance and mutual respect gone?  Hitler had turned dreams into nightmares; but how?  People seemed mystified by their own history, almost speechless.  But one conversation sticks in my mind to this day, a talk with a former SS officer who ran a cafe in Berlin.  ‘Hitler divided us and then offered to save us,’ he said.  ‘That’s how fascism works.’
        “I ran some pretty dumb risks when I was in Germany back in the Fifties.  I drove through East Germany, for example, going off the autobahn illegally, dodging Russian troops and East German security police, checking out places that were off limits to Americans: Eisenach and Liepzig and Magdeburg and other cities and towns.  I was 19 years old, an adventurous college kid who was checking out a Communist superstate and loving every minute of it.
        “A lot of people were afraid to talk with me, but among those who would, the refrain was the same: We don’t know how it happened, we weren’t prepared for Hitler, he surprised us.” - Asa Baber

“Those who govern must also obey the law, the law for governments.  All governments are subject to law—the natural law.  Beyond that, they may have their particular constitutions which establish the laws for those who govern.  Rigorous adherence to these is necessary for government to be limited so that the citizenry may be free."- Clarence B.
