Monstrous Regiment; The Deadly March of Feminism

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2018/09/...rous-regiment/

An oldie, but a goodie.

Rothbard was a smart man.

Re: Monstrous Regiment; The Deadly March of Feminism

And a modern take guaranteed to make rational people laugh and snowflakes cry (Warning- crude language, but probably the funniest thing you'll watch all month);

Great article. I liked this quote at the end. I think it explains why Trump won and how it was achieved.

"But I still think it was far better for the cause of liberty for the Regiment to receive this splendid setback. Especially because it shows that the masses can be reached by common sense over the heads of the arrogant media, which in this case virtually constituted a monolith. May this not be an indication that, short of the daunting and terribly long-range task of converting the intelligentsia and the media, that this opinion-molding elite can be short-circuited by a direct, “populist” appeal to the masses?"

Yes. It will be interesting to see if the populace has been energized to any real effect. And still more to see whether the effects (if any) are positive.

Rothbard some more. Like any real classic, this one is always timely.

Rothbard is a mainstay contributor/true thinker/communicator to the Mises institute. His works, along with other Mises institute publications, are heavily cited by Ron Paul.
