Created a Monster

Email Print

I have created a monster. I just posted a reading list on free market anarchism on this blog, and I have been inundated with notes saying, in effect, “Moron, how could you not have included x, y, and z on your list?” You are an ignoramus on this subject. Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. Previously, I only attached a small sample of this magnificent literature mainly, but not entirely, limited to shorter works. I now offer a much longer listing in this regard, long enough to choke the proverbial horse. I doubt, now, that I have left much out but, if I have, let me know; I’m always willing to learn. I don’t necessarily agree, fully, with everything mentioned below, but they will all be of interest in this regard. Anyway, here goes:
