Writes Tony Crisafulli:
“Thank you for all the good work you do at Lewrockwell.com. Your website has literally changed my life. Please allow me to share a few examples.
“I lost a total of 20 lbs over the last year and a half. The many articles covered on Lewrockwell.com introduced me to ancestral health. Implementing the paleo lifestyle covered in your letter reduced my waist size from a 38 to a 32. My stamina has significantly increased. I can now run six 100 meters in less than fifteen minutes. That should be fast enough to outrun most bureaucrats. I am in the best shape of my life at 42.
“You introduced me to the benefits of vitamin D a number of years ago. My family has taken the supplement with outstanding results. We no longer receive flu shots and no one has had the flu in 2 years.
“I now own a gun, unthinkable only a few years ago.
“My understanding of economics has far surpassed the knowledge gained while receiving my MBA. The Mises Institute and Lewrockwell.com have provided a sound education in liberty and economics. I’ve now gained enough knowledge to feel comfortable reading and understanding Mises’s Human Action.
“Lastly, you allowed me to see the government for what it is — brutal, immoral, and corrupt. This was no small change in my thinking. I, like many other Americans, worshiped war and the military. I was a closet Mercantilist.
“The hard hitting, but truthful, articles rattled my firmly held beliefs in government. I would refuse to visit your site from time to time because ‘government could not be that bad.’ But something kept nagging me and that nagging was the truth. The true that government is immoral and no amount of government is good. Of all the changes that I have undergone due to your newsletter and knowledge sharing, this is perhaps the most dramatic of all.
“I could go on, but I think you have a good idea of the impact you’ve had on me. There is no amount of money that I can place upon the positive change that I have gone through over the years that is a direct result of Lewrockwell.com.
