Virtually all LRC readers know of the heroic efforts of the Mises Institute in making hundreds of rare and important books, and thousands of scholarly articles, available on-line. Generations of eager new students and readers will have this marvelous collection of the wisdom of the past and present available for study. But many of you may not be aware of another incredible website that has provided a phenomenal resource data bank at your fingertips. It is called Liberty Park, USA Foundation. Created by the amazing Michael L. Chadwick, the work of the Foundation is divided into various Institutes which concentrate upon a specific area of study.
There is the Christopher Columbus Institute for Discovery and Exploration; the William Bradford Institute for the Study of the Early Settlement of America; the Roger Williams Institute for Religious Liberty; the George Washington Institute for American Independence; the James Madison Institute for Republican Government; the John Jay Institute for Judicial Interpretation; the Alexander Hamilton Institute for International Trade; the Thomas Jefferson Institute for the Study of the Western Expansion of America; the Abraham Lincoln Institute for the Preservation of the Union; the William Paley Institute for Intelligent Design; the John William Burgon Institute for the Study of Ancient Manuscripts, Texts, and Papyri; the Benjamin Franklin Institute for the Study of World Empires; the John Hancock Institute for International Finance; the Nathan Hale Institute for Intelligence and Military Affairs; Nature First USA — which provides valuable information on organic farming, home and lawn care, natural healing, natural vitamins and natural pet products; and Star Wars – The Epic Battle Between Freedom and Tyranny in the Universe.
There are thousands of articles dealing with globalization, the economic meltdown, the Wall Street bailouts, the American Empire, NAFTA and managed trade, CIA covert operations, Federalism and State Sovereignty, Global Governance, the Fed, the World Bank, the BIS, the IMF, the history of the oil industry, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg Group, the Aspen Institute, etc., with authors ranging from Peter Schiff to Noam Chomsky.
Under the classification of “The Rise of the World Trade Federation,” Chadwich has compiled 148 rare books. Many of these titles are virtually unattainable elsewhere. Under “Global Governance in the Twenty-First Century,” he has made available 68 rare volumes.
In almost 40 years of ardent collecting of books I have obtained many of these titles by authors such as Murray N. Rothbard, Carroll Quigley, John T. Flynn, Werner Keller, Matthew Josephson, Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr., Ferdinand Lundberg, Frank Chodorov, Charles Higham, Antony C. Sutton, Frederick C. Howe, Charles Levinson, Samuel Blumenfeld, George Seldes, Anthony Kubek, Raoul Desvernine, Zygmund Dobbs, Garet Garrett, and Count Egon Caesar Corti, but here is “the mother lode,” all on-line and available for your reading pleasure.3:34 am on August 10, 2009 Email Charles Burris
