• Two Funny Comments at the AERC

    At the 2013 Austrian Economics Research Conference, the best such program the Mises Institute has ever held, a friend said:

    It used to be easy to be a Rockwellian. You just had to be an anarcho-capitalist. Now you have to wear barefoot shoes and be thin, too.

    He also told me he was visiting a significant rancher in West Texas, and when the subject of expatriation came up, the rancher said:

    Lew Rockwell is my canary in the coalmine. As long as he’s here, I’m here. If he ever leaves, I’m gone, and I’m taking a whole bunch of people with me.

    UPDATE from Ryan McMaken:

    I’ve often thought this, too: “If Lew hasn’t been arrested yet, I’m probably okay for now.”

    UPDATE Make that 3 comments. Another friend looked me up and down and said, “Wow, it looks like the De Coster plan really works!”
