Ralph Raico and the Circle Bastiat
In my catch-up this afternoon after two weeks away, I came across a new and delightful online audio lecture by Ralph Raico from last year's Mises University. Ralph talks about the 1950s and early 1960s, his friendship with Murray Rothbard and other members of the Mises and Bastiat Circles, his respect for Ayn Rand (with serious reservations about her "secondhanders," like the Brandens and Leonard Peikoff), the Taft campaign of 1952, etc. Wonderful stuff and well worth hearing. You'll find it right here.
