student, at one point, of Ayn Rand
bio by Lew Rockwell - *Ethics Of Liberty was his moral defense. "Liberty (Freedom) of the individual," Rothbard wrote, is "not only a great moral good in itself" but "also as the necessary condition for the flowering of all the other goods that mankind cherishes": virtue, the arts and sciences, economic prosperity, civilization itself. "Out of liberty, stem the glories of civilized life."
