Comment: Well...

Well...

...I suppose I don't have any disagreement with the substance of the OP. No one "owns" the ideas central to libertarianism....though I'm not sure what value there is in denigrating the contributions of people like Mises et al. Here's a newsflash: most people aren't of the intellectual calibre of a Mises. If Mises had been smothered in his cradle, we very well may NOT have the body of knowledge we have now; we very well may NEVER have gained that knowledge. Such brilliant minds are few and far between. Shall we be a personality cult? Hell no. Shall we respect those personalities who have done so much for our cause, often at great personal risk and cost? Hell yes.
