Jeff Tucker talks to Lew Rockwell about the great libertarian writers of the early-mid 20th century.
It’s noted in this conversation that Murray Rothbard–a personal hero of mine whom I’ll talk about more in the future–was once asked by someone how to become a better writer. “Read Mencken,” he said, and I concur. There is a freshness and a fearlessness to Mencken–and to many other writers of that time period–that will knock the cobwebs out of anyone’s writing style. It’s a great contrast to what passes for writing in this, the Mealy-Mouthed Age.
