Activism built on education

Many of us, including myself, are sometimes guilty of leaping into certain areas of activism before having a complete grasp of the academic aspects involved.  During a tax day protest last week, I got into a debate with a lovely Keynesian (actually a really nice kid), and realized that understanding a concept on my own and understanding it to a level at which I can articulate to someone else in a convincing an intelligent manner are two different things entirely.

Luckily for me, Dr. Thomas C. Taylor’s An Introduction to Austrian Economics was only a click away, available completely free in pdf form thanks to the Ludwig von Mises Institute.  And, well, let’s just say I learned a lot.

For anyone who feels they might have trouble articulating the basics of Austrian theory, I’d highly recommend this read, available here.

Happy reading!
