Lew is a great author but I was not that impressed by his speech. I think he's better at writing than speaking.

True. He has a rather monotonous delivery, not a rousing populist Ventura style. But I'll listen to it ALL DAY LONG! The man is brilliant and is educating millions. What a freedom fighter!! We all have our gifts. I was lucky enough to get to hear Rockwell, Woods, DiLorenzo, Sennholz, and several other Austrians at a conference once with my dtr. I told her we were in the presence of men who surpassed the Founders in the pursuit of truth and liberty.

What's some movie?..... there is an epic author who hides away... and a black inner city kid, whose meets him?

Sean Connery is the hiding author, and the black kid is... that guy who was in The Hurricane (as the canadian kid)

Anyone know what I'm talking about? LOL...

Anyway; in it - there is an exchange the kid is a good writer himself etc... he writes an article, they accuse him of plagiarism, but he had permission to write it (from the author - who is still in hiding)... anyway; the kid won't dob in the author; blah blah - the author shows up at his "trail / hearing for plaigarism" and reads out the kid's essay saying - no author should ever have to read their own work etc etc...

:p Could say the same with Rothwell. Better writer than speaker / reader

That said. I think you are a great guy but not that intelligent. I'm sure I'd like to hang out with you, but I'd prefer not to have to see your presumptious, meaningless opinions constantly.

This was probably the only time he grabbed my attention in his entire speech, but damn, it was a GREAT line.

You're referring to this movie:

I didn't find it priceless, it wasn't well executed in my honest opinion.

I agree, it was not one of his better speeches.

Here is Lew giving a talk at a Mises Circle,

You are replete with personal attacks and criticisms yet can't take any yourself. How hypocritical.

That shit is really getting annoying. Can somebody just shut up "Paul Delegate". He is obviously a troll. Matt don't let him wind you up. That's what the troll is trying to do.

If anyone is interested in reading the text that the Rothbard quote came from it's here (http://mises.org/story/3090).

I haven't read as much Rothbard as many people here but what I have read I like. He was a very insightful man, almost prophetic, to say the least.

The content was great, his delivery is academic and not fiery politician speak, though.

Check out the LRC podcast he does, when he's not in front of 10k people he is very pleasant to listen to.


I seriously love LRC podcasts =)

I happened to run into Lew leaving the Rally. I saw him walking by and yelled out LEW. And introduced myself. :cool:
