FEE's Jeffrey Tucker on Libertarian Outreach, 'The Young Pope' & More.
https://youtu.be/f1_Jt93-seE

Quote
In the 1940's libertarianism was a little known concept. But thanks to the Foundation of Economic Education (FEE) regularly featuring works by noted scholars like Ludwig von Mises, Milton Friedman, Henry Hazlitt, and George Stigler, the ideas of human liberty and freedom became more accessible and familiar to a larger audience. Today, we need to learn how popular culture can be used by libertarians to spread their ideas to a mainstream audience.

One thing I've noticed among the newer/younger activists is no knowledge or appreciation of the tough road that the pioneers of the modern libertarian movement encountered. Many, other than Ron Paul's recent campaign, only know of the new batch of celebratarians that seem to try to out edgy and take the most controversial positions, there by narrowing their reach down to the echo chamber of fellow kool-aid drinkers.

Rand Paul is becoming the go to counter balance these days. He has also emboldened others in the Senate.

When angry old man John McCain is saying "He Doesn't Have Any Real Influence" well... it means he is obviously having an influence.

A friend that is experienced with dealing with PTSD vets said he recognized the symptoms and behavior in McCain. He goes into the "fight or flight" mode easily. Crazy dang dinosaur.

So anyway the point of this post is that even though the missiles might be flying... The silver lining view is it differentiates the libertarian or constitutionalist position.

yea I happened upon the Mises institute a few years ago. I said "I knew other people thought like I did". I didn't know about the thread of people going back in history.
Tolstoy showed how the history of non-violence in the face of evil was covered up throughout the years.
I think decent libertarian thinkers will be buried by the media, their books will be banned and burned and each generation will have to uncover this stuff.
Maybe the old timers in our movement can keep connections with the younger ones and pass it along. :)
