May 21 marks the 1983 death of Eric Hoffer, the “longshoreman philosopher.” He was best known for his 1951 The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements, which brilliantly analyzed movements that played prominent roles in world events during his lifetime.

Dan Beard used to be commissioner of the US Bureau of Reclamation. Now he's calling for the Bureau of Reclamation — the government agency that built dams throughout the west and controls water allocation to this day — to be abolished. The problem?

Contemporary supporters of an expanded role for government are increasingly moving away from calling themselves liberals toward referring to themselves Progressives, so it is worth considering what the ideology of Progressivism entails.

The world center of the Austrian School of economics and libertarian political and social theory
Introduction
The Ludwig von Mises Institute was founded in 1982 as the research and educational center of classical liberalism, libertarian political theory, and the Austrian School of economics. It serves as the world's leading provider of educational materials, conferences, media, and literature in support of the tradition of thought represented by Ludwig von Mises and the school of thought he enlivened and carried forward during the 20th century, which has now blossomed into a massive international movement of students, professors, professionals, and people in all walks of life. It seeks a radical shift in the intellectual climate as the foundation for a renewal of the free and prosperous commonwealth.
