The Rebirth of LIBERTY

[cross-posted at Austro-Athenian Empire]

1. Shawn Wilbur is God!

He has just completed posting the entire run of Benjamin Tucker’s Liberty in PDF form. Details here.

At the height of its popularity Liberty had a circulation of perhaps 600. Now, thanks to Shawn, it is accessible to millions worldwide.

The interface is bare-bones at the moment, but Shawn has plans for text-search capacity and other cool stuff.

As he urges: “download, download, download!” to ensure that “there is never again any question of Liberty not being available.”

I’ve also hailed the advent of Liberty on the Mises Blog.

2. Another gift from Shawn Wilbur: a list of Proudhon texts available on Google Books.

You may ask: What’s so special about that? Can’t anyone compile such a list by going to Google Books and doing an author search on Proudhon?

No. Having tussled with the unpredictable quirks of Google Books myself, I can sympathise with the woes Shawn describes here and here.

3. On an entirely unrelated topic, those planning to attend the Alabama Philosophical Society may need a reminder that the deadline for submitting a paper is just over two weeks away.
