Today marks the birthday of Ludwig von Mises, and day #2 of our Annual Fall Campaign.

Mises was the most important scholar of the twentieth century. He revolutionized our understanding of economic science as a powerful champion of liberty and property and remains one of the greatest enemies of socialism.

In the streets of American cities, we are seeing what Mises feared: a generation of modern barbarians, groomed by our universities to reject property rights and engage in socialist destruction. It is a direct failing of our schools, of our political parties, and of all Western institutions that have ignored his warnings.

This is why our work is so important, and why we need your support. Become a Sustaining Member today for just $5 a month, or join or renew your Membership for $60, and you will receive our timely booklet The Dollar Dilemma by Ron Paul. We will also list you on mises.org as a Supporter!

A small gift of just $5 or $10 today makes a difference. A monthly recurring gift is even better, and helps us sustain and plan for our mission. Hunter Lewis, a generous supporter of the Institute, offers to match all donations during our Fall Campaign, so your contribution will go that much further.

Our mission is simple: keep lit the torch of civilized society that Ludwig von Mises has passed down to us.

The genius of Mises is that these words are just as true today as the day they were penned. "No one can find a safe way out for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interests, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle. None can stand aside with unconcern; the interests of everyone hang on the result. Whether he chooses or not, every man is drawn into the great historical struggle, the decisive battle into which our epoch has plunged us. Help us stand for civilization."

Help us stand for liberty. Help us stand for Ludwig von Mises. Please donate today.

Mises Institute
The Mises Institute, founded in 1982, teaches the scholarship of Austrian economics, freedom, and peace. The liberal intellectual tradition of Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973) and Murray N. Rothbard (1926-1995) guides us. Accordingly, we seek a profound and radical shift in the intellectual climate: away from statism and toward a private property order.
