From Ron Paul to Murray Rothbard: My Road to the Mises Institute

•, By Jo Ann Cavallo

It all started with watching the 2012 Republican primary debates on tv with my son and being blown away by Ron Paul. At the time, I was writing a book on the Italian Renaissance romance epic, and I kept getting distracted from my work to follow anything Ron Paul related on the internet. So when I saw a piece entitled "I hate Ron Paul" by a fellow named Walter Block, I immediately clicked on it ready to become enraged. But it started out: "Before the Paul campaign of 2012, I was a reasonably productive researcher and writer. Nowadays, that has all changed: I have become a Ron Paul junkie." A kindred spirit! I suppressed the urge to contact Walter right then and there, but after reading another article by him on libertarianism and the environment, I gave in and sent him an email.
