Last Post on Harry

Sharon Harris remembers Harry Browne:

I am so grateful that he was able to be at the event, where he delivered his last two speeches. Upon receiving a stating ovation, he said, "I wish I could return the favor, as YOU are the ones deserving the praise."

If I sound like a fan -- well I am!

Anthony Gregory remembers Harry Browne:

You are a libertarian because "you're willing to tolerate anything that's peaceful, and you practice the principle of live and let live – opposing the initiation of force (violence) against anyone for any purpose.”

John Seiler remembers Harry Browne:

And imagine what America would be like of Browne had won in 1996 instead of Clinton and in 2000 instead of Bush: no war on Serbia in 1999, in which Clinton murdered 5,000 Christians to turn over Kosovo to Albanian terrorists with ties to al Qaeda; no Iraq War Quagmire under Bush; no Monicagate or Traitors' ("Patriot") Act. No illegal eavesdropping, record federal deficits and debt, rampant inflation.

Instead, we've had nine years of disaster and malaise. Harry will be missed.

Here are just a few of Harry's great articles:

When Will We Learn (written 9/12/01)

Why I Am Obsessed with War

I Love America. Do You?

One of Harry's mysterious mentors was a guy by the name of Andrew Galambos (a libertarian educational entrepreneur in Southern California in the 1960s with his Free Enterprise Institute). I had never heard of this guy until Harry died a few days ago. Harry's article, Andrew Galambos - the Unknown Libertarian is very intriguing.
