A lesson in History, Economics, and Public Speaking

"Archived from the live Mises.tv broadcast, this talk by Tom Woods was presented at the 2011 Mises University in Auburn, Alabama. Introduction by Mises Institute founder and chairman, Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr."

Tom Woods explains here his personal journey for truth and intellectual and moral legitimacy. Remembering that much of the information we learn in school and via the MSM is patently false, or incomplete, it is easy to see how an intellectually curious and avid reader like Woods gets to where he is. In this video, Woods talks about his intellectual journey, his father, his college experiences and a host of other topics. I can relate to him because he is my age, and I too have had an awakening of sorts as I read and learn about our country and our world. Unfortunately for me, my 'awakening' occurred in 2007 - 2008, whereas Woods' was in 1993. Imagine you at the stage of 'getting it' right now, as a young person, how far ahead you'd be. Woods and his references can get you there, and your intellectual journey can proceed at warp speed.
