Of course, Mises was correct 87 years ago. And his insights are correct today.

Who's supporting your intellectual battle? Is it the Republicans who simply want a return to their version of socialism? Is it the Obama Democrats who seek to fulfill the dreams of Karl Marx?

Try the Mises Institute,, the Future of Freedom Foundation, or the Foundation for Economic Education. These sites will prepare you so that you can "thrust [yourself] vigorously into the intellectual battle."

From a recent edition of the Email Update from the Future of Freedom Foundation:

Tuesday, June 2, 2009
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.
— Ludwig von Mises, Socialism [1922]
