From the remarkable Robert Higgs: “Tolstoy’s Remarkable Manifesto on Christian Anarchy and Pacifism.”
The piece itself is not that remarkable. It basically just criticizes Tolstoy, but it concludes with this teaser:
I plan to write at greater length about Tolstoy’s fascinating book for a future “Etceteras” feature in The Independent Review. Aside from its interest as a manifesto for Christian pacifism and anarchism, the book contains many anticipations of ideas later developed in economics and public choice, and it deserves much greater attention in these regards than it has previously received.
That, I find interesting enough to merit mentioning.
And interesting enough to prompt me to download the free audio recording of the book, which I have started to listen to.Bookmark it: del.icio.us | Reddit | Slashdot | Digg | Facebook | Technorati | Google | StumbleUpon | Window Live | Tailrank | Furl | Netscape | Yahoo | BlinkList
