Brian Doherty,in Radicals for Capitalism, writes:
Anarcho-left theorist Murray Bookchin became an occasional visitor to the famous Rothbard living room-until Rothbard one day angrily kicked him out of the house. Noam Chomsky was a penpal for a while.
Does anyone have more information on what caused Rothbard to kick out Bookchin? What about his relationship with Chomsky?
I've also heard that while Rothbard disliked contemporary music,he didn't mind a few Beatles songs. Does anyone know what songs those were?
I thought someone said that he left the group because all of his disciples were defecting to Rothbard.
I've heard that too,but Doherty mentions Rothbard kicking Bookchin out,not Bookchin leaving.
There were no footnotes, endnotes, or otherwise citations for this interaction?
I want to read the Chomsky/Rothbard letters (that I will now refer to as "The Mythical Chomsky/Rothbard Personal Correspondance")
The footnote says "Walter Block, interview by author, January 27, 1999."
i haven't been able to find a transcript of the interview.
Here is a Chomsky-Rothbard tissy fight.
You've got to love the tasteful ad hominems that intellectuals throw around in print.
Ha! That was awesome. I like how Rothbard pointed out the uselessness of saying "they've only killed thousands".
On another note,does anyone know Walter Block's email?
