Harry Browne, RIP & New Books Available

This would have been author and freedom fighter Harry Browne’s 76th birthday. Harry (who passed away in 2006) did great work for decades and he helped awake and inspire many people to the value of freedom and the perils of political saviors. His work on surviving economic nosedives is more relevant now than it has been since the 1970s.

Harry’s widow, Pamela Wolfe Browne, created an excellent website tribute to Harry here. She has also made available several new e-books of Harry’s writings, both published and unpublished. They are available at the same web page.

Pamela also has a personal message posted today at DownsizerDC.org here.

The last time I saw Harry was at the LP National Convention in Atlanta in 2004. He came up behind me and put a hand on my bald head. It was a hoot – like getting a priest’s blessings.

I much appreciated Harry’s fighting spirit and his fine sense of humor.

    I first found out about him and libertarian ideas back in 2000, since I really couldn’t stand Bush and Gore. I actually had a chance to meet him in September of 2000 when he stopped at the University of Iowa. Unlike a lot of my friends and relatives, I never regretted my vote in that election. A few years later on his radio show, I was listening when you were on the show. I bought Terrorism and Tyranny that night on Amazon and finished in just a few days. I also loved the fact that I could write emails to him during his radio show and they’d actually be read on the air. He was very cool.

    Jerry – thanks for your comment.

    Harry was a real gentleman – very welcoming to people who wanted to learn more about freedom.
