A Tribute to Great Minds – Walter Block, Ph.D.

by | Oct 12, 2021

The egalitarian revolt against biological reality, as significant as it is, is only a subset of a deeper revolt: against the ontological structure of reality itself, against the “very organization of nature”; against the universe as such. At the heart of the egalitarian left is the pathological belief that there is no structure of reality; that all the world is a tabula rasa that can be changed at any moment in any desired direction by the mere exercise of human will — in short, that reality can be instantly transformed by the mere wish or whim of human beings.

Walter Block, Ph.D., is an Austrian school economist and anarcho-libertarian philosopher, the Harold E. Wirth Eminent Scholar Chair in Economics and Professor of Economics at Loyola University New Orleans, and a Senior Fellow with the Ludwig von Mises Institute.
