Almost Nobody Knows the History of Conservatism and Libertarianism, But You Will

Latest posts by Tom Woods (see all)

People argue incessantly over who’s a “real conservative” or a “real libertarian.” That’s partly because they know so little about the true history and content of these ideas.

We’re trying to fix that!

We have a dozen other courses as compelling as this one, and you get them all when you join us.

Wouldn’t it be great to have a command of the history, economics, and philosophy that liberty’s best debaters seem to know like the back of their hand?

But you have no time, you think, and wouldn’t know where to start.

Liberty Classroom is the answer.

You want a command of history, economics, and related fields. You want to be able to reply to common objections. You want to spread the message of liberty to family, friends, and beyond. And you want to do it without cutting into what little free time you have.

With Liberty Classroom you can learn on the go, with the liberty movement’s top experts.

Want to learn real U.S. history? We have four courses on that. Austrian (free-market) economics? We’ve got that, too — plus, a chapter-by-chapter Austrian critique of the most popular economics textbook on the market.

Every month, too, you can join us live to ask your questions. When we’re not live, ask our faculty whatever you like in our discussion forums. And if you want to know what to read about some topic, we’ve taken the guesswork out of figuring out which sources are reliable. We provide reading suggestions for everything we cover.

If you believe in liberty, you owe it to yourself to be as knowledgeable as you can. And since you also have a life, you should learn this stuff with the least possible exertion.

Plus, to celebrate the release of our new course, get a FREE signed, personalized book by me, Tom Woods, when you join in June 2015! Choose from The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History, Nullification, Rollback, 33 Questions About American History You’re Not Supposed to Ask, or my latest, Real Dissent. Join us, and then visit our Contact page to let us know which book you’d like, and to send along your mailing address. (Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.)
