Austrian Views Gaining Ground

Apparently, the Austrian School is gaining traction. Once thought as a philosophical dead end not worth time in argument or hardly even a scant mention, the New York Times went out its way to make an attack piece on the Austrian, Libertarianism, Rand and Ron Paul, the Mises Institute, etc. In fact, no one from the school of thought seemed spared from their attack.

Just look at the articles, found here, opening paragraph.

The libertarian faithful — antitax activists and war protesters, John Birch Society members and a smattering of “truthers” who suspect the government’s hand in the 2001 terrorist attacks — gathered last September, eager to see the rising star of their movement.

With an opening paragraph like that, you know that the New York Times will not paint the Austrian School in a positive light. However, an attack signifies that Austrian philosophical thinking is spreading and that it has someones panties in a bunch.
