    Hans-Hermann Hoppe Bio

    May 2004

    Professor Hoppe was born on September 2, 1949, in Peine, West Germany. He attended the Universität des Saarlandes, Saarbrücken, the Goethe-Universität, Frankfurt/M, and the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, for studies in Philosophy, Sociology, History, and Economics. He earned his Ph.D. (Philosophy, 1974) and his “Habilitation” (Sociology and Economics, 1981), both from the Goethe-Universität, Frankfurt am Main.

    He taught at several German universities as well as at the Johns Hopkins University Bologna Center for Advanced International Studies, Bologna, Italy. In 1986, he moved from Germany to the United States, to study under Murray Rothbard. He remained a close associate of Rothbard until his death in January, 1995.

    An Austrian school economist and libertarian/anarcho-capitalist philosopher, he is currently Professor of Economics at UNLV, Distinguished Fellow with the Ludwig von Mises Institute, and Editor of the Journal of Libertarian Studies.

    In addition to his recent English-language books, Professor Hoppe is the author of Handeln und Erkennen (Bern 1976); Kritik der kausalwissenschaftlichen Sozialforschung (Opladen 1983); Eigentum, Anarchie und Staat (Opladen 1987) and numerous articles on philosophy, economics and the social sciences.

    I love him. If there is one person whose political opinions are identical to mine, that would be him.
    Neither assimilation nor integration will solve the problems. The only thing that would work from my point of view would be separation. And this separation should be done on a global level, not on a communal level. The western countries here, the islamic countries there. And a very tall border between the two worlds please.

    Skadi is a motley crew. But insults are generally not appreciated.

    As indicated there is lots of interesting reading or listening on that website. I actually find the strategy they are using also interesting:
    - Making stuff freely availabe.
    And they are using this as a deliberate strategy. This was said during one of the lectures. This is an excellent strategy as it proved to be helpful to spread the message. Something I think we should consider at skadi as well.

    There is a couple of books downloadable:
    http://www.mises.org/studyguide.aspx...subject&Id=117
    And lectures, speeches, the like is downloadable as well:
    http://www.mises.org/media.aspx/
    Altogether one can get a large amount of free stuff one otherwise would have to pay thousands of dollars for. In my country they won't be available at all.

    Insults?
    I'm quite surprised, this (callling someone "nut" and so on) wouldn't be seen as an insult at the german sites I visit regularly.
    Obscene and violent language, of course, but that?
    Perhaps I should check the rules regarding speech in this forum...

    In my country they won't be available at all.
    Sounds like a good chance to make money.
    Perhaps you should open a bookstore or something like that?

    Hmm. Well, reading the rules never hurts! I had to read them and agree to abide by them in order to join, myself. But better late than never:
    http://forums.skadi.net/showthread.php?t=2729

    I'd say calling people "nuts" for supporting National Socialism is borderline. Here's Rule #6, abridged:
    We allow fair and benevolent criticism of all ideologies, if presented in a civil and non-insulting manner. Your attitude and presentation shall determine whether you will face disciplinary procedures.
    It's understandable that you would find any statist ideology nutty, but I think a more civil criticism of statist ideology could be found than that simple statement. Also, your post tends to group all Skadites under the classification "nuts" and that kind of tends to rub people here the wrong way.

    But I'm glad to see that you're becoming aware of the libertarians here in our community!

    It's also very much in keeping with a lot of more libertarian trends of thought on information. Exclusivity of information rights is a concept that's often not highly regarded among anarchists. I love it that Hoppe's stuff is freely available like this. I've shared it with all my family.

    Perhaps the english word "nuts" has a slightly different meaning than it's german translation "verrückt"?

    In modern day german, at least in everyday live and on the internet, "verrückt" normaly means something like (dt.) "spinnert" (don't know what's that in English).
    Only in special contexts, e.g. when talking about psychology or health or sth. like that it would mean "mentally abnormal" or "insane".

    If in a german forum I would have written about "Nazis und andere etatistische Verrückte", 99 percent (or so) wouldn't feel insulted or attacked by that.

    Hmmm.....

    One of my friends is studying English at the university.
    I'll ask him tommorrow.
    He should know if there are any differences.

    It could well be different. I don't understand German pragmatics well enough to speak about "Verrückt." In English (at least here in America), "nut" is a pretty pejorative term. We talk about mental hospitals as being "nuthouses" for example, and it's not a nice term even then.

    Another problem is the slang term "Nutzis" used derogatorily against certain Neo-Nazis. To call all proponents of National Socialism "nuts" kind of invokes the "Nutzi" script, thus serving to lend the impression that all National Socialists are mindless victims of cheap propaganda, which I think is an unfair generalization. That makes this particular word more shaky in this particular context. Kind of like calling a miserly African "niggardly," I suppose.
