Rothbard’s Tribute to Frank Chodorov

March 6, 2007 by

Murray Rothbard’s tribute:

In a crowd of time-servers, Frank Chodorov stood out like a blaze of radiant light. He stood out at that cocktail party, too, the only person alive and ablaze amidst the whole gaggle of one-dimensional and identical men around him. There he stood, his tie askew, his balding head disheveled, the ashes from his beloved pipe flying all around, his intelligent and merry eyes twinkling as he scored some outrageous, logical, and beautifully penetrating point to some clod who couldn’t tell the difference between the host of cardboard “individualists” and this one genuine article. … Writing to protest the designation of himself as a “conservative” in the pages of National Review, Frank retorted: “anyone who calls me a conservative gets a punch in the nose.”
