The National Review CIA Connection

Was National Review founded by the CIA?  Who exactly are the neoconservatives?

These questions and more are going to be answered by David Gordon in a new Mises Academy course.

The course,  The Betrayal of the American Right and the Rise of the Neoconservatives,  is based on the work of Murray Rothbard, especially Rothbard's book by the same name.

This is the most important Mises Academy course to review the intellectual history of the latter half of the 20th century and the rise of the neoconservatives.

If you want to learn how post-war conservatism abandoned laissez-faire and a foreign policy of peace in favor of an interventionist State, sign up for this course, here.

  1. Of course _National Review_ "founder" William F. Buckley Jr. was supposedly an "ex"-CIA employee and, while an undergraduate at Yale, a Skull-and-Bonesman.

    Just coincidentally, the strangely well-funded _National Review_ sought to convert opponents of U.S. foreign interventionism into rabid interventionists against Communism and leftism generally.

    The same Communists and leftists which the controllers of the CIA and Skull-and-Bones -- the central bankers -- had craftily put into power in Russia, China, and the European ex-colonies the first place.

    In other words, it was all part of a scheme to create a long-term policy of vast U.S./NATO interventionism, spectacularly profiting the central bankers while fulfilling the power-lust endemic among politicians.
