Walter Block on Hillsdale College

The following email exchange took place with Dr. Walter Block:

Dear Walter

A friend must have read one of my retorts, asking if I was interested in taking a free online course about the Constitution. The school was Hillsdale College.  I was curious about Hillsdale and saw that it had a Libertarian streak in its persona (if an institution can have a persona).  It certainly looks like a place where your ideas would be welcome. It would not surprise me to know that you are already familiar with it/them.


Dear  xxxx:

Hillsdale used to be libertarian. They still are, but only on economics. When it comes to foreign policy and social policy, they are now conservatives, as bitter an intellectual enemy of libertarians as are liberals.

Best regards,


Walter E. Block, Ph.D.
Harold E. Wirth Eminent Scholar Endowed Chair and Professor of Economics
