Louis Proyect:
I was a member of the Young Americans for Freedom in the late 1950's and
subscribed to National Review, the conservative magazine founded by
William F. Buckley who also founded the YAF. Many of the magazine's
writers were fervent supporters of Von Hayek and proselytized on his
behalf in every issue. I didn't become a Marxist until much much later,
but early on I had the perception that the Austrians were simply
providing an ideological fig-leaf to all the rich bastards who were
ruining the world.
