Harry Browne, A Great Man

On March 1st, 2006 the great libertarian activist and prolific writer, Harry Browne died at the age of 72 from ALS. To me, Harry Browne was a colossus of liberty. Browne was a man of great intellect, soft spoken, kind and generous. He was always calm, cool and collected when debating any opponent, even such vile fascists as Sean Hannity. I can honestly say that Harry Browne was the one man who caused me to open my mind to new, and more increasingly radical ideas. His books like " How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World", "Why Government Doesn't Work" and "The Great Libertarian Offer" hold a special place in my book collection. Browne worked steadfastly for freedom, and in my humble opinion was one of it's most articulate and ardent proponents. To his wife Pamela and daughter Summer, I must say that I grieve with you. Your loss has touched my heart. I hope that Harry is spreading his message of liberty on the "other side".

Harry, you will be missed.

Actually, his daughter is Autumn.

Close, though.
