Look out for Ron Kitching’s book on Classical Liberalism

I have done a review of the book for On Line Opinion and I will link to that when it runs. In the meantime, look out for Understanding Personal and Economic Liberty: A Simple Guide, first published in 2005 and available from CopyRight Publishing in Brisbane.

This is a handbook on the way we got to where we are and how we might move forward. Somebody should provide every aspiring politician in the country with a copy, certainly every LNP candidate for the next Federal election.

Ron Kitching (1929-2011) was a Queensland “boy from the bush”. He became a highly successful drilling contractor in the mining industry. Starting with Ayn Rand’s epic novels he became a self-taught polymath in philosophy and political economy and a member of the Mont Pelerin Society.

His own story is an inspiration in itself!

A bit of a showman as well.

The drill exhibition was an outstanding success, the dual-purpose drill concept was up and running, and we now see manufacturers of this style of machine throughout the world.
No one who attended that event will have forgotten the magnificent dinner and cabaret that followed, and again, Ron was at the fore in organising this delightful event. The last
act that evening was put on by some of the delightful young ladies of Mount Morgan who gave an excellent rendition of the can-can. For the finale, they flicked their dresses over their
backs, where a single letter on each rear end spelled out: Warman Drills are Best.

    Someone referred to Clive James as a polymath, to which I replied that he looked more like a rolypolymath.

    Obviously misogynists!
