Today is Tom Szasz’s 92 birthday. I hope he’s having a great day with his family. Remarkably, Tom continues to publish a book a year. His awesome work is recommended to anyone who loves liberty. It’s a mistake to think his work is fundamentally about psychiatry. Fundamentally it is about the necessary integration of freedom and self-responsibility — and their enemy the state.
You can find a sample of his writings here. Some things I’ve written about Szasz include:
“Szasz and Rand” (Journal of Ayn Rand Studies, pdf)
