Summary

phrase that “America is a republic, not a democracy” and explained the popularity of the word “democracy” by invoking the Communist Internationale. The NEC was the subject of a 1950 Congressional Hearing. We can distinguish between the Volker Fund, which supported the NEC, and the Earhart Foundation, which did not, even though H. B. Earhart provided the NEC with both money and advice. The NEC vice-president LeFevre, opened the “Freedom School” through which the Koch family encountered the libertarian anarchists Rothbard and Childs. Hart’s anti-democratic world view is on full display in Rothbard’s work. Such a worldview is a far cry from the strong supposition of democracy via discussion in the early Virginia School.
