The FORCES International Honour Committee
Rockwell is the founder and President of the Ludwig von Mises Institute in Auburn, Alabama, Vice President of the Center for Libertarian Studies in Burlingame, California, and publisher of the political weblog LewRockwell.com. Rockwell was closely associated with his teacher and colleague Murray Rothbard until Rothbard's death in 1995, and Rockwell's political ideology, like that of Rothbard in his later years, combines an anarcho-capitalist form of paleolibertarianism with cultural conservatism and the Austrian School of economics. Rockwell also espouses the political concepts of federalism, secession, and political decentralization. Rockwell is a Roman Catholic. He served as Ron Paul's congressional chief of staff between 1978 and 1982.
He is the author of Speaking of Liberty, an anthology of his editorials (originally published on his web site) and transcripts from some of his speaking engagements. Rockwell is also publisher, along with the Mises Institute, of the Journal of Libertarian Studies.
