Tom Woods, the widely published author, dropped me a note about his new endeavor, Liberty Classroom.
The site's motto is "Knowledge is your best weapon in the struggle for liberty. Arm yourself."
LC offers several courses taught by Tom, Kevin Gutzman, and other intellectual heavyweights. The current courses offered are U.S. History and Western Civilization. A course on free-market economics will be added in the near future.
I asked Tom (pictured, right) how much it costs to join. His response: "It's $99 for everything on the site, which is something like 140 lectures, plus the ability to ask questions of the faculty, participate in the live streaming sessions we'll have once a month, etc. It's a steal compared to any other online learning environment I've seen."
Imagine if government schools incorporated these high-quality lectures in their civic and social studies classes. Wow. Just, wow.
