The logo of the Mises Institute Sweden features depictions of Mises and Professor Hoppe.

As a Christian, I am surprised that M. Rothbard arrived at an essentially correct, i.e., one logically consistent with liberty, system for man living among men for the period until the return of Jesus Christ, given that he seemed to mostly pick ideas from many philosophers like Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas, the Jesuits, Locke, Hume, empiricists all, as opposed to from the ones who had a much more solid epistemology than the epmiricists, like e.g., Augustine. He also seemed to have been overly taken in by Ayn Rand’s fiction and flawed ideas. Also, his affinity for and willingness to team up with lefties, commies, etc, and his apparent loathing of the so much more decent and moral Christian-conservative side. All which seems to indicate to me either moral confusion or ignorance on his part, which makes it all the more surprising that he could have arrived at a system that is so logically consistent with freedom and one that is most moral and decent for man in these last days.
Not to be too critical here, but I think you made a mistake on your logo by placing Hoppe below Mises since Hoppe surpassed Mises by having the good fortune and wisdom of being able to stand on his (and Rothbard’s too) shoulders in advancing the cause of freedom beyond that of his predecessors.
I do commend you though for placing Hoppe in your logo at all and recognizing his contributions.
