Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Erik Maria Ritter von Kuehnelt-Leddihn (July 31, 1909, Tobelbad (now Haselsdorf-Tobelbad) - May 26, 1999, Lans) was an Austrian Catholic nobleman and socio-political theorist. Describing himself as an "extreme conservative arch-liberal" or "liberal of the extreme right," Kuehnelt-Leddihn often argued that majority rule in democracies is a threat to individual liberties, and declared himself a monarchist and an enemy of all forms of totalitarianism. Described as "A Walking Book of Knowledge," Kuehnelt-Leddihn had an encyclopedic knowledge of the humanities and was a polyglot, able to speak eight languages and read seventeen others. His early books The Menace of the Herd and Liberty or Equality were influential within the American conservative movement. His best-known writings appeared in National Review, where he was a columnist for 35 years.show more
