So how do we get the audio book form Kenneth?

How about Pando?  There are three links:

  • High Quality = 329.1 MB AAC 128 kbps
  • Medium Quality = 177.9 MB AAC 64 kbps
  • Low Quality = 89.4 MB AAC 32 kbps

They're all up.  BTW, these links will last something like a couple weeks after the last person downloads, so it's a good idea to spread them around publicly to make them more nearly perpetual.








What software do you use to make it into one audiobook file?  I have thought about doing this with some other audiobooks.  Mises.org has many that could be put into one file.  I would maybe do this for them if they would upload the single files I make to their site.

That's because man/men is the gender neutral way to address the human species.

I always prefer writers who use the male pronouns in the gender neutral sense.  This is one of the things I liked about Harry Browne.  He always did this in his writing and speaking.

I don't like 'they' and 'their' as a gender neutral pronouns.  Female pronouns used in a gender neutral way annoy me to no end.  It's like the author / speaker is trying to force some PC garbage on me.

Using the male pronouns as the gender neutral is grammatically correct--I don't care what the PC sissies have to say.

I used to fight with alternating "male" and "female" words (silly terms, really, when it comes to grammar). Sometimes, I still do, but dealing with it is a nightmare. Especially in fiction, the writing comes off as jarring to the reader.

I came across this audiobook long before I knew about Free Talk Live.

I enjoyed the audiobook a great deal and it helped get me over quite a few minarchist hurdles.

Ian, you might want to update the audio file with a "if you enjoyed this audio book" plug for Free Talk Live. I know you would have gained me as a listener much much sooner.

I found this to be quite true, especially in my current class of learning French. For me to read a sentence which makes the noun feminine despite a masculine 'source' (He, Bill, Bob, and etc).

Lets just pick the most efficient way to speak for christ's sake! Fuck PC, fuck tradition for tradition's sake. Right now, we use the male pronoun to refer to the human race in general. Its been that way for a long long ass time. Everyone's been educated at the cost of billions to speak and right in this fashion. In order to change that we'd have to have a pretty fucking good reason, and placating some stupid little whore who can't get over her own inadequecy in the face of overwhelming male superiority is just ... god, its supremely wasteful and counterproductive. You set an ugly precedent for every other busy body who wants to foist their morality of the day on us. Fuck em all, God and Men will stay hes and hims. Women can do the laundry.

Lol, uh, I meant to say "...to speak and WRITE in this fashion..." not "...right in this fashion." Foot in mouth, awesome.

I thought I did that at the end.   :?

I need to redownload this. I'm having a weird ass problem:
About 2 hours in or so, the sound cut out. The time counter kept running, but no sound.

No language uses the feminine pronoun as the default general person.. NOT EVEN IN MATRIARCHAL SOCIETIES.

I find when authors use the female as the the default distracting.. it's a modern feminist change that makes no sense to me nor does it promote "gender equality" or anything like that.

It's better to focus on the CONTENT of the book, not some arbitrary use of pronouns.

Listened to it months ago, thanks to a FSP mover who I met during the RP campaign.

Great e-book!

I wonder whatever happened to Linda and Morris Tannehill. They wrote this book in the 80s and nobody heard from them again. If I were a conspiracy theorist I could only begin to speculate.
