George Reisman in Swedish

Per Olof Samuelsson the translator of Ayn Rand's Anthem and Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal into Swedish has started an impressive new blog dedicated to publishing his translations of my articles and essays. The first essay to appear is "The Toxicity of Environmentalism." More are scheduled to appear soon.

The world should know that Per-Olof has also translated both Ayn Rand's The Virtue of Selfishness and The New Left: The Anti-Industrial Revolution, but has been prohibited, under threat of legal action, from publishing them or even showing them to anyone else by Leonard Peikoff, who controls her estate and who apparently places the value of communicating Ayn Rand's ideas in an intellectually important country such as Sweden below considerations of personal pique.

I thank Per-Olof and applaud him for his persistence in the face of needless, absurd obstacles created by those who are supposed to be his intellectual allies.
