    Default Introduction

    Grace and Peace,

    My name is Gabriel and I'm new to this blog. I found www.holyculture.net while searching for a HHH radio station and decided to breeze through the website.

    As a little about myself, I'm 24 years old and currently live in Colorado as a graduate student in atmospheric science. I became primarily interested in HHH while I was involved in campus ministry as an undergraduate and a video named "The Truth About Hip Hop" by G. Craig Lewis was circulated around campus. After investigating the claims in the documentary and seeing that many of them were inaccurate, I learned much more about HHH and begin to absorb a lot of the music. I became a big fan of some of the more bigger names, such as Da' T.R.U.T.H., and also some less known groups, such as Deepspace5. I've been interested in finding likeminded believers that I can fellowship with and this forum seemed like a good place to reach out.

    As for my hobbies, outside of atmospheric science, I'm more of a nerd so I enjoy studying and reading astrophysics and applied mathematics. Outside of the natural sciences, I enjoy reading about Austrian economics and political theory. I've also been playing the saxophone for about 11 years now and I enjoy playing jazz in my free time. Well, that's it for me. Take care and God bless.

    You sir are a gentleman and a scholar. Any fan of Ludwig Von Mises deserves a warm welcome.

    Thanks! I'm always pleasantly surprised when I hear Christians who actually know who Mises and Hayek. Typically, my discussions about Mises and Hayek are around unbelievers. What works of Mises and Hayek have you studied?

    I confess that I have not read anything directly from either, only those who have followed their line of thinking. They are popular within the Christian Reconstruction, or Theonomist, crowd. Gary North, the late David Chilton, R.J. Rushdoony and Gary DeMar. Also, I'm a big fan of Thomas Sowell.

    What works would you suggest? I've been to the institute site.

    Good stuff. All of Gary North's readings are pretty good introductions to the subject and Thomas Sowell is just a fabulous economist. With Hayek, I would say that Road to Serfdom is worth reading and it's a pretty short text. All of Mises's work are pretty long and involved so instead I would say you may want to read Murray Rothbard's Man, Economy, and the State if you want to know the vast majority of Mises's ideas from one of his best students. Also, Economic Calculation in the Socialist Commonwealth is a 20th century classic, which you can find here: http://mises.org/pdf/econcalc.pdf

    JARZJR,

    It's great to meet another person from the Atlanta area. What part of Atlanta are you from? I was raised in Lithonia and did my undergraduate at Morehouse.
