Mises and Birth Control

Postby ProstheticConscience » Mon Mar 05, 2012 10:30 am

Love for sale: birth control from Marx to Mises discusses Mises' opposition to female sexual autonomy. Relevant to US current events.

It appears that Mises is actually all over the place in that sub-chapter. It may be that he is fleshing out different arguments, idk.

Here is a quote that goes against that article, again from "Socialism":

(Also note that Mises never appears to talk about contraception)

After he appears to discuss the "evils" of socialist free love he says this, which appears consistent with an Austrian economist viewpoint:

He discusses the point that woman developing her personality so that she is her own person is central to the question of feminism. He points out that in the Orient, where the woman has failed to rise above her sex, she has sealed her fate to be of a lower class.
