Ludwig Von Mises Institute is internationally recognized center of research and popularization of the Austrian school of economics. It is the world depositary of great works of the leading economists. Great resource for academics and student providing student fellowship and research grants: support of students, faculty & post-doctoral fellows in economics.
14+ years of government schooling (K - University) completely pale in comparison to a few months of absorbing the mountains of educational material on the Mises.org website. Free audio books, lectures, videos, pdfs and even live streaming of their events and conferences. Catch up on the history, law, economics, philosophy and wisdom they never taught you in your neighborhood State indoctrination center.
In opposition to Centinel's tripe and statist cant [I won't go ahead and say that's its just smalltime outrageous smearing of no objective value whatsoever], nothing expresses the ideas propagated by the LvMI better than the words of Lew Rockwell, founder and chairman of the Mises Institute, himself:

Review from CharityNavigator
Beware: The Institute is a hotbed of anarchist dogma. Specifically, the majority of the faculty and administrators are anarchists whose 'end game' is the destruction and dismantling of American civil and political society. Moreover, they have demonstrated intellectual dishonesty by not openly declaring their rejection of our Constitutional Federal Republic, preferring instead to undermine American institutions and traditions in a nuanced and indirect manner. For example, some anarchists at Mises.org paradoxically and disengeniously act as advocates for the Constitution when in fact they reject all government as coercive and dangerous. All patriotic and loyal Americans who believe in the vision offered by our founding fathers (all who categorically rejected anarchism) should not support this organization under its present leadership.
