Korczak Ziolkowski and Crazy Horse
The John Birch Society's Sam Antonio on the "great believer in private enterprise and individual initiative" behind what "will be the largest mountain carving in the world" — Crazy Horse Memorial: A Tale of Two Stories Told in Stone. An excerpt:
- Korczak’s vision was to have Crazy Horse built by the interested public and not the taxpayer. He so strongly believed in the free-market system that he twice turned down $10 million of federal funding. He knew that federal funds would mean federal control over the project. He felt the government would not complete the carving and not carry out its humanitarian goals.
