These are the very rare few books and publications written by Galambos. The content of the Thrust fir Freedom book—which is really a collection of pamphllets—is relatively very succinct and concise. I believe they were actually written by him. As opposed to Sic Itur Ad Astra[ 1 ], which is a transcription of his lectures into print form.
Sic Itra Ad Astra is a bit like his lectures. Filled with "digressions." As he himself admitted. Very much varying in direction. Although not in focus on the principles. And the important thing is the stated, true principles. There is no "varying" or "waffling" in them.
Because of the huge number of fallacies permeating our supposed and false knowledge related to our current societal system it is necessary to "digress" from one fallacy to the other to illustrate the very few and simple principles of a rational and durable society. It is necessary to show how the failure to follow the principles leads to the myriad of problems caused by our current societal system. Such as war, unemployment, terrorism, crime, failed school and health care systems. Inflation, depressions, poverty, famine, hunger, failed pension systems.
This is a trial of the Amazon "Widget" to display music or book publications related to Galambos' courses. You can read my note on a selection by dragging the mouse over the graphic, then over each of the titles.
The following, as indicated, is Borodin’s In the Steppes of Central Asia.
The following is a draft of a Zamaday Card, honoring the life and
achievement of Publius Cornelius Scipio.
Then, the link below is to Respighi’s i pinni della via Appia, The Pines of the via Appia. I have re–named it Scipio’s Triumphal March. I think this is the music that should be played in a film about the life of Scipio, as he leads the victorious 5th and 6th Legions up the via Appia to the Forum to receive his Triumph for defeating Hannibal at Zama. Thus ending the 2nd Punic War, and making Rome the master of the Mediterannean. Ensuring that Europeans—and later Americans—would be Occidental and Christian, as opposed to Oriental and Muslim. As would have happened if Hannibal had won. (The beginning of the music is very muted, slowly increasing in volume as he approaches the Forum. In this sense it is a bit like the Balero of Maurice Ravel…? Inceasing crescendo.) As I listen I can see Scipio sitting easily on his horse, relaxed, yet with a ram-rod straight back, as they wind their way up the via Appia. Crowds cheering the end of increasingly desparate times over the previous 15 years.
The 5th and 6th Legions had been decimated at the Battle of Cannae on August 2nd, 216 bce., and sent as punishment to Sicily. There, about 13 years later, Scipio started training the remnants of the 2 legions for the pending battle against Hannibal in Africa. When the Senate refused to finance his movement to Africa, the man built the necessary ships, with Scipio funding the materials from private sources. He also had to find men to man and command the ships of his fleet.
This is my favorite rendition. It is performed by the Berliner Philharmoniker, under the direction
of Herbert Von Karajan. I knew von Karajan. He one time (the Fall of 1959) drove me from Stuttgard
Zuffenhausen to Innsbruck, Austria in my Porsche. His RSK Spyder being left at Porsche for
some work. He insisted he drive, as the price for the honor of accompanying the Maestro… I
was just picking up my car after having it rebuilt as the result of an accident.

Sic Itur Ad Astra
by Andrew J. Galambos
As Nazi Germany brought horrifying war to Europe, a teenaged Andrew Galambos reacted with singular sensitivity, particularly to the atrocities, murders and other crimes commited against the Jews, some of whom were relatives in his native Hungary. On 1942 December 7, the first anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, he enlisted. There in Europe, he saw the bloody rubble of what was once a great continent. There too, he learned of the deaths of his aunts, uncles and cousins in what would soon be named The Holocaust. There he resolved, "Never again!" As he said, "Either the Hitlers have to go, or civilization will surely go." Returning to New York City, he completed his education in physics and mathematics, and secured positions in academia, teaching those subjects at university level, and in industry, making major contributions to the rocket industry. Frustrated by the incompetence and injustice he saw everywhere he turned, and ever mindful of the conflagration the world had just endured, he began to construct a solution. In 1961, he founded The Free Enterprise Institute, his private, profit-seeking school through which he began to lecture. In over 100 courses, he described and designed a new world, one in which justice, freedom and prosperity will triumph. This book, Sic Itur ad Astra is the introduction to his theories, the blueprint to a stabilized durable civilization. It is the first step.
Thrust for Freedom
by Andrew J. Galambos
In 1963, Andrew Galambos began "Thrust for Freedom," as a series of short articles and definitions pertaining to, and necessary for the attainment of a free capitalist society. The first five were printed in that year. Due to the rapid expansion of his ideas and the growth of his lecture vehicle, The Free Enterprise Institute, he was unable to print the remaining seven topics he had conceived in the series. Suzanne J. Galambos then edited her husband's notes, and published numbers six through twelve in the same format as the first five, via The Liberal Publishing Company in 1991. She recognized at that time that a single pamphlet with all twelve "Thrusts for Freedom" would be desirable, and that too was published in 1991, commemorating the 30th anniversary of the founding of Galambos' private, profit-seeking school, The Free Enterprise Institute.
Now, in 2000, to coincide with the release of Volume One of Galambos' magnum opus, "Sic Itur Ad Astra," TUSPCO publishes an expanded version of Thrust for Freedom. The twelve original "Thrusts for Freedom" remain, of course, but are now accompanied with extensive additional commentary by Galambos, culled from Volume One of "Sic Itur Ad Astra," and from his article, "Conservatism is not Capitalism; Capitalism is not Conservatism," which is reproduced in full.
Other significant expansions are the inclusion of Galambos' postulates for his theory of Volition, and a lexicon of critically important definitions and concepts. With these postulates and definitions, and with Isaac Newton's integration of physics as a model, Galambos is able to bring the rigorous logic of science to the social domain. He lays the foundation of an exciting, challenging and rewarding new science, one which promises a heightening of the human spirit, satisfaction of the quest for justice, and the attainment of a cosmic destiny. There is no better introduction to this, the continuing revolution, than "Thrust for Freedom: An Introduction to Volitional Science."
Borodin: Symphony No.2/In The Steppes Of Central Asia/Prince Igor
Comment by William W Morgan
This beautiful music by Borodin—In the Steppes of Central Asia—was one of the pieces of music Galambos chose to play with "the Physics Course," P–100. It is on Track No. 2 of the CD.
The Steppes of Central Asia is beautifully descriptive music. For me it seems as if the classic view of the Steppes is similar to the vastness of interstellar space. Hauntingly beautiful…
Many people may not know that Borodin was also a chemist. He was a Professor
of Chemistry at the Medico–Surgical Academy of St. Petersburg. Being
also a research chemist. Here are some links that connect to information

Comment by William W Morgan
This beautiful music by Fryderyk Chopin—Piano Conerto No. 2—was one of the pieces of music Galambos chose to play with "the Physics Course," V–201. It is on Disc No. 2 of the set.
