Per Ericson (1965-2007) was a Swedish journalist and author with a background in the Moderate Party. He became well known as an editorial writer at Svenska Dagbladet, where he was a lone voice of the right in criticizing the Economic and Monetary Union of the European Union and the Iraq War.
As a student, Ericson was an active member of Heimdal, then a member organization in the Confederation of Swedish Conservative and Liberal Students, and a member of the student union council representing the student party Fria Studenter. In 1993, Ericson was editor in chief of Confederation of Swedish Conservative and Liberal Students' journal Svensk Linje. In 1998, Ericson partnered with Per Bylund and Thord Swedenhammar to found the anarchist web site Anarchism.net.
Ericson has authored a number of books, among them Living Free and Living Well (Template:Lang-sv) (1999), in which he argued for a value-founded classical liberalism based in neo-Aristotelian philosophy. He has called himself "cave liberal" and "conservative anarchist," and was influenced by anarcho-capitalist writers such as Murray Rothbard as well as Catholicism. He criticized former Archbishop of Sweden K.G. Hammar and the Church of Sweden from a traditional Christian perspective and converted to Catholicism on 5 April 2006.
