Students for Freedom Conference

I am going to be a speaker at the Midwest Students For Freedom Conference at the University of Michigan, on November 8th.

My topic will be how to market and communicate the ideals of liberty.

And the conference will feature lots of other interesting topics and speakers, including Larry Reed, president of the Foundation for Economic Education.

Should be a fun event.

... One thought.
... In such discussions, one must assume that liberty is man's natural state. The onus is on those who would deny this natural state to prove their case.
... So often, we find ourselves almost begging for our liberty, when the explanation should be from the other side.

... Another thought.
... Always link every policy to the principle of economic collectivism, so our efforts don't end up being divided in a thousand separate battles.
... The error is the collectivist assumption that everyone's income is to be considered common property (to any degree).
... And the most important point... read "Atlas Shrugged"- without which, I would be merely another red-faced table-pounding socialist.

D'uh? I've never read "Atlas Shrugged".

Which doesn't mean I'm "merely another red-faced table-pounding socialist".

Admittedly, I've never made it through the Book of Mormon, either.

Which doesn't mean I'm an aetheist.

There were advocates of liberty that pre-dated both Ayn Rand and Objectivism. There still is and always will be.
