Evening at FEE: Ayn Rand's Moral Defense of Capitalism

Start Saturday, November 05, 2011 6:15 PM

End Saturday, November 05, 2011 9:30 PM

We invite you to join us on Saturday, November 5 for an Evening at FEE. Our guest will be Yaron Brook, President and Executive Director of The Ayn Rand Institute.

Rejecting previous attempts to defend the self-interested nature of markets–including Adam Smith’s famous “invisible hand” theory–Ayn Rand defined a whole new way of thinking about self-interest, and in doing so, provided an indispensable moral foundation for free markets.

The Evening at FEE event will begin with a small reception at 6:15 p.m., the lecture will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Due to the enormous interest this event is now SOLD OUT. FEE has reached its seating capacity. If you have RSVP’d and cannot come to the event, please contact Katie O’Connell.

Around the world, people are struggling to throw off authoritarianism, with deeply mixed results. From Egypt to Venezuela, determined people build networks to overthrow their regimes, but as yet we have not learned to live without Leviathan. In this issue, Michael Malice and Gary Dudney discuss their glimpses inside totalitarian regimes, while Sarah Skwire and Michael Nolan look at how totalitarian regimes grind down the individual--and how individuals fight back. Plus, Jeffrey Tucker identifies a strain in libertarianism that, left unchecked, could reduce even our vibrant movement to something that is analogous to the grim aesthetic of architectural brutalism. The struggle for our lives and freedom is a struggle for beauty; it begins inside each of us.
