Inspire, Educate & Connect Summit Recap

FEBRUARY 10, 2014

Over 150 attendees joined FEE last weekend for its first ever Inspire, Educate & Connect Summit in Naples, FL. The event was a success, with students, alumni, supporters and partner organizations coming together to create an exciting and engaging atmosphere. The day program included talks from FEE president Lawrence W. Reed, Illinois Policy Institute CEO John Tillman, and several other prominent speakers, all stressing the importance of reaching out to newcomers with the ideas of liberty.
 
The day program concluded with the Leonard E. Read Alumni Award dinner, where economist Stephen Moore served as keynote speaker. Following Mr. Moore's speech, Gordon Cruickshank was awarded the first ever Leonard E. Read Distinguished Alumni Award, which recognized his contributions to the liberty movement over the course of the last thirty years. We are looking forward to the continued growth of the event, so be on the look out if you would like to join us next year!

CURRENT ISSUE

April 2014

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.
