Lawrence W. Reed to keynote 2012 SFL Austin Regional Conference

Start Saturday, November 17, 2012 9:00 AM

End Saturday, November 17, 2012 8:00 PM

In partnership with the Students for Liberty, FEE president Lawrence W. Reed will be the evening keynote speaker at the 2012 SFL Austin Regional Conference. His talk “The Difference One Can Make—Unsung Heroes of History” will introduce the audience to the stories of incredibly inspiring but lesser known individuals whose courage and character teach volumes to people of all ages.

Organized by students and for students, this conference is an incredibly valuable way for young people to further connect with the rapidly growing liberty movement, and to connect with the Foundation for Economic Education in particular. This regional conference is a one-day event held on November 17, Saturday, at the University of Texas in Austin. The event is hosted by the University of Texas Libertarian Longhorns.

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.
