Blinking Lights and the Western Conservative Summit

JUNE 07, 2013 by CARL OBERG

Our friends at Colorado Christian University have invited FEE to the Western Conservative Summit, July 26–28, 2013, to showcase FEE's unique focus on liberty, free-market economics, and the importance of character in creating and sustaining a free society. We are doing this through our new Blinking Lights Project. At the Blinking Lights webpage, you can explore that relationship; watch videos by FEE's president, Lawrence Reed, on the subject; and sign up to receive a free copy of the movie Amazing Grace, which explores how a small group of people, determined and driven by what is right, can make a massive difference in society.

FEE's launch of our Blinking Lights Project is a great opportunity for FEE to showcase that vital link between liberty and character. I hope to see you at the Western Conservative Summit or at any of our other summer events so we can discuss these issues and start making a difference. See you there.



Carl Oberg is the Executive Director of the Foundation for Economic Education.

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.
