ANYTHING PEACEFUL

Summer Seminars Kick Off in Prescott, AZ!

JUNE 16, 2013 by RICHARD LORENC

On June 10, nearly 80 high school students began our first high school seminar of the season: "Anything Peaceful" at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott, Arizona. Named after FEE founder Leonard Read's book "Anything That's Peaceful," this seminar will introduce teenagers to the basic ideas of economics, the proper role of government, and the freedom philosophy. Brad Thompson, Paul Cwik, Brian Brenberg, and Diana Thomas led students through provocative discussions and activities designed especially to inspire newcomers to incorporate the ideas of liberty in their lives. 

Immediately following "Anything Peaceful," our first college seminar of the summer begins, also in Prescott. "Who Will Build The Roads? And Other Questions About Free Societies" (June 14–17) will challenge conventional college-aged thinking on ways to solve problems in society. Jeff Proctor, Sandy Ikeda, Paul Cwik, and Ben Powell will lead nearly 80 students to discover the means and institutions through which free people address pressing issues without government force.

FEE's Prescott seminars are the first two of 10 great programs planned for this summer. Check our website regularly for event summaries as the season progresses. And special thanks to all of our supporters, lecturers, and donors who make these events possible.

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.
