Events

The Libertarian movement is a community of think-tanks, parties, academics, activists and campaign groups. Organised events offer a great opportunity meet like mind people and delve into the philosophical, strategic and legislative issues of the day.

Thursday Speaker: Allum Bokhari

allum-b

Allum Bokhari is a proudly-professed and – in senior circles – a “well regarded” libertarian. He writes regularly on for Breitbart that cluster of issues labelled often “the culture wars” – everything from Reddit moderation, campus “safe spaces”, online subcultures, overflowing identity politics, the Sad Puppies and #GamerGate. Before Breitbart he has contributed to Spiked…

Thursday Speaker: Dominic Frisby

Dominic-Frisby-image3

This Thursday we are joined at Libertarian Home by the multi-talented Dominic Frisby. An actor, a writer, a comedian, a financial commentator and investor. It’s quite possible that Dominic is the most talented speaker we’ve ever had at Libertarian Home… In fact he’s so talented someone at the BBC, it doesn’t matter who, described his…

Thursday Speaker: Syed Kamall

syed-kamall-eu-parl

There is a hymn that talks about the torture and death of an historical figure on a hill “without a city wall” which I was made to sing when I was about seven. I can still remember Mr Woodnut explaining the unusual use of “without”. Hills, while not commonly known for having walls around them are nevertheless quite…

Election Night Special

I’m pleased to be able to tell you that, thanks to a secret army of minions, Libertarian Home on May 7th will come from the venue of an all night gathering in West Brompton. This is a third party commercial event, of which we will be a substantial part. If you want the usual Libertarian…

Audio: Making Change Within Your Lifetime

simon-at-making-change

This rather noisy recording is from the Fine Line – the dinner and drinks venue for the Liberty League Freedom Forum 2015. Brian Micklethwait, Charlotte Bowyer and Guy Herbert joined myself for a wide ranging chat about how they have do and have done libertarian activism. http://bb8df32ebb1b60e7a7f6-dd84e330d6bc6c322cf4b9415c94c358.r24.cf2.rackcdn.com/making-change.mp3 I think all the participants looked at their…

Thursday Speaker: David Atherton

david-atherton

David is chairman of Freedom 2 Choose a “lifestyle freedom association” who campaigns for less government interference in our lives. He is known to some as “the smoking bloke” although Tobacco Tactics – a website that describes the hideous machinations of Big Tobacco – has almost nothing substantive, and nothing at all negative – to say…

Brian Micklethwait on Childrens’ Rights

happy-brian-on-childrens-rights_000090

I found (unearthed?) this video while searching for images of Thursday’s speaker, Brian Micklethwait. What do you think? A bit more on Brian. Brian is insanely well-known around Libertarian circles. Everyone knows he was involved in the Libertarian Alliance during it’s hey day and is responsible for all those LA leaflets and tactical notes that…

Video: Travelling on Russian Borders

michael-jennings-featured-image

When Michael Jennings as born the world was neatly divided into US led and NATO allied West and a Russian dominated East, behind the Iron Curtain. The separation was obvious and physical – barbed wire was involved – and had consequences – acts as simple as fetching groceries worked very differently on either side. Now,…

Full Video: The Causes of the Cost of Living Crisis

P1000386-2x1_2

The cause of the cost of living crisis in Britain is Government. That is the overwhelming message of our October 23rd panel event. The panel discussed the origins of the meme, the origins of the crisis. We agreed that a decent standard of living is to be earned, not taken from others. On food pricing,…
