Video: Sax and Violence : why does tax get a free ride?

aiden-gregg

This is the first Libertarian Home talk that I have felt compelled to prefix with a health warning. The libertarian movement has an unjustified reputation for being a) cold-hearted and uncaring b) predominantly male and occasionally c) juvenile. I recall Jack of Kent for example defining a libertarian as a liberal who has not left…

Video: Steve Davies’ History of Individualism

Stephen Davies speaking

The civil war undermines and blasts apart political and spiritual authority, and a radical movement develops. By 1646 Richard Overton is imprisoned at Newgate from where he fires his Arrow Against All Tyrants, effectively a libertarian pamphlet. Notably it is a property rights respecting right-wing form of individualism.

Video: Hacking at Hierarchy

Adriana Lukas

Adriana’s talk offered less in the way of practical solutions than I might have liked and less perhaps than the write-up promised, but this did not diminish a fascinating talk by someone clearly absorbed in her topic. The following write up is based, in order of importance, on her notes which were quite thorough and…

Video: The life and works of Garet Garrett

MichaelRuddGaretGarrett

Garet Garrett (1878-1954) is a case study in forgotten genius. His work offers a sparkling vision of peace under free markets. Garrett saw peace and freedom as the essential precondition for the real drama of human life that revolves around creation, association, risk, love, courage and the full range of human experiences that transform society…

Video: Dominique Lazanski: Fighting for Digital Freedom

Dominique Lazanski

I asked Dominique to speak on how she is fighting for digital freedom at the detailed end of the Micklethwait scale, what’s involved in doing it, how is it paid for and how can we help? We learned how she got into the business of Westminster, how she manages to get paid for doing good…

Video: Libertarianism is not simple to argue for

brian-micklethwait

After a record short wait, the latest video from the Rose and Crown meetup is online. I would like to claim that my effectiveness at video editing has greatly improved, or that the talk required less encoding time than other talks or less editing, but the real reason was that I did it while off…

Video: Free Will Determinism and Politics

mark-gullick-free-will

Mark Gullick joined us at the Rose and Crown to introduce the audience to the concepts of free will and determinism, to highlight schools of thought in which they have become dominant and implore us to fight for the “standard bearer” of free will: free speech As you will see in the video below, Mark…

Young People’s Party to stand in Corby

220px-Henry_George

There are so many parties at this time of year that one finds it difficult to choose, and I’m not talking about Christmas. There seems to be too many libertarian political parties to even count them properly. John Watson gave it a go recently: Actually here is the full list…. pro liberty (to be registered)…

Video: Why Britain needs the euro

christian-michel

This talk proved to be seriously contoversial online, before a word of it was uttered. Some people chose to stay away, others came but for different reasons, but thankfully most entered into the spirit of the thing. But what was the point of talking about the euro? The intention of choosing this topic was not…
