This year’s Annual Conference, of the Libertarian International and the Libertarian Alliance, promises to be as grand as the last one in 2007. It will be hosted, as is usual, at the National Liberal Club, a stone’s throw from the Houses of Parliament, Whitehall, Trafalgar Square, and many major attractions of Central London.
I have it on good authority that David Friedman, son of the eponymous Milton (“…if we take as a first approximation, the assumption that about 100% of all monies raised by taxation are then wasted…”) will be attending and will speak.
Topics of important seminars will be:-
“The defeat of ageing – our ultimate freedom?” – Dr Aubrey de Gray (Cambridge)
“Future Shock; three perspectives on freedom in the 21st century” – James Panton (Oxford), Dr Sean Gabb (LA) and Martin Summers
“The global rise of private education for the poor” – James Stansfield (Newcastle)
DEBATE:- “Road Pricing; free market incrementalism, or just more state control?”
LA FILM LAUNCH:- “Britain at the Cross-roads; An intro to road pricing and the privatisation of public space”.
Conference Annual Dinner and Awards, including after-dinner speech:- Reasons to be optimistic – why we are winning the battle for lower taxes” – Matthew Elliot (Chief Exec, taxpayers’ Alliance)
“Ban the Ban” – the human cost of prohibitions – Dr John Meadowcroft (King’s, London)
“The idea of a private law Society” – Prof. Hans-Hermann Hoppe (Nevada)
“The modern panopticon state versus freedom: why State ID cards are bad” – Guy Herbert, (gen. sec “No-2-ID-cards”)
“Post-modernity and liberty” – Marc-Henri Glendenning, Dr Sean Gabb
Attendance including the dinner costs a nugatory £85 sterling, or USD$ 170. you can pay by post, via the Libertarian International, or via Paypal on our own website. (All the details are there in full.)
People are well advised to book early, as places are limited ultimately by the “safety-Nazis and fire regulations.” So book now!
