The Progress of Freedom: The Future of the Movement

In this forum, three renowned champions of freedom, from different institutions, analyze what the future holds for the cause of liberty and where and under what conditions it is most likely to prosper. In their discussions, the panelists explore human nature and emphasize that optimism, education, individual character and responsibility are critical elements in challenging the threats to liberty. Finally, they discuss the creation of a charter city in the region and the importance of learning from visible examples of freedom and oppression.
