"The History of Individualism" an Evening Lecture with Steve Davies

This inaugural Libertarian Home evening lecture will be addressed by Dr Steve Davies, the historian and Education Director at the Institute of Economic Affairs. Dr Davies will put the present rise of libertarian politics into context and show how the progress of liberty, and the words used to describe it, have changed through the ages.

Most libertarians would agree that to build a free society "we wouldn't start from here", but we are where we are and this talk will tell us how we got there. This explanation will fascinate the curious and intellectual, but also prepare the listener for more effective activism.

This is also an exciting first step towards solving the problem of oversubscribed evenings at the Rose and Crown. It will be a slightly more formal, and a somewhat larger affair than the existing event series.

I have written a long article explaining the reasons for this step.

We will be in The Counting House's "Griffin Room" on the top floor with private bar and cloakroom facilities nearby. The nearest tube is Bank.

Formality begins at 8pm and will be concluded by 9pm. Some food, sponsored by the Pro Liberty Party, will be provided buffet style. The pub closes at 11pm.

 

Note: there will be no change in the monthly meetup at the Rose and Crown.
