2019 Arizona Freedom Summit - February 8th and 9th
The Freedom Summit is an annual seminar dedicated to promoting and advancing human freedom. To that end, the Freedom Summit offers speakers who have demonstrated their effectiveness in presenting the intellectual case for freedom. The next Freedom Summit will be held on February 8th and 9th, 2019 at The ASU Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law in Phoenix, Arizona.
The Freedom Summit offers a highly distinguished assortment of the best, brightest and most entertaining people in the freedom movement today. The Freedom Summit is an annual update on the current status of freedom in our world from several varied perspectives. Rather than seek to present either an optimistic or pessimistic outlook, the Freedom Summit strives to present an honest and straightforward assessment of the current status of our freedom.
Socialism and other coercive centralized planning schemes have failed to improve and indeed worsened, the human condition. As such, the Freedom Summit does not encourage or promote any particular centralized plan to achieve freedom. Rather, the Freedom Summit encourages individuals to promote freedom in non-coercive ways which are best suited to their individual talents.
The Freedom Summit is a forum for the vigorous and peaceful exchange of ideas about how humans ought to interact with each other. People recently introduced to the concepts of freedom as well as lifelong supporters of freedom are encouraged to attend. Additionally, those who support a coercive government are also welcome to attend; and examine their views in light of the ideas and arguments presented.
Past speakers have included: Ron Paul, Lew Rockwell, Jeffrey Tucker, Walter Block, George H. Smith, Louis James, L. Neil Smith, Sharon Harris, Jacob Hornberger, Don Boudreaux, Vin Suprynowicz, and many others. Also, please visit our speaker's page to see a list of this year's speakers.
