Speech Before the Penn Libertarians:

Readers in the Philadelphia area may be interested to know that I will be giving a speech tomorrow for the University of Pennsylvania Libertarians at 8:30 PM in Houston Hall, Rm. 314, at the University of Pennsylvania, 3417 Spruce Street. I will be speaking on the topic of "Political Strategy for Libertarians," discussing ways that we can work to promote libertarian ideas and limit the power of government in the current difficult political environment. I intend to focus on both the political process and nonelectoral strategies (e.g. - public interest litigation). I will also reiterate the reasons why I think that the Libertarian Party is a poor vehicle for promoting libertarianism.

This will be my first-ever speech to a predominantly undergraduate audience. It should be an interesting event.

Do you happen to know if there will be a "web cast" of the event? I understand that, most likely, those logistics are not your concern. Even so, I ask because I am interested in the topic. If you do happen to know the, I appreciate it very much.

Thank you.

I doubt there will be. But if there is, I will post a link to it on the VC.

Are we no longer counting APDA? Wish I could make it over, but night-time events are hard with two under five at home.

I realize you'll be talking about political strategy, but are you, by chance, going to look at the intersection of libertarianism and Friends philosophy?

Not likely, since I don't know what "Friends philosophy" is.

I assume he means the Quakers - they like to have two names. (quickly found link) Some parallels to libertarianism.

I hope somebody shot this for YouTube.

I have to confess, I thought Penn Jillette fans when I read the title. FreeFM had all the proletariat libertarians calling in.
