Craig Biddle of The Objective Standard will speak in Denver on February 2nd about “The Trinity of Liberty: Individualism, Individual Rights, and Independent Thinking.” This will be a great talk, so I hope that local folks will join us! You must register and pay by January 30th.

About the Talk

What are the essential principles that give rise to and support a free society? This is the most pressing question mankind faces today, and its answer is the least understood. In this lecture, Craig Biddle will argue that a free society depends on the recognition and acceptance of three key principles (along with their corollaries): individualism, individual rights, and independent thinking. Mr. Biddle will examine each of these elements, identify their interrelationships, and elucidate their importance in the establishment and maintenance of freedom.

About the Speaker

Craig Biddle is the editor of The Objective Standard, a quarterly journal on culture and politics. and the author of Loving Life: The Morality of Self-Interest and the Facts that Support It, a highly concretized, systematic introduction to Ayn Rand’s ethics. He is currently writing a book, tentatively titled Thinking in Principles: The Science of Selfishness, about how to use one’s mind in the service of one’s life, liberty, and happiness. In addition to writing, he lectures and teaches seminars on ethical and epistemological issues from an Objectivist perspective. Mr. Biddle has lectured and taught seminars at universities across the country, including Stanford, Duke, Tufts, UCLA, and NYU.

    Never been a fan of biddle. Something of a warmonger. Did take a stand against the tin horn dictator peikoff though.
