Ron Paul: Liberty Defined
Thursday, April 10, 2014 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
Ron Paul, Former U.S. Congressman; Twitter @RonPaul
In conversation with Josh Richman, Political Reporter, Bay Area News Group
The term “liberty" is so commonly used in our country that you might say it has become a mere cliché. But do we know what it means? What it promises? How it factors into our daily lives? And most important, can we recognize tyranny when it is sold to us disguised as a form of liberty? Paul posits that to believe in liberty is not to believe in any particular social and economic outcome. It is to trust in the spontaneous order that emerges when the state does not intervene in human volition and human cooperation. It permits people to work out their problems for themselves, build lives for themselves, take risks and accept responsibility for the results, and make their own decisions. In fact, Paul calls liberty the seed of America.
