Students for Liberty Northeast Regional Conference
TPUSASAS

Saturday, February 1st 

The Atlas Society Senior Scholar Stephen Hicks, Ph.D will explore the question “Which socialism matters most?” during his breakout session at the Students for Liberty (SFL) Northeast Regional Conference February 1, 2020 at Wagner College in Staten Island, NY. How many socialisms are out there, and which one(s) are most younger socialists attracted to? To find out, Dr. Hicks will address these questions: Does equality –– or providing for the poor –– or saving the environment –– or hating or envying billionaires –– or something else –– most animate this generation's socialists? For our liberty activism to be successful, we need targeted understanding of our adversaries. Three hundred members of SFL and Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) are expected to attend this all-day event. Be sure to stop by The Atlas Society table to meet Senior Editor and Director of Student Programs Marilyn Moore Ph.D and Student Programs Manager Ana Kugler. Ask about joining the Atlas Advocates or the Atlas Intellectuals. Check out our popular literature and pocket guides, including The Pocket Guide to Objectivism, The Pocket Guide to Atlas Shrugged,  and our latest booklet The 7 Habits of Highly Objective People. Snap up TAS laptop stickers, t-shirts, caps, and other must-have swag. All attendees will receive a copy of ANTHEM: The Graphic Novel!

 

 

Jennifer Grossman at Claremont McKenna CollegeClaremont McKenna College

Thursday, February 6th

Jennifer Grossman presents “The Limits of Lessons” at Claremont McKenna College’s prestigious Anthenaeum speaker series in Claremont, California on Thursday, February 6, 2020 at 5:30 PM. Beginning with the question ––How many times does socialism have to fail?–– Grossman will argue that the fight against the "social justice" version of fairness requires a moral case for fairness that is premised upon the inviolability of individual rights, the virtues of independence, reason, and achievement, and the ethics of benevolent self-interest. A liberal arts college with particular strength and focus in government, economics, international relations, philosophy, and public policy, Claremont McKenna College (CMC) is located about 35 miles from downtown Los Angeles and is a member of the Claremont Consortium.

The Libertarian Party of California Convention LibertarianConvention2020

February 14th-17th

Jennifer Grossman takes the mainstage at the Libertarian Party of California Convention at the DoubleTree Hilton Hotel Los Angeles in Culver City, California February 16, 2020.  The four-day event from February 14 - 17 is a runup to the 2020 National Convention in Austin, Texas. Her topic: “Make America Grateful Again: An Antidote to Envy & Entitlement.”  She’ll be screening our latest Draw My Life, “My Name is Gratitude,” and discussing how the fight against socialism will never be won without making the moral case against envy –– and advancing values to neutralize it: individualism, benevolent self-interest and yes, gratitude.  “Of course, no one can make America, or any individual for that matter, grateful,” acknowledges Grossman, “But in an age where victimhood is upheld as a virtue, a push-back on the endless self-pity and resentment is in order.” Click here for more details and to register.
