Express Yourself or Suppress Yourself?
George Washington University
6 pm

*** Please RSVP at this link if you are attending: tinyurl.com/GW-RSVP ***

The college campus used to be the place for discourse about opposing beliefs and ideas, an intellectual forum grounded in the inviolate principle that, right or wrong, each of us has a right to our own opinion and should speak our mind. That time, it seems, has come and gone.

Instead of “express yourself,” today’s campuses are a hotbed for an entirely different attitude toward those with views outside the mainstream: “Suppress yourself—or I’ll do it for you.”

In place of dialog and debate, students are shutting out and shutting down opposing views. They demand “trigger warnings” and “safe spaces” and cry “microaggression” at anything they feel is a slight—while they themselves commit real aggressions against speakers like Milo Yiannopoulos and Charles Murray.

Why did students stop believing in free speech?

On Tuesday, March 28, join the Ayn Rand Institute, the George Washington University Young Americans for Liberty and our distinguished panelists for a special discussion focused on this question.

The event is free and includes a catered reception, and the first 50 students to arrive will receive a free book. Please RSVP by March 27.

PANELISTS:

Dave Rubin (moderator) — Creator and host of "The Rubin Report"

Steve Simpson — Editor of "Defending Free Speech" and director of Legal Studies at the Ayn Rand Institute

Christina Hoff Sommers — Author of “Freedom Feminism” and resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute

LOCATION: Room 309 at the George Washington University Marvin Center; 800 21st St NW, Washington, DC 20052

TIME: The event will begin with a reception at 6 pm followed by the panel at 7 pm.

From AFF, see below. Show up and ask some Libertarian-esque quesitons, if you like, and talk to people about the Dallas LP! :)

"Join AFF-Dallas and the Intercollegiate Studies Institute for an evening with Dr. David Corey of Baylor University! He is the author of two books - The Just War Tradition (2012) and The Sophists in Plato’s Dialogues (2015) - and more than a dozen articles. His current project, Political Philosophy Against Ideology, is a study of the loss of healthy political association in the United States due to the rise of ideology.

As usual, we will have ample appetizers and an open bar. Mixing and mingling will begin at 6, with Dr. Corey's talk starting at 6:30. After his remarks, we will have plenty of time for further socializing, and more informal conversations with Dr. Corey. We look forward to seeing you there!

Oh, and Social House offers free parking in a covered lot behind the venue. Now you really have no excuse to skip this."

Hayek Speaker Series: Immigration & Freedom



The Hayek Speaker Series promotes Nobel laureate F. A. Hayek’s intellectual legacy by inviting prominent scholars to discuss Hayek’s ideas in light of the pressing matters of our time.

4:00pm – 5:30pm
Center for the Arts, Grand Tier III George Mason University, Fairfax Campus 4373 Mason Pond Dr Fairfax, VA 22030

Event Speakers 



Chandran Kukathas 

Chair in Political Theory and Head of Department, the London School of Economics and Political Science
State control over immigration is often taken for granted in today’s policy discussions. Many see the value in welcoming highly skilled and wealthy immigrants but want to restrict the migration of others. Yet who is really affected by immigration laws aimed at keeping out unwanted migrants? Can a free society really limit the movement and activities of foreigners within its borders without impacting the freedoms of its own citizens?
Please join the F. A. Hayek Program for Advanced Study in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University for a keynote lecture with Professor Chandran Kukathas on the impact that immigration law has on citizens. Kukathas’ work examines the burden and limitations that strict immigration laws place on citizens.
For questions, please contact Jennings Kuzmier at jkuzmier@mercatus.gmu.edu.
About Chandran Kukathas
Chandran Kukathas completed his BA in History and Political Science at the Australian National University and his MA in Politics at the University of New South Wales before going on to a DPhil in Politics at Oxford University. He has taught at the Royal Military College, Canberra; Oxford; the Australian National University; the University of New South Wales at the Australian Defence Force Academy; and the University of Utah, where he held the Neal Maxwell Chair in Political Theory in the Department of Political Science.

Rand Paul on Obamacare 2.0

RANDPAC
Reinventing A New Direction
 DONATE
Dear Patriot, for weeks I’ve been warning that the House leadership could be selling out the people that put them in office.  
That happened yesterday when they finally released the text of their “Obamacare Lite” plan.
You may recall, I spent a few days trying to get them to release their then-secret plan, that they were keeping under lock and key.
I liked it better when I couldn’t find it.
I won’t hold back – as is, this plan is a disaster filled with more taxes, more mandates, and more subsidies.  It will not lower costs. It will not fix our broken healthcare system.
I will fight them.  I hope you will too.
We are hitting a very crucial point in this battle, and I need you by my side.
Will you help me show my colleagues that Americans are ready to stand with them if they do the right thing?  Add your name to the Real Repeal and Replace Coalition today.
Add Your Name
I can’t stress enough – our time is short and the pressure is on.
But there is hope.  
Today I held a press conference with some of my colleagues from the House and Senate who believe, like you and I do, that we must not have Obamacare Lite.
And as it stands right now, we may well have the votes to stop the House Leadership’s disastrous plan – but only if we keep everyone standing firm.
That’s where you come in. 
Add Your Name
The special interests and the DC establishment will be putting heavy pressure on everyone at that press conference.
They’ll want us to give in, to let them say they repealed Obamacare, even though they left in place 
  • Mandates on what plans must cover
  • The so-called “Cadillac Tax” that taxes the best insurance 
  • Massive Subsidies renames as “refundable tax credits”
  • A $100 billion dollar insurance company bailout
This plan is so bad they even left in the one thing that every Republican is supposed to be against.  The thing that we went to the Supreme Court to try to stop – they left in a massive penalty if you don’t buy insurance.
You and I cannot let it stand.  I’m leading the fight, and your support for RANDPAC helps us reach hundreds of thousands of more Americans to make sure their voice is heard.
The House Republicans want this bill to pass quietly. They don’t want a spotlight on it.
That’s why I’m counting on your to make sure they don’t win.
Let’s fight.  Let’s stand up and say REAL REPEAL ONLY.  
 


In Liberty, 
Rand Paul
