"Based on the overwhelming media response we’re getting – even more so than when we had Ron Paul, Mary Ruwart or John Stossel – it seems like the ideas of liberty are finally catching on." Carla Gericke, FSP President
Nashua, NH (PRWEB) January 09, 2013
Today the Free State Project announced the speakers at its sixth annual Liberty Forum, and the lineup is sure to draw liberty-minded people from all over the world to the Live Free or Die state – even if just for a weekend. Regarded as one of the most prestigious liberty conferences in the world, the 2013 Liberty Forum will be held February 21-24 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Nashua and feature speeches from a variety of leaders in the liberty movement.
“In order to attract as many people as possible, we tried to get speakers across a broad range of subjects,” says Chris Lawless, the event’s organizer. “Looking for tech stuff and intellectual property? We’ve got Cory Doctorow. How about alternate currencies like BitCoin? Come hear Roger Ver and Charlie Shrem speak. We have Jeff Tucker and Tom Woods for economy wonks, Jack Spirko for survivalist types, and Aaron Day of The Atlas Society for those who want to hear more about Objectivism. We also plan to announce more speakers soon.”
In addition to regular speeches and TED-like 30-minute talks, the Liberty Forum also features discussions on everything from art as activism and knowing your rights to austere medicine and where to find jobs in New Hampshire. There are also off-site events organized, such as a tour of the New Hampshire State House. Additionally, after-hours gatherings will showcase the projects of local liberty activists.
“Based on the overwhelming media response we’re getting – even more so than when we had Ron Paul, Mary Ruwart or John Stossel – it seems like the ideas of liberty are finally catching on,” says Carla Gericke, President of the Free State Project.
