To Be Governed Not At All!
I had the pleasure of attending and speaking at the Students for Liberty regional conference in Philadelphia last weekend. It was refreshing to meet so many young, enthusiastic, inquisitive, and friendly libertarians. In 2005 I thought it was great when 5 people came to the Rutgers Libertarians meeting. On Saturday there were nearly 200 students in attendance, and that was just one of 15 SFL regional conferences.
I wanted my talk to give people new to anarchism a decent foundation for understanding the idea, but also to be something original that could hold the attention of the initiated, myself included. I think I succeeded and I could tell that most of the audience was intrigued.
A transcript that approximates my speech (a little of it was improvised) is now online at Center for a Stateless Society: To Be Governed Not At All!
