Libertaria­ns gather in Wilderness


A host of interestin­g speakers are expected at the Libertaria­n Society of SA's annual seminar in Wilderness next weekend, 19 to 21 October. Attendees are invited to actively participat­e and 10 minute speaking slots are still available. Libertaria­ns defend each person's right to life, liberty, and property rights that people possess naturally, before government­s are created. Enjoy interestin­g talks, presentati­ons and lively debate.

The 2018 theme is “Are libertaria­n solutions the answer to SA’s problems?”. According to the society the world is getting freer and more libertaria­n, while the current debates in SA are going the other way.
