Without philosophical or intellectual leaders, we are void of ideas.
Two prominent intellectual figures in the liberty movement will be speaking at the Republican Liberty Caucus National Convention on February 12, 2011 in Arlington Virginia — David Boaz and Dr. Randy Barnett.
David Boaz is best known as the author of Libertarianism: A Primer, published in 1997 and described by The Los Angeles Times as “a well-researched manifesto of libertarian ideas.” He has been involved in the libertarian movement for nearly 40 years. He frequently addresses topics such as education choice, the growth of government, the War on Drugs, and the libertarian movement. He is a frequent guest on national television and radio shows.
Randy E. Barnett is an attorney and a law professor at Georgetown University Law Center, where he teaches constitutional law and contracts. He writes and speaks about the libertarian theory of law and contract theory, constitutional law, and jurisprudence. He is a Senior Fellow of the Cato Institute and the Goldwater Institute. Professor Barnett’s book The Structure of Liberty won the Ralph Gregory Elliot Book Award in 1998. In 2009, he drafted the Bill of Federalism, 10 proposed amendments to the US Constitution designed to limit federal power and strengthen individual rights. Barnett’s arguments on libertarian theories within jurisprudence and contract theory have been criticized by other libertarian academics ranging from Richard Epstein and David Mayer to N. Stephen Kinsella and Walter Block.
