2-CD Set Volume 2: Robert Higgs and Lew Rockwell - Restoring the Republic 2007
Artist/Band: The Future of Freedom Foundation
In June of 2007, the Future of Freedom Foundation held one of the most important conferences in the history of the libertarian movement, "Restoring the Republic: Foreign Policy and Civil Liberties."
For the past several decades, U.S. foreign policy has included support of dictatorial regimes, brutal sanctions and embargoes, invasions and occupations, terrorist "blowback" against the United States, severe assaults on civil liberties and the Bill of Rights, suspension of habeas corpus, torture and "rendition" of detainees, indefinite detentions, and kangaroo military tribunals.
With the ever-growing debacle in Iraq, there was never a better time to come together to share ideas on restoring the limited-government, constitutional republic envisioned by our Founding Fathers. When you review our list of 24 speakers -- libertarians, liberals, and conservatives -- you will see that this one one fantastic intellectual experience that can be now be relived through this 12-volume series of CDs.
