Restoring the Republic 2008 - DVD Volume 9: David R. Henderson and Laurence M. Vance
For the second year in a row, the Future of Freedom Foundation hosted "Restoring the Republic: Foreign Policy and Civil Liberties." These talks from June of 2008 showcase leaders from the libertarian, conservative, and liberal movements concerning civil liberties and foreign policy.
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 21 speakers -- libertarians, liberals, and conservatives -- you will see that this one one fantastic intellectual experience that can be now be relived through this 11-volume series of DVDs.
