Liberty in the Age of Trump: A Symposium, with Jim Turney
LIBERTY IN THE AGE OF TRUMP, WITH JIM TURNEY
(4PM-6PM) 18TH FEBRUARY 2017
Less than a month after the inauguration of Donald Trump as President of the United States, it is still unclear to many what exactly his presidency will mean for civil liberties, immigration, free markets, international trade, and war and peace. To discuss the Trump presidency and the US and European libertarian movements’ continued relevance, all are welcome to Mises UK’s intimate symposium in South Kensington featuring Jim Turney, former US Libertarian Party Chair. Free admission (donations welcome).
JIM TURNEY, part of the US liberty movement since early adolescence. He is a Director at LibertyTapes.org initiative, a Liberty International organisation Fellow and former US Libertarian Party Chair. He was one of the people behind the Ron Paul presidential campaigns that made libertarianism mainstream in USA. Mr. Turney has taken part in many Libertarian Party campaigns and is currently working to preserve his audio and video archives, many of which are already accessible through Libertarianism.org.
PROFESSOR JOHN KERSEY is Chairman of Mises UK and a Vice-President of the Traditional Britain Group. Director of Cultural Affairs for the Libertarian Alliance, Professor Kersey is an interdisciplinary historian whose work spans the three principal areas of music, education and traditionalist Catholicism, in particular those movements that developed as a result of the First Vatican Council of 1870. The author of several books, he has also recorded over 100 CDs as a concert pianist, including the first recordings of several unfinished works by Beethoven. He is currently Chancellor of Western Orthodox University.
