FRO Free Books to Colorado Teachers Annual Fundraising Dinner
Please join us on Saturday, November 7th for a FRO Free Books to Colorado Teachers Fundraising Dinner:
About Dr. Diana Hsieh's talk, "Luck and Liberty":
Today, we often hear calls for more government regulations and welfare programs to correct the supposed unfairness of people's unequal luck in life. Yet in fact, such statist interventions expose people to the worst forms of luck, not just to the whims of indifferent bureaucrats but also to the brutal severity of nature. Freedom, not statism, is the cure for luck. This talk -- a preview of Dr. Hsieh's upcoming 2010 OCON course, "Luck in the Pursuit of Life" -- offers fresh insight into the crucial importance of freedom to our lives.
About Dr. Benjamin Bayer's talk, "The Transformative Power of The Fountainhead":
Dr. Bayer will tell the story of his first encounter with The Fountainhead, how as a high school student, he was won over by the power of Rand's novel in spite of himself, and how this experience contributed to his complete philosophical about-face. Dr. Bayer will then reflect on this autobiographical material in light of some of the principles discussed in his essay, "The Fountainhead and the Spirit of Youth" (which appeared in Robert Mayhew's 2007 anthology Essays on Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead).
Please join us for an exciting evening of food for both body and mind in support of the FRO Free Books To Colorado Teachers Campaign!
