Australian libertarian conference


Come and join us at the Sydney City RSL for the 1st Australian Libertarian Conference  on the 6th and 7th of April– listen to some of the best and brightest national and international speakers, meet other libertarians, and enjoy a fun-filled weekend of learning, friendship and the inevitable arguing that comes from putting more than one libertarian in a room at the same time.

Special guest speaker is Dr Tom Palmer from the Atlas Network and Cato Institute in the USA.

Other guest speakers include Cassandra Wilkinson, Prof Sinclair Davidson, Dr Eric Crampton, Adam Creighton, A/Prof Jason Potts, Dr Ben O’Neil, The Hon Dr Peter Phelps MLC, Dr Michael Keane, Bob Day AO, Chris Berg, Tim Wilson, Tim Andrews, Cr Clinton Mead, Jennifer Buckingham, and many more.

The conference is being run by the Australian Libertarian Society (ALS), and is being co-sponsored by the Australian Taxpayers’ Alliance (ATA), the Institute for Public Affairs (IPA) and Mannkal Economic Education Foundation.

  12. well done. Hey George, why do you think Libertarians are right wing. Individual liberty on a social level is sooo Left Wing. Time everyone looked at the Nolan chart and discovered that the left-right dichotomy does not work. Libertarians are UP-Wing, and seldom Up themselves

  13. Just a quick update. The “early-bird” prices are now over and the package deals have increased to $80 for students and $110 for adults. Still great value given the line up of quality speakers… which now also includees James Morrow, Mark Hornshaw, Brad Taylor, and Jeremy Shearmur.

    See you there. 🙂

  14. Heya 🙂

    The page says registration for the package deal is $100, but when I got to register it’s saying $110. What’s the deal? Thanks.

  16. One of the best week-ends I have ever had. Ideas for personal freedom and responsibility in bucket loads. The sweet smell of liberty…….the vision of freedom from the power of a coercive bloated state and its corrupted allies: the colluding corporates, unions, NGO’s, bureaucracy, academics and the group-think dictats of self-appointed “intellectual elites” and “experts”.
    All control (of our own lives, thoughts and speech) to us, the people!

  17. Could not get to the weekend… travel constraints… but did spend time watching “We the Living” on DVD. Banned in Italy in the 1940’s, grainy black and white, with subtitles, but oh so timely
