Dear Friends,

Popular culture today routinely depicts corporations and businessmen as evil, and profit as greed.  America’s formerly robust free market economy is under constant assault by thinkers, the media and prominent politicians.  All aspects of the economy are now heavily controlled by laws and regulations.

Is “social justice” the path we should be following, and is redistribution of wealth the fair and compassionate thing to do?  Most of America’s colleges and universities, as well as the public schools, are teaching our children that it is.“Free-market evangelist” Aaron Ensley studied Austrian economics at Von Mises University, where he received a solid foundation in the importance of free enterprise, limited government, and entrepreneurship.  He is a teacher at Brookfield Academy, where he inculcates his students with an appreciation for “what freedom really means as it pertains to our standard of living and overall well-being.”

Please join us. We meet at noon, order lunch, start at 12:05 p.m., and end at 1:05 p.m. Admission is free. Meal purchases and donations are encouraged.

"It is vain to fight totalitarianism by adopting totalitarian methods. Freedom can only be won by men unconditionally committed to the principles of freedom. The first requisite for a better social order is the return to unrestricted freedom of thought and speech."
-- Ludwig von Mises, Omnipotent Government
