What exactly does “liberty” mean? It’s a question Students For Liberty gets asked a lot from curious onlookers at our outreach efforts. After all, “liberty” is a word used and abused by politicians that it can seem like a hallow concept.
To libertarians, on the other hand, liberty is more than a buzzword. It is a necessary condition for human flourishing.
That’s why SFL teamed up with Learn Liberty to produce Liberty 101 — an online course aimed at explaining key concepts of libertarianism to beginners. Users will explore the 10 fundamental principles of a free and prosperous society as they relate to philosophy, economics, and law. Each section is narrated by one of Learn Liberty’s knowledgable expert and includes a engaging quiz question and supplementary materials.
Liberty 101 is broken up into the following three sections:
- Philosophy & Liberty – Prof. Peter Jaworski from Georgetown University covers the concept of liberty, individualism, toleration, and peace.
- Economics & Liberty – Prof. Diana Thomas from Creighton University covers the market process, skepticism of power, and civil society.
- Law & Liberty – Prof. Christopher Koopman from George Mason University covers spontaneous order, rule of law, and limited government.
Best of all, Liberty 101 is completely free and open to everyone! Check out the tailer below and navigate to our landing page to begin the course.
