If you are reading this on a phone or computer, you have everything you need to join one of SFL’s virtual reading groups. VRGs grant readers the opportunity to discuss books with liberty minded people all around the world. Under the guidance of an expert, you can read and learn about a variety of different social, political, and economic thoughts and ideologies. It is a great way to discuss ideas, develop essential critical thinking skills, and connect with friends and fellow libertarians. These groups are open to all and a free book is provided on behalf of Students For Liberty. This February, SFL is offering two amazing virtual reading groups:
Co-hosted by the Institute for Humane Studies, Deschooling Society will begin Thursday, February 9th at 6pm EST. Join Dr. Kevin Currie-Knight to discuss the role of the state in public education. Written by Ivan Illich, the book argues that a society must abolish state regulated education to have a complete separation of church and state. The discussion will consider his arguments and question whether higher pay for teachers and higher standards for learning could fix the lingering problems of public education. According to Illich, the state’s involvement in education is a fundamental attack on freedom and liberty.

Also, join CEO of Istanbul Network for Liberty, Ali Salman, to discuss Islamic Foundations of a Free Society. The book dives deeply into the compatibility between Sharia Law and a free society. The group will discuss Muslim thought, societal-based welfare, freedom of choice, economic freedom, and jihad and political change. Join Ali Saturdays at 11am EST, starting February 26th. This is a great group if you are interested in the cultural, social, governmental, and economic repercussions of religion and its role in the state throughout various points in history.
