On Students For Liberty: “I believe Students For Liberty is important for two distinct reasons. The first is practical: the organization trains and empowers students to become leaders in their fields, whether that is law or business or politics or academia. The second is theoretical: SFL fosters an international community of young people from every corner of the earth who are interested in joining the discourse to make the world a better and more peaceful place.”
