On Students For Liberty: “The ability of Students For Liberty to bring the student movement for liberty together on an international scale is unprecedented in the history of the movement. It’s phenomenal growth, its unwavering dedication to the ideas of liberty, and its wild success lead me to believe that we will see some great things coming from SFL in the very near future.”
