Day In The Life

Day in the Life: South Asia Local Coordinator Akash Kumar

By

“As Robin Williams told his student in the Dead Poets Society, ‘No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.’ Students For Liberty has given me a family: individuals who are as crazy as I am, individuals who believe that together our ideas can change the world and make it a better and freer place to live in.”

  1. What made you decide to join Students For Liberty?

I came across Students For Liberty while searching for libertarian groups. The international network of like-minded people and its presence in South Asia was enough for me to get involved.

  1. What was your biggest accomplishment as a student leader?

I consider establishing a Students For Liberty club on my campus and getting more and more people familiar with the ideas of liberty to be my biggest success as an SFL leader to date.

  1. What would you tell someone who is considering getting involved with Students For Liberty?

Jump on the wagon, buddy. It’s gonna be a fun ride. Let’s go change the world, one step at a time.

  1. What does liberty mean to you?

Liberty means freedom of thought and action without impinging on those of others. My belief in classical liberalism is firmly rooted in natural rights and Indic multiculturalism; although I consider myself to be a consequentialist libertarian in the mold of Milton Friedman. 

I find my views close to that of the Bleeding Heart Libertarians, also known as Arizona School Liberals (coincidentally the state where I spent a year of high school and got my first lessons in the liberty movement).
