On Students For Liberty: “I am delighted that Students For Liberty has provided me with the opportunity to work with active-minded students who are passionate about ideas. It is a pleasure to introduce the future leaders of liberty to the philosophy of Objectivism and to help them understand and make the philosophical and moral case for capitalism.”
