Liberty and Leviathan
An evening with:
ROBERT HIGGS, Senior Fellow at The Independent Institute, discussing his new book, "Depression, War, and Cold War"
THOMAS S. SZASZ, Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry at SUNY, presenting the Szasz Civil Liberties Awards
You are cordially invited to the presentation of the Thomas S. Szasz Awards for Outstanding Contributions to the Cause of Civil Liberties to Robert Higgs and Robert Spillane, followed by a special forum featuring Dr. Higgs on “Liberty and Leviathan.” How could the U.S. government have grown by more than one-third since 9/11, with Congress having increased the national debt to $8.5 trillion, the feds annually consuming a record $2.5 trillion, and civil liberties increasingly jeopardized? Dr. Higgs predicted this result, and now, as he unravels important questions of 20th century crises, he will provide a powerful, solidly grounded exposé of government power in the U.S. since the early 1930s.
Reception: 6:30 P.M.
Program: 7:00 P.M.
Admission: $35 ($25 for Institute members; $15 for students)
