Leonard Read lectured far and wide on behalf of FEE (Foundation for Economic Education). One of his favorite talks was on “How to Advance Liberty.” The task, he said, was a learning — not a selling — process. Freedom would be won only as individuals, one by one, did their homework, acquired enough understanding first to reject socialist teachings, and then to climb the ladder step by step until in time they, themselves, could become spokesmen for the freedom philosophy. This has been FEE’s educational approach throughout the years.
This video was recorded circa 1978.
Leonard is also the author of “I, Pencil.”
