Hey liberty folks!
This is the first blog post I have submitted since I have picked up the chapter here at Utah State University; the time has come. We at USU have been meeting weekly, tabling twice monthly, and we’re about to host our second guest speaker (UT GOP Chair Thomas Wright).
We participated in Free Markets 101, and overall I must say that I am pleased with those who have turned out in support. I must say that I am extremely grateful for this opportunity of life and liberty, and that the cause of liberty fulfills my life with a purpose beyond contingent ends.
In the time to come, I intend to illustrate the philosophy of freedom and establish a strong defense of natural and constitutional rights. It is my hope that by means of education and activism, the public will become inspired and convinced of the necessity of fundamental rights and self-governance. By this I posit that when actions are free, the truly moral and beneficial actions are only capable of being accomplished by means of an autonomous will and that this autonomous will is a necessary factor if we are to hold that the will, in itself, is capable to produce actions of moral value.
P.S. Immanuel Kant is an extremely influential philosopher in the Age of Enlightenment. I do believe that understanding of his works can be an instrumental for our cause of freedom. I suggest What is Enlightenment? and Groundwork of the Metaphysic of Morals.Published in
