The movie has won many awards as it powerfully documents the recent militarization of the nation’s local police forces. This film highlights the disturbing trend that has started after 9/11. Many local police …

  • Atlas Shrugged Marathon

    Here at Harding University we wanted to do a fun event to start off the year right. So we decided to do an Atlas Shrugged Movie Marathon on September 2nd (Atlas Shrugged Day).

  • The Dark Knight: Pro-Liberty Vigilante?

    The Dark Knight became one of the highest grossing films in history after it hit theatres.  Well, it was deservedly so.  Heath Ledger’s performance as the Joker will assuredly be considered one of the top of this time and maybe ever.  Something that often times is not acknowledged about The Dark Knight, probably due to the …

  • How to Advance Liberty

    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 …
