The Auburn University YAL chapter is once again pleased to report another wildly successful event. Our recent Volunteerism Potluck generated an outstanding turnout and far exceeded our expectations in terms of the amount of delicious food supplied.
The purpose of this event was to emphasize the importance of cooperation and voluntary exchange between people to the message of liberty. Attendees were encouraged – NOT required – to contribute some type of dish to the meeting to share with everyone in attendance. The optional nature of these contributions was heavily emphasized; in spite of this, the meeting featured an almost overwhelming plethora of different foods, illustrating what we at the Auburn YAL chapter believe to be a very important aspect of Libertarianism: the idea that, when given the option, the vast majority of people will choose to voluntarily contribute to the common good without the need for intervention by any government or ruling body.
As it turns out, the liberty-minded people of Auburn have exquisite culinary talents! Our potluck features such tasty fare as homemade cornbread, hand-spun chicken wings, a whole slew of delightful sauces and dips, as well as countless mouthwatering cakes, pies, puddings, and crumbles.
The ensuing feast and subsequent discussions were better than we could have imagined. Thank you to everyone who contributed to making this event such an extraordinary success.Published in
