The potential of humanity through economic freedom and technology is limitless. That is the message CFACT brought to LibertyCon in Washington, D.C., one of the nation’s largest gatherings of liberty loving young people, run by Students For Liberty.
Through an impactful presentation from CFACT president Craig Rucker, eye-catching activism, and meaningful one-on-one conversations, CFACT’s leaders helped drive home the point that humanity and the planet are better off with more liberty, not less.
“The ultimate resource is human ingenuity,” said Rucker to the 30 attendees of CFACT’s breakout session. “While some would have you believe there is a finite pie of resources and we need to limit humanity to correctly divide it, we believe there is more than enough to go around, and we have only begun to tap the potential of how big we can make that pie for all of Earth’s inhabitants.”
The talk, titled “Wild Liberty,” detailed the history of both environmental issues as well as CFACT’s unique approach to speaking truth to power. Topics such as citizen journalism, doing events that grab attention on campus, and writing letters to the editor were all points made throughout the speech and were well received by the audience.
