Rafe’s Roundup March 22

Gerard Henderson’s Media Watch Dog will be posted this evening. The Libertarian Calendar from Mannkal.

Very good article on the way government mandated energy efficiency policies are oversold to the gullible and badly-informed public.

From Libertyworks, a reminder of Rothbard’s contribution to explain how property rights can be used to address environmental pollution in ways that are cost-effective and do not empower regulators.

In 1982, Murray Rothbard published a lengthy article titled “Law, Property Rights, and Air Pollution” which laid out a free-market, private-property-based approach to environmental issues.

A reminder of the video of Peter Ridd on free speech and climate change.

Look out for the CIS Liberty Conference in May. What is it about libertarian conferences in May?

The Liberty and Society Student Conference is a unique 2-day conference for students interested in exploring important economic, political and philosophical issues of past and present from a classical liberal and libertarian framework. The conference is now in its 23rd year, and has supported over 900 students, over 20 years, including the likes of Josh Frydenberg, Kelly O’Dwyer and Simon Bridges.

And the great Jonathan Haidt is coming to town.

Think Inc. is proud to present, Jonathan Haidt: Moral Psychology in an Age of Outrage coming to Australia & New Zealand in July & August 2019.

If you haven’t heard of Jonathan Haidt yet, you’re about to start seeing his name everywhere. After recently engaging in some enlightening conversations across the podcast circuit with the likes of Sam Harris, Joe Rogan, Ezra Klein and Jordan Peterson, it’s clear Jonathan has perspectives worth hearing. Jonathan thinks that we should be able to disagree in a more constructive way (and if you think he’s wrong then you’re an idiot, you have no idea what you’re talking about, get the **** out of here!!). But seriously, true civil discourse is slowly becoming a thing of the past & at Think Inc., we want that to change.
