Independent Political Report’s writer Starchild will speak at Libertopia 2013, which is scheduled in San Diego, CA, for August 31 to Sept. 2 (Labor Day weekend). The festival is an event to bring together those in the voluntaryist, libertarian, and even anarchist communities to “spread the principles of free-market economics and voluntarism”, as it’s explained on their website. This year, the format will be more like a workshop than a lecture, and the leaders will be called “facilitators”. Starchild’s session is scheduled for Monday morning, and is called “How Do We Handle Power? Radical Libertarian Organizing in an Authoritarian World.” Starchild currently serves as an At-Large Representative for the Libertarian National Committee. Another Libertarian activist, writer Lawrence Samuels, is scheduled for Saturday morning. His topic will be “Why Chaology is Important to Libertarians”.
The four-day event features Jeffrey Tucker as the Master of Ceremonies. Other people who might be known to IPR readers would be Angela Keaton of Antiwar.com, Gary Chartier, author of “Conscience of an Anarchist”, David Friedman, Butler Shaffer, John Bush, Stefan Molyneux, and J. Neil Schulman. In fact, Mr. Schulman’s new movie, Alongside Night, will be screened Saturday evening. A short biography of each facilitator is listed on the Libertopia website.
This writer is lucky enough to be attending this year’s event. I’ll check into IPR from time to time to let you all know how things are going.
