The Future of Liberty: Debate

The Fund for American Studies, which sponsors Pileus, is hosting a debate tonight on Georgetown University’s campus. The topic of the debate is “The Future of Liberty in America.” The debaters are Nadine Strossen, professor of law at New York Law School and former president of the American Civil Liberties Union, and Roger Pilon, B. Kenneth Simon Chair and Director of Consititutional Studies at the Cato Institute.

I will be moderating the debate. If you’re in town, it takes place in the auditorium of the Intercultural Center, beginning at 7:30pm. If you’re not in town, you can watch the live stream, available here.

Among the questions I will ask them to address:

1. What do you believe are the greatest threats to American liberty over the next ten years?

2. What do people not understand about American liberty that they should?

  1. You should have offered an incentive to comment on the issue by telling readers you’d ask the best question posted!

  2. Good timing, Jim. This will give me an excuse not to listen to the President. Best. Bill Dennis

  3. 3. Will the grit, IQ and physicality of Boston overcome the talent of the Lakers and super-stardom of Kobe Bryant?
