Panel 1: How to Change Society

Scott Barton from IHS spoke on the Hayekian theory of social change, beginning with ideas, going to the second hand dealers of ideas, and then policy changes. For IHS, we must begin with academia and then we can change society.

Dr. Jo Kwong from Atlas talked about the importance of building an international community that supports liberty.

Scott Bullock from IJ spoke on the importance of using the law and courts to change society. He also gave a very well delivered argument for humanizing the message of liberty. IJ seeks to put a face on human rights violations.

Kurt Weber from SPN talked about the value of working at the local level, and how great it is to see so many young people get involved in the cause of liberty.
