The Legitimate Role of Government in a Free Society

What is fairness and justice? What is the legitimate role of government in a free society? In this Capitol Hill Lecture, the late Walter Williams answers these questions, which are fundamental to the foundation of our country. Williams dedicated his life to defending this country and the values of a free and open society it was founded on. 

What is Democratic Socialism?

You wouldn’t think that Americans need to be told about the reality of socialism just 30 years after the collapse of the Soviet Empire—but to be frank, we have failed to pass these lessons on to rising generations. That’s why we need to teach as many people as possible about the reality of socialism. In this webinar, Dr. Bradley discusses the lies of “democratic socialism,” and what must be done to prevent America’s young people from being seduced by this lie. She explains why she believes we need to do more to educate younger Americans and shares how TFAS is fighting back against the radical ideologies taking root around the country.

Venezuela: My Story, Your Future

Venezuela has in recent years been the poster child for the failures of socialism. But it wasn’t always this way. Just a few short decades ago, Venezuela was once the most prosperous nation in South America. How could this have possibly happened? One word: Socialism. In this webinar, you’ll hear from Jorge Galicia, a young Venezuelan freedom fighter who was forced to flee the country to avoid the persecution of the Maduro regime. Jorge shares his personal story, a riveting insider’s look into the economic and political collapse of Venezuela from someone who experienced it firsthand. Jorge will delve into his experience as well as identify key factors that lead to the rise of socialism in Venezuela.

The Religion of Identity Politics: How we arrived and where we go from here

Dr. Joshua Mitchell is a longtime TFAS professor in political philosophy and has also been a favorite speaker among donors who have attended our annual conferences. Thoughtful and insightful, he discusses the issue of identity politics, delving into its origins and explaining how we have arrived at the position we are in today. He’ll also help us to understand how we should react to our current era and what can be done to shift the arc of history we are in today.

Marx and the Communist Promise of Liberation

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Elizabeth Warren, and even Joe Biden have brainwashed millions of people in our country—especially young people—into believing that socialism is the best future for America. Even though they try to wrap their policies in different names (like “democratic socialism”) — it’s ultimately just socialism. Dr. David Azerrad—the renowned professor of political philosophy for The Fund for American Studies, and research fellow at Hillsdale College’s Kirby Center in Washington, D.C.— helps us understand the false communist promise made by Marx himself.

Disorder in the Court: The Battle over Judicial Nominations and the Politicization of the Supreme Court

Join us for an exclusive opportunity to hear from Ilya Shapiro, director of the Robert A. Levy Center for Constitutional Studies at the Cato Institute, for a discussion on the politicization of the Supreme Court and the battles over nominations and confirmations to the court.

Covid-19: Response and Recovery

The COVID 19 crisis has shaped our world like no other event since World War II. Governments have expanded authority over every aspect of our lives and now that the crisis is subsiding we are left to wonder if they will give back those powers or exercise them with more frequency. Compounding our problems is the global shutdown that has killed countless jobs and businesses causing more people than ever to look to those same governments for solutions to the problems these shutdowns have caused.
