From war across the globe to regulating speech to printing trillions of dollars, the American regime accepts no limits on its power. As Ludwig von Mises understood, the state will take as much power as the people will let it, and in recent years the American regime has clearly concluded it can get away with unilaterally adopting vast new powers.
Join the Mises Institute in Nashville for an event inspired by this siege of power and one of Ron Paul’s favorite lines: truth is treason in the empire of lies.
We will be joined by a group of brave speakers who have dedicated their careers to rejecting the regime’s propaganda at personal cost: Ted Galen Carpenter, Michael Rectenwald, Karen Kwiatkowski, and Jonathan Newman. Carpenter will cover the national security state’s global growth and the drive for a new, endless cold war. Rectenwald will examine how the regime seeks to control our schools, our families, and even our speech by denouncing everything it dislikes as “hate.” Kwiatkowski will discuss corrupt political influence on military intelligence. Newman will explore how the Federal Reserve has taken on vast new powers to manipulate markets, prop up government spending, and enrich favored elites.
The media, which enthusiastically supports the regime in its pursuit of power, blindly refuses to acknowledge that these new powers go far beyond what the taxpayers and voters imagined to be possible. In other words, you won’t hear about any of this on cable TV or in the Washington Post. Our speakers won’t hold anything back, however. This event is not for those content with the comfortable narrative peddled by the corporate press but for those interested in understanding the true face of the American regime.
The event will take place at the Grand Hyatt in Nashville, Tennessee. Registration is $95 for Mises Members and $125 for nonmembers, and includes a catered lunch. There will be a social hour after the event with our speakers and an open bar. Tickets are $50. The event will begin at 11:00 a.m. and conclude at 3:00 p.m.
