EAI Presents “Triumph of Liberty” to Green Mountain Patriots

Essex, VT — The Green Mountain Patriots hosted a presentation of the Ethan Allen Institute’s “Triumph of Liberty: The moral and practical superiority of free market capitalism,” at the Grange Hall in Essex on Saturday morning.

“Triumph of Liberty”  looks at the history of free market capitalism, focusing on the fact that it is the only economic system to lift a society, en mass, out of poverty and into a tremendous bounty of prosperity. Upholding the principles and providing a framework for free market capitalism – a society in which people are free to interact and make voluntary contracts with one another free from force or fraud – is the only legitimate moral foundation for government.

A version of Triumph of Liberty can be seen HERE.

If you are interested in bringing EAI’s Triumph of Liberty to a venue in your town, please contact Rob Roper at rob@ethanallen.org.
