We are undertaking a special outreach project at The Future of Freedom Foundation to enable us to advance libertarian principles more effectively. I am writing to ask you to help us find more people who share our vision for achieving a free society.
We recently contacted a marketing firm that helped us many years ago with a successful talk-radio campaign that enabled us to spread libertarian principles across the country. The firm did an analysis of our current situation at FFF and concluded that we need three things: (1) a major upgrade of our website to make it mobile-friendly and consistent with current standards and trends; (2) a short video explaining FFF’s methodology for advancing liberty; and (3) an aggressive outreach campaign on social media to raise FFF’s profile in that arena.
Ever since our inception in 1989, FFF has presented an uncompromising case for the free society. Why do we adhere to principle? We believe that that is the best way to shift our nation in the direction of freedom. Throughout history, it has been adherence to principle that has brought such glorious achievements as freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, economic liberty, privacy, the right to keep and bear arms, due process of law, habeas corpus, and trial by jury.
My favorite period in U.S. history is the latter part of the 1800s. It wasn’t a pure, 100-percent libertarian society by any means, but it is the closest that mankind has ever come. Imagine: No income tax, IRS, drug laws, DEA, Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid; no farm subsidies, licensure, welfare, public schooling, gun control, immigration controls, Federal Reserve, paper money, minimum wage, or price controls; no military-industrial complex, CIA, NSA, TSA, FBI, Homeland
Security, foreign aid, foreign wars, or foreign interventions. That was the most dynamic, exciting, invention-filled, prosperous, charitable, and free society ever.
Americans proved that it can be done. That is our baseline here at FFF. We want to restore those principles and build on them. We want America to lead the world to even greater heights of freedom and prosperity.
To do that, we need a critical mass of people who want to experience a genuinely free society. To find more people who are attracted to the principled case for liberty, it is important that we employ every technological tool at our disposal.
This special project — updating our website and making it mobile friendly, creating an introductory video, and pursuing a marketing plan for social media — will enable us to do that. By spreading the principles of liberty, we can achieve a free, peaceful, prosperous, and harmonious society.
