If you haven’t yet made an end-of-year (tax-deductible) donation to The Future of Freedom Foundation, you still have today to drop a check in the mail, call us, or use our online donation form. Another great way to support our work is to purchase a subscription to our monthly journal of ideas on liberty, Future of Freedom, and also to give gift subscriptions to your friends.
Why has FFF continued to maintain an uncompromising approach to freedom during our 25 years of existence?
Because we believe that it’s the best way — if not the only way — to achieve the genuinely free society.
Debates over proposals that call for reform of the welfare-warfare state inevitably revolve around the legitimacy of the reform. While reforms might improve life under the welfare-warfare state, they are not the genuinely free society for which all of us libertarians are striving.
By making the principled case for individual liberty and free markets, The Future of Freedom Foundation causes people to question the legitimacy of the welfare-warfare state apparatus itself. When a critical mass of people conclude that the welfare-warfare state way of life is contrary to the principles of a free society and decide they want a genuinely free society, that’s when a monumental shift will take place in America that brings us liberty, peace, prosperity, and harmony.
That’s the way it has always been in history. The great movements for liberty have always been led by an infinitesimally small minority of people — those who adhere strictly to principle and, in the process, attract a growing number of people who believe the same way. Freedom of religion, for example, wasn’t achieved by people calling for reform of state churches but rather by people calling for a total separation of church and state.
How close are we to that critical mass of people in America? That’s impossible to say but it just might be a lot closer than anyone thinks. What ultimately matters, however, is that we continue standing for what’s right. As George Washington put it in addressing the delegates at the Constitutional Convention, “Let us raise a standard to which the wise and honest can repair; the event is in the hands of God.”
