Off to Berlin

The talk in Oxford was fun. Really smart students and a delightful conversation.

Now to something deadly serious:

I hope that people will visit the new Free Kareem website and take note of how urgent the situation is for him. It is painful to think of his suffering for merely writing some blog posts.

This is very important to everyone who values liberty and who thinks about the innocent victims of power.

News about Kareem’s trial todayOctober 20th, 2009

As we reported earlier, the decision of September’s appeal was meant to be announced today. However, it has been postponed until the 22nd of December. In the meantime, Kareem will remain imprisoned despite his innocence.

We are extremely upset by this discouraging news, as his trials are consistently delayed, causing him to remain in prison for much more than he should be, even though he already completed 3/4th of his sentence.

Please tweet this news by using the #FreeKareem tag. Express your outrage at this gross human rights violation. Kareem must be freed!

Sweet, I guess that means I won’t be the only libertarian in town for a while… Does this mean there is some sort of libertarian event going on?

There is a symposium on the 250th anniversary of the publication of The Theory of Moral Sentiments: http://www.council.uni-bayreuth.de/index.pl?lang=de&id=16450
It’s a small academic conference sponsored by the Council on Public Policy. Last night we enjoyed a very interesting lecture by Prof. Deirdre McCloskey on “Bourgeois Freedom and Bourgeois Dignity.” It will only be going on for a few more hours.
