A future with Corona

Freedom can only be preserved if it is defended not merely for reasons of recognisable usefulness but as a fundamental principle. (Friedrich A. von Hayek)

Statement from Students For Liberty CEO Dr. Wolf von Laer on Covid-19

Crises are times in which the voice of liberty, our voice, is tested. Right now, we have to curtail some of our freedoms in order to avoid spreading a virus that moves as quickly as we are. We cannot forget that liberty has to come with responsibility if we want to make it viable and attractive. 

Therefore, I am proud to see that our community and the liberty movement, in general, has stepped up and taken steps to start working remotely, to limit their interactions with people, and to implement best practices during these trying times.
