Your humble Devil is... ah... humbled to have been asked to speak at the Adam Smith Institute's Next Generation event on Tuesday 3rd November.
I have been given a free rein, pretty much, as to the topic although they did express the wish that it involved "something libertarian" and, possibly, an introduction to the UK Libertarian Party.
Having just done such a presentation at the Libertarian Alliance Conference—which was, by the way, immensely good fun—I do rather fancy doing something a little different.
I have been developing some ideas about how a Libertarian government might both encourage charitable giving, enable people to make provision for misfortune, reduce welfare fraud and stimulate voluntary collectivism and community cohesion.
As such, I have been looking into a number of options and, most particularly, examining whether Friendly Societies (or variants thereof) might hold the answer.
So I am, at present, tempted to present a quick examination of whether these might work, and talk about a few ideas that I have had for stimulating such entities.
Alternatively, I might just have a bit of a rant. Who knows, or dares to dream?
Anyway, I look forward to seeing some of you there...
