Children in a Free Society

From outspoken right-to-sell-tobacco advocate Charlie Smith ’15:

Children are a thorny issue for any political philosophy. Do children have agency and are they truly rational actors? If not what status should they have? Are they the property of their parents, dependents of the state, or something in between?

This then leads to a host of questions regarding the values taught in publicly funded schools and the extent to which parents have discretion in disciplining their children.

Come join Wesleyan Students for a Free Society tomorrow night to discuss these questions and many more.

Date: Tomorrow, March 5
Time: 8:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Place: 41 Wyllys Room 111
Cost: Free

Wes Students for a Free Society Meeting on Alternative Legal Systems

Charlie Smith ’15 wants you to feel free to look at this message when you have free time:

The government builds roads, runs schools, and enforces the law right?

According to legal scholar David Friedman, this does not have to be the case. This week Wes Students for a Free Society will be having a discussion on alternative legal systems in which laws are established and enforced privately.

We invite you to come out for what should be an interesting discussion.

Date: Tuesday, October 23 (Today)
Time: 8 pm
Place: 41 Wyllys Room 110
Cost: Free (Okay I’ll stop now…)
