The Twelfth Conference of the Property and Freedom Society (2017), by Sean Gabb

Bodrum 2017:
The Twelfth Conference of the Property and Freedom Society
Sean Gabb
22nd September 2017

The twelfth conference of the Property and Freedom Society took place last weekend, in the usual place and with the usual enjoyments. The Hotel Karia Princess was about the same as ever, and I believe I was put up in the same room as last year. Bodrum itself was somewhat busier than last year, which must have been a mercy for its tradesmen and hoteliers – though it remains but a shadow of what it was when I first knew it. This year has seen two earthquakes, at least one terrorist attack, a fallen pound and a bitter argument between Berlin and Ankara – none of which was helpful to the tourist trade. This being said, it all made a peaceful stay for those possessed of a steady nerve.

Since I have written at length about the Hotel and the company I find there, I will focus this short record on what was new or otherwise different. My speech, on The Value of the Greek and Roman Classics, I have already published in both video and text versions, so will not summarise here. But it was the first speech of the conference, and was received very kindly. [click to continue…]

Hans-Hermann Hoppe
The Ethics of Argumentation

[Originally published at The Libertarian Alliance Blog, 9 Oct. 2016. Version below edited to include links and notes.]1

I

At repeated requests from many sides – and given my already advanced stage in life – I have deemed it appropriate to take this opportunity to speak a bit about myself. Not about my private life, of course, but about my work. And not about all subjects—and there are several to which I have made some, however little contribution in the course of the years—but one subject only. The one subject, where I consider my contribution the most important: the apriori of argumentation as the ultimate foundation of law. [click to continue…]
