This Saturday, February 27, Yaron Brook is joined by Tara Smith, professor of philosophy and BB&T Chair for the Study of Objectivism at the University of Texas at Austin, and together they will talk about the rule of law, Justice Scalia’s death and Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign.
In his latest op-ed, published on Breitbart.com, ARI’s director of legal studies Steve Simpson argues that campaign finance laws threaten the individual’s right to free speech, because they rest on a severely mistaken view of the meaning of free speech.
