The Christians for Liberty Conference 2014

My friend Norman Horn, from is putting on the first Libertarian Christian conference!

I met Norman in 2008 at a Mises Institute conference. He is extremely well read, a Ph.D. chemist, a preacher of the Gospel, and a great defender of liberty.

I’m going to do everything I can to attend this.

    Was Clark a Libertarian?

      Yes and no. He did not affiliate ever with the Libertarian Party. But his views on what the government should be involved in would place him in a pretty extreme group of libertarians. However, he certainly wasn’t anarchistic. I have no record of him knowing about Anarcho-Capitalism. His writing does argue against anarchism, but it seems to be more the leftist variety. Like most Christians he saw the Government as ordained by God for the punishment of evil-doers. Mostly though politics was not Clark’s major interest. He was an epistemologist first and foremost, and it was epistemology that he saw as the most important question to answer first.
