OCON Boston Now FREE For Students
Submitted by Ayn Rand Center on Fri, 2006-10-20 22:01
OCON Boston event is now FREE for students!
The Jihad Against the West: The Real Threat and the Right Response
A three-day conference event
This event is now FREE for students.
Objectivist Conferences is proud to invite you to this important weekend event.
As the fifth anniversary of Sept. 11 is observed this week, we see our leaders, intellectuals and TV commentators ignoring or denying the meaning of this world-changing atrocity. Instead of identifying and dealing with the deadly threat, our leaders are engaged in shifting blame, pressure-group politics, and deliberations over which cosmetics are permitted to airline passengers. Meanwhile, Islamicist fanatics recruit ever-more followers sworn to our destruction; American soldiers continue to die as Islamic totalitarianism increases its power in Iraq; and the world's premier terror-sponsoring regime works unhindered to acquire nuclear weapons. Amid the noise and confusion, the need for a clear, focused and principled response is more urgent than ever.
Those who attend this conference will find an array of prominent speakers and experts who have refused to submit to intimidation, and whose voices are at the forefront of the pivotal ideological battle to defend Western civilization against the forces of jihad. Their presentations will expose not only the implacable barbarity of Islamic totalitarianism-but also the corrupt, evasive appeasement that continues to enable the rise of jihadist ideology. Join us in this call to action on the most important geopolitical issue of our time.
Students: There is NO admission cost for the panel discussion or for any of the lectures held at the Boston World Trade Center. Free admission to Yaron Brook's Oct. 22 lecture is available through the Ford Hall Forum only.
Events will take place at Tufts University, Boston's World Trade Center and Faneuil Hall, concluding with a lecture by Yaron Brook at the Ford Hall Forum.
