The Freedom Summit offers a highly distinguished assortment of the best, brightest and most entertaining people in the freedom movement today. The Freedom Summit is an annual update on the current status of freedom in our world from several varied perspectives.

Socialism and other coercive centralized planning schemes have failed to improve and indeed worsened, the human condition. As such, the Freedom Summit does not encourage or promote any particular centralized plan to achieve freedom. Rather, the Freedom Summit encourages individuals to promote freedom in non-coercive ways which are best suited to their individual talents.
The Freedom Summit is a forum for the vigorous and peaceful exchange of ideas about how humans ought to interact with each other. People recently introduced to the concepts of freedom as well as lifelong supporters of freedom are encouraged to attend. Additionally, those who support a coercive government are also welcome to attend; and examine their views in light of the ideas and arguments presented.
