Aspen Ideas Festival

By the People: Rebuilding Liberty Without Permission

Season 1 Episode 41 | 57m 34s

Have we come to the end of the American project as the founders intended it? Join social scientist Charles Murray, who worries that the essence of the American promise — liberty and the pursuit of happiness as the unalienable rights — has eroded with the rise of what he calls the “regulatory state.” Murray calls on civil society and the private sector to rebuild Americans’ traditional freedoms.
