Please join us for a lively discussion about how Isabel Paterson, Rose Wilder Lane, and Ayn Rand Found Liberty in an Age of Darkness
Critics of libertarianism argue that it is an ideology created by and for privileged white men. But the modern libertarian movement was founded and kept alive thanks to the writings and advocacy of three unstoppable women: Isabel Paterson, a literary critic; Rose Wilder Lane, a journalist; and Ayn Rand, a philosophical immigrant.
In 1943, Paterson published The God in the Machine, Lane The Discovery of Freedom, and Rand The Fountainhead. These three books changed the course of libertarianism in the United States.
Timothy Sandefur’s new book Freedom’s Furies tells the story of how this trio created a movement based on the principles of individualism and individual rights. Debunking the stereotypes of libertarians, Sandefur shows how these women inspired future generations to fight for freedom.
