The Mises Circle, a libertarian group that meets in the European Parliament, is running a competition to find the best new definition of Libertarianism. Here are the details….
- Write a definition of what you consider “Libertarianism” to be in a maximum of 100 words
- The language must be English
- It must be in grammatically coherent sentences
- It must be mostly or entirely a positive definition. That is, it must not be a statement of what libertarianism is not or is against, eg “Government is evil”
- It should not contain unexplained neologisms or acronyms
- It should not reference extant political parties, eg “Socialism is what Labour does”
The competition is to be judged by Nigel Farage, and the prize is – and I quote – “€50 cash (tax free)”.
To enter, send your definition, name and contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on the 13th February 2011.
There is one catch – if you win, you have to collect your prize in person in Brussels, so maybe it would be better to view this as €50 towards the cost of a trip to the heart of darkness our beloved European capital.
