Liberty Forum Poland
The Liberty Forum Poland Association is created by people who have been involved in activities of non-governmental organizations and the promotion of liberal ideas. The idea to create our organization came up in autumn of 2018 and was formalized in the last days of the year in one of the apartments in the Warsaw Targówek.
We are recognizing that the liberal ideas are unpopular in our country and that the public debate is dominated by trend much less favorable to the concept of free market, individual freedom, equality before the law and individualism. In that case, we decided to take matters into our own hands and create a platform for young liberals.
We want to realize our mission through educational activities, debates, reports, organising events and journalistic activity. We want to show that freedom is very important and it can be pretty cool. If you agree with us and you also think that the role of government in our life should be as small as possible, you should contact us. Maybe we can do something nice together.
Ronald Reagan used to say that we are always a generation from the loss of freedom. Unfortunately, he was quite right. Good ideas don’t defend themselves, they need professional attorneys.
In the XVIII century, creators of the Enlightenment came up with ideas that revolutionized our lives: freedom of trade and management, limited and minimal state, rule of law, power division, freedom of speech, individual rights. Next 300 year turned out to be the most spectacular success in human history. Within a few generations, the majority of human population improved their quality of life from subsistence minimum to relative prosperity and the possibility of realizing their dreams. Unfortunately, these ideas are unpopular today. Everywhere we can hear accusation against liberalism and calls to increase the role of state at the expense of liberty.
As young people, we are gaining a lot from liberals ideas. We can travel freely all over the world, work everywhere and however we want, develop ourselves in a way which was never seen before. We want to show that freedom, responsibility or individualism are not just abstract concepts in the field of political thought, but real benefits for everyone of us.
We realize our mission through educational activities, debates, reports, organization of events and journalistic activity. We show that freedom can be cool.
