What is Liberalism Day?
It’s a day when classical liberals and libertarians will blog, tweet, and talk on a common theme: the word “liberal” used to mean something different than it does today.
What’s the goal of Liberalism Day?
To correct a misconception. Most people don’t know that “liberal” used to mean small government and free markets. If we all state this simple point at the same time, each in our own way, it could spread.
Why make a fuss about a word?
It’s not really about the word. It’s about using the word to illuminate an important ideological tradition.
What are the guidelines?
On (or near) June 16th you can blog, vlog, tweet, publish a paper, comment on a message board, make a gif, post a link, call in to a radio show – anything you’d like. Help the event spread by using the hashtag #LiberalismDay, and tell your friends and colleagues.
