The Origins and Importance of Individual Rights
Liberalism is under attack. The Right wants to “own the Libs,” and the Left wants to disown them. Yet individualism is the basis of human and civil rights. The individual is the primary social unit in Liberal thought. In this era of tribalism, recognizing individual rights may be exactly what we need.

This is a great virtual event that you can do from the comfort of home.
We are exposed to a great deal of propaganda designed to divide the nation. A focus on individual rights protected by the Constitution can bring us together again. We must rebuild the Liberal middle so we can win elections in the future.
Author, Attorney, and Activist Rich Procida will overview the origins of Western Liberalism and the importance of defending the Constitution and Liberal democracy. He will rely on historian and political philosopher Larry Seidentop’s book “Inventing the Individual: The Origins of Western Liberalism.” While Marxist scholars, like Angela Davis, describe individualism as “insidious,” without the individual, we have no rights.
Join our discussion as we ask whether individual rights and liberties are essential to freedom, or whether the rights of the individual undermine group rights and social justice. Rich Procida will give a short presentation followed by a group discussion. Everyone is invited to participate.
