Events this Summer

The Abbeville Institute has a tradition of an annual summer school. This upcoming summer the institute is holding a summer school on the Southern tradition and the renewal of America. The summer school runs from July 12 through 17. It takes place in Seabrook Island, South Carolina. More information can be found here.

The Mises Institute also hosts its annual Mises University July 24 through 30.

We also have an event in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is the annual FreedomFest by Dr. Mark Skousen. This year it takes place at Planet Hollywood, as it has since 2013. It is scheduled to run July 13 through 16. One of the most interesting elements at this year's FreedomFest is a mock trial on global warming.

Quote of the Month

Says Mr. Donald John Trump:

We went from mistakes in Iraq to Egypt to Libya, to President Obama’s line in the sand in Syria. Each of these actions have helped to throw the region into chaos and gave ISIS the space it needs to grow and prosper. Very bad. It all began with a dangerous idea that we could make western democracies out of countries that had no experience or interests in becoming a western democracy.

We tore up what institutions they had and then were surprised at what we unleashed.

The Author of Don Quixote

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra: Don Quixote
Four centuries ago today, the author of Don Quixote, Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, passed away.

It is telling that Google today celebrates the so-called Earth Day instead of one of Western civilization's greatest writers.

Google: Earth Day 2016

In Don Quixote, Cervantes makes fun of "fighting against windmills." But I say, if the issue is important enough, pound away at those windmills. Eventually, they may break.

Remember what Dale Carnegie once said:

Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.
