The story is fairly familiar—the superhero, T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) must save the world by…
All scholars dream of having one or more disciples who will make sure their legacy is kept alive and their works and theories prominently trumpeted before the public eye.

Stephen Cox, editor, Liberty Magazine
“It's Burning Man for Libertarians, or a Gathering of the Lost 10 Tribes. It's a ‘Jerusalem dig’ for agnostics and God-seekers alike. Or a World's Fair for Alternative Answers...but always fun.”
"You libertarians know how to have a good time with dancing, skits, mock trials, magic acts, yoga, silver dollars, and fun debates, all in the world's most laissez faire city. It was incredible".
“I love FreedomFest - wonderfully interesting people and non-stop intellectual stimulation. The debates are great. Keep doing them. I’m really looking forward to July in Las Vegas”.
