College and university campuses may be deserted, but that isn’t stopping The Atlas Society CEO Jennifer Grossman from getting her message to students. She will be featured in a virtual talk at Claremont McKenna College on October 22, 2020, arguing that facts alone are no match for the seductive moral appeal of socialism. Instead, she will make the case that the argument against the “social justice” version of fairness requires a moral case for fairness premised on the inviolability of individual rights, the virtues of independence, reason, and achievement, as well as the ethics of benevolent self-interest. She will ensure that students understand that these tenets are more relevant than ever in a culture where envy, resentment, victimhood, and entitlement are on the rise – and being stoked and leveraged by politicians to increase government power in perpetuity.
