on December 20, 2010.
Brad Linaweaver on "The Libertarian Vanguard."
Brad Linaweaver advocates a "Libertarian Vanguard" -- an "information clearinghouse" to inform and inspire libertarian activists in their struggle against Communism in all its forms. He stresses the need for freedom lovers to get raw, unfiltered information to argue and act effectively in their social, cultural, philosophical, and political battles.
This Vanguard should be a place where libertarians of all striped, and their allies, may engage in non-adversarial debate and inquiry, attaining to "certain minimum standards" and "uncorrupted by Neocon elements and attempted influences."
Brad will also touch upon his original topic -- "The Fabulous Fifties in Film: How Hollywood Changed the Political Cultural Landscape in Time for the Incredibly Mixed Up Sixties." He adds that "since leaving Hollywood, I have paradoxically become an executive producer on a number of films. I will relate that to the general topic."
Finally, Brad will discuss "the accidental and minor libertarian victory of Election 2010," and his other projects: his continuing series of articles in Famous Monsters of Filmland, and his on-going radio project The Sound of Liberty, on which he collaborates with J. Kent Hastings.
He will explore the significance of the so-called "Tea Party" movement -- its promise and perils -- and the danger posed to "neophytes in the political realm," and hence the value of his proposed clearinghouse for our mutual benefit.
