The Property and Freedom Society

And so the journey will shortly begin to the Hotel Karia Princess, to attend the annual conference of the Property and Freedom Society.

This leaves me with a seventh pilgrimage to Auburn to get the full set of:

=> Ayn Rand's apartment where she wrote Atlas Shrugged
=> Murray Rothbard's New York apartment
=> The site of Ludwig von Mises' Vienna home
=> The quadrangle at Vienna University
=> Ludwig von Mises' New York apartment
=> The annual Property and Freedom Society conference

And don't give me that 'You're simply using Austrianism to fulfil an otherwise empty quasi-religious void in your futile and meaningless life' stuff. I am well aware of the possibility. But still, there are worse hobbies to have.

Wish me luck.

Hi "Jack",

It was great meeting you and your family at the PFS in Bodrum last weekend. I am pretty sure that you loved it as much as I did. Let's hope HHH will invite us again for next year's edition ;-)

Good luck with everything, and see you again (maybe at the Paris Freedom Fest in September or the London Liberty Conference in October...)

this is "the photographer", it was nice meeting you and looking forward to your post on the conference.

E-mail me too. Take care.


P.S. Tom Cruise? Seriously? ;-)

Hi Vincent,

After my sartorial inelegance and the "other" incident with which you were involved, I think our chances are slim. We shall have to host a Molinarian conference in Antwerp, instead! ;-)

Hi Paul,

Yes, Tom Cruise. Seriously. Well, at least that's my 'residual self image' whenever I can avoid mirrors for a few days; :-)

Well, I was thinking more of a Hugh Grant :-)
