Why The New Title?
My readers are probably wondering why I have changed the title of our blog from the Chicago Freedom Forum to the Chicago Freedom And Reason Forum. Reflecting on prior posts, I came to realize that a reoccurring theme is the flawed reason, divorced from experience and empirical truth behind most unsound policies. And I have come to see that unconstrained freedom, not tempered by reason and moderation leads to libertinism and disorder which engenders social, economic and political authoritarianism. Only with reason and truth can freedom be maximized, can liberty be sustained.
