    Liberty without virtue is no liberty at all and only leads to growing tyranny and moral decay. In turn, to say that liberty requires limited government is to simultaneously say that liberty involves the virtue of engaging in love for our neighbors and caring for one’s community. This care is itself an investment in and exercise of virtue. We believe that virtue and liberty are harmonious. Part of Liberty's mission includes training in the values, knowledge, and skills essential to impact the world. In the world, a leap in liberty has been the mainspring of unprecedented human progress, not only for Americans, but for people around the world. Our 4th annual Public Policy conference focuses on the development and installation of virtue in all areas and all levels of the public policy context.

    Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all. Religion and morality enjoin this conduct; and can it be, that good policy does not equally enjoin it - It will be worthy of a free, enlightened, and at no distant period, a great nation, to give to mankind the magnanimous and too novel example of a people always guided by an exalted justice and benevolence.—George Washington, Farewell Address.
