Left, Right, and Libertarian in America Libertarianism, the philosophy of personal and economic freedom, has deep roots in American history and Western civilization. Today, with socialism, protectionism, white nationalism, even fascism, back in style, libertarianism, claims David Boaz, executive vice president of the Cato Institute, speaks for the liberalism that formed the modern world: free markets, free trade, free speech, tolerance, and equal rights. And with left and right both moving to polarized extremes, libertarianism may speak for the broad center of American politics: peaceful and tolerant people who have no interest in raising taxes, telling their neighbors who they can marry, or policing the world.

Joshua White, associate professor at Johns Hopkins who previously served as senior advisor for South Asia in the Obama White House and at the Pentagon, will discuss the future of the U.S.-India partnership in the age of Trump-and beyond.

Fascist Politics Fascism has a definite historical and conceptual structure that belies its use as a mere pejorative. Jason Stanley, professor of philosophy at Yale University and author of "How Fascism Works: The Politics of Us and Them" will discuss what is fascist politics, why, across time and place, is it so attractive, and who are its victims.
