Political Freedom: A Matter of Life and Death

Dr. Mary Ruwart shows how having political freedom is ultimately a humanitarian issue.  She talks about the history of poverty in the world, and the miracle of freedom in pulling the world out of poverty.

She gave her talk at CYCLE 15, an online libertarian conference hosted by Liberty.me and the International Society for Individual Liberty.

Dr. Ruwart asked, “What does wealth have to do with life and death?”

She continued, “The more money we have enables us to have a longer life expectancy . . . Wealth isn’t just about having fancy cars or fancy houses, it’s literally a matter of life and death.  And since freedom is what helps you create wealth, it also is a matter of life and death.”
