"Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety,
deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
- Benjamin Franklin,
'Pennsylvania Assembly's letter to its colonial governor', 1755.

"The spread of evil is the symptom of a vacuum. Whenever evil wins, it is only by default: by the moral failure of those who evade the fact that there can be no compromise on basic principles." - Ayn Rand, 'For the New Intellectual', 1963

"If we now all defiantly make the content and images the jihadists wish to ban widely and permanently available across the web, the attackers will have failed. They may have taken the lives of the editor and cartoonists of Charlie Hebdo, for which we grieve, but they will not have taken their freedom." - Onkar Ghati, 'Voice of Reason' (blog), January, 2015

ARSIRN Distinguished Scholars Series
January Special Event

Free Speech and the Battle for Western Culture

Yaron Brook,

executive director, the Ayn Rand Institute, will explore the reasons why the right to free speech is being attacked; why it is imperative that we properly defend freedom of speech; and why we must defend our unconditional right to freedom of thought and freedom of speech. When individuals are threatened and murdered for daring to speak, anyone who values his own life and freedom must stand with, and speak for, the victims.
It does not matter whether you agree or disagree with the particular book, cartoon or movie that they seek to silence.

Our Annual RANDSDAY Dinner, Monday February 2nd,
Time and Place TBA

Perkins Restaurant
3585 Pine Ridge Road

The PURPOSE of the Ayn Rand Society for Individual Rights of Naples (ARSIRN) is to provide educational venues for studying the ideas underlying individual rights, particularly their moral foundation as first identified by Ayn Rand; to provide a social environment for like-minded individuals; and to raise funds for the Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights (ARC)

ARSIRN's GOAL is to provide sufficient, on-going funding for ARC to make Naples a regular stop for speakers from the Ayn Rand Center and the Ayn Rand Institute.

The Society's STRATEGY is to reach out to the broader southwest Florida community through public events, including one major fund-raising event each year.

ARSIRN is open to all readers of Ayn Rand's fiction and/or nonfiction who are sympathetic to her views and wish to pursue their implications. To join with us just complete our support form.

NOTE: We are centered in Naples, Florida, deep in the southwest part of the state. We have members from Port Charlotte, Sarasota, Tampa and St. Pete . . . and welcome others — in spirit if not in body.
