Auckland Liberty on the Rocks: The Brazilian Journey to Liberty

 

e71aac5385706795022181ee8083d0e0

One of the most successful libertarian movements in world presently hails from Brazil.

If you want to hear why, then join us at the regular Auckland Liberty on the Rocks tomorrow night, Wednesday, to hear why:

Liberty on the Rocks is a happy hour for liberty-minded folks looking to meet others, build their knowledge and friendships over beers, food and great conversation.
Join us anytime between 6-9 PM at De Poste in Mount Eden. Everyone is welcome! This is a very informal happy hour although we do bring in speakers for about 30-minutes each night and sometimes host activities/games. We are always welcoming to newcomers and anyone interested in the ideas of liberty, peace and voluntary interaction.
THIS WEEK WE FEATURE ADRIAN MELO FROM BRAZIL
Now a proud Aucklander, Mr Melo will outline his journey from “spiritual Marxism” to becoming an Objectivist/libertarian, as well as presenting an overview of the current Brazilian political scenario.
The son of a Marxist father and a Kardecist (spiritist) mother, Adrian joined the Workers Party - which came to run Brazil from 2003 until 2016 - thus becoming a very pro-active leftist. After the passing of his father in 2012, Adriano came in contact with Ayn Rand and has since come to the "dark side" of promoting freedom, reason and individualism.

Auckland Liberty on the Rocks is on the first Wednesday of every month.

Join us for beer, conversation and great company – including a surprise guest from London who can answer every question you’ve ever had about Brexit!

WHAT: Adriano Melo - Brazilian Journey to Liberty
WHERE: De Poste Belgian Beer Cafe, 466 Mt Eden Rd
WHEN: Wednesday Feb 1st, from 6pm

All welcome!

  1. It is good to see the Brazilian people embracing liberty. Without individual liberty we are nothing but slaves to the state, yet in many western countries including NZ, there seems to be a continual move to a state controlled state which it seems, is endorsed by the people, a nanny state.I think that the majority of people want a gov't that will look after them from cradle to grave, to be the great messiah.It seems that people have lost the ability to think for themselves and run their own lives.People need to regain their pride ,that they can survive on their own wits and not be dependent on nanny state.People need to get their inspiration from the person that they see in the mirror.
