John Lewis on "Government Medicine: The Metaphysical Attack on a Profession"

Please join us on Saturday, May 14th for a FRO Supper Talk by historian John Lewis:

  • What: FRO Supper Talk by John Lewis on "Government Medicine: The Metaphysical Attack on a Profession"

  • When: Saturday, May 14th, 2011, 5 pm cash bar and social, 6-7 pm dinner buffet, 7:15 lecture with Q&A and more socializing afterward, wrap up by 10 pm

  • Where: Landry's Seafood, 7209 South Clinton Street, Englewood

About the lecture:

Many people agree that government control of medicine is a vicious attack on individual rights, and that the use of force against doctors is immoral as well as unconstitutional. But, this talk will maintain, the attack is far deeper: it is directed at the very nature of man as a thinking, goal-directed being. Government control of medicine undercuts the ability of doctors to use their minds in a first-handed way, and makes it impossible to project long-range goals on every level. This hard-hitting talk, motivated by first-hand personal experiences in medicine, will ask every thinking person to consider whether they want the United States to stay on a path leading to government control of their own personal health care.

Dr. Lewis is visiting associate professor in the Philosophy, Politics, and Economics Program at Duke University. He is an Anthem Fellow for Objectivist Scholarship, and adjunct associate professor of business at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His recent book is Nothing Less than Victory: Decisive Wars and the Lessons of History (Princeton University Press, 2010).
