Greetings Fellow Bay Area Libertarians,
Students for Liberty, UC Berkeley's libertarian student organization, is
proud to announce our third guest lecture of the spring 2011 semester.
Libertarian Party activist and sex worker Starchild will be speaking this
upcoming *Wednesday, April 6th *at *7 PM *in *209 Dwinelle Hall* on the
Berkeley campus. The title of Starchild's talk is "How to Stop Hurting*
Other Species Without Hating Our Own" (* or at least minimize harm).
Virtually no one likes to see puppies or kittens tortured and killed, but
beyond a narrow range of compassion-inducing cases, we often close our eyes
to the plights of non-humans. How concerned should we be about the
conditions in which members of other species live? Should they be considered
to have rights, and if so, what legal protections should they have? Are
there dangers inherent in a worldview that values other creatures for their
own sake, and how far is going too far? Libertarian activist, sex worker,
and self-described radical Starchild will discuss these and related ideas
and their implications for the libertarian movement.
Everyone is encouraged to attend. Check out our Facebook Event for more
