Liberty: This is the autonomous spirit by which you do every action in your life. Without it you can do nothing. To live in liberty is to engage mutualistically with others, to associate freely and voluntarily, to have open and honest dialogue, and to seek peace but be prepared for defense.
Logos: Reason, discourse, thought, word. More deeply, the threefold manifestation of Truth: the ordered structure of the universe, perhaps ordered by a more-than-human mind; the understanding of that ordered structure in the human mind, which reflects the first; and the communication of that understanding through dialogue.
Liberty & Logos is a pursuit of human freedom and truth seeking. We aim to take a radical approach to understanding the political, ecological, spiritual, social, and psychological crises of our present era with the aim of liberation: to become who we truly are. In doing so, we will interrogate conventional views of history and current events, explore new and old experiments in human freedom, and seek to understand the relationship between human nature and the Cosmos.
