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.
