Wyoming Liberty Group
About Wyoming Liberty Group
The Wyoming Liberty Group champions individuals and independent voluntary associations with goals akin to our own. We believe that such associations, sometimes called mediating structures, can often serve both as a buffer and as a conduit between the person and the state, to the edification of each. Reflective, respectful, empirically-oriented communication is our touchstone. Consequently, while we are inclined toward individuals, toward particulars, toward localism, we also assume a respectful versus adversarial stance toward public servants because of our faith in mutual education as a practical grace in civil society. About 180 years ago Alexis de Tocqueville, an astute Frenchman visiting our country, marveled at the habit of Americans to spontaneously form endless numbers of constructive voluntary associations without ever waiting for government directives. At Wyoming Liberty, we see ourselves as participants in this tradition of conjoint, independent endeavors toward a common cherished end, the preservation of freedom.
We believe in the values of individual dignity and personal liberty. Therefore, we encourage individual responsibility for involvement in public matters. We want to become a foundational influence in state policy research and education, as well as become a source of direct contact between private citizens and public officials. We invite communication and advocacy of first principles and constitutional mandates so as to encourage appreciation of our state constitution and the historical/cultural values that are the very source of our liberty.
