Aaron Ginn on the 2014 Reboot Conference and Conservatarian Millennials


“People feel like they are less free than ever, and thats concerning because thats what makes this country great.” So says Aaron Ginn of Lincoln Labs.

Ginn is one of the co-founders of Lincoln Labs and one of the chief organizers of the 2014 Lincoln Labs' Reboot Conference, held July 18-20 in San Francisco, California. He sat down with ReasonTV's Nick Gillespie to talk about how the Reboot conference is targeting young, tech-savvy millennia’s, and challenging them to get excited about Liberty ideas.

“I think the movement is going forward, I think people in the tech community are more or less coming out of the closet that they may not want government in every part of their life.”

About 6:00 minutes.

  1. Good luck to him.

  2. I think this article is missing a poll.

  3. I bet “Conservatarians” are about as sincere as “Liberaltarians” were. That is, it will last until the day after the election before they instantly go back to openly despising libertarains.

    1. No one despises libertarians more than libertarians.

    2. Other than “radical”, I can’t think of any modifier you can attach to “libertarian” that doesn’t dilute, if not negate, the term.

      Liberaltarian: I’m a libertarian on anything that proggy/lefty/liberals don’t think the government should control.

      Conservatarian: I’m a libertarian on anything the conservatives don’t think the government should control.

  4. If he believes in freedom, why did he name his organization after a brutal dictator?

    1. Maybe he thinks brutal dictators who end slavery are cool when they’re not actually brutal dictators. I dunno.

      1. No no no, you forgot the Rothbardian-DiLorenzo-Rockwell narrative wherein you’re supposed to play the dandy and regard Lincoln as a brutal tyrant while sympathizing with Hamas.

      2. Lincoln is not the only tyrannical President (others that come to mind: Jackson, Wilson, Roosevelt), but to ignore his transgressions because slavery was abolished sorta-kinda-not-really by him is dishonest (since the one does not negate the other) and disingenuous (since the war began with no intention to abolish slavery completely).

      3. Maybe he thinks brutal dictators who end slavery are cool when they’re not actually brutal dictators. I dunno.

        I guess you’re okay with him committing genocide against vampire-folk, then. You bigot.

    2. I was going to ask, why did he name his organization after a huge FFRDC in Mass.? Does he think government spending and liberty go hand in hand?
