Includes an introduction by Joey Clark. Recorded in St. Petersburg, Florida on October 22, 2021.

The weekend revolves around a discussion of strategy. Nearly 25 years ago, Professor Hans-Hermann Hoppe delivered his famous "What Must Be Done" speech on the pressing topic of how—and whether—to engage the state. Today his prescription for a bottom-up ideological revolution beginning at the local level rings more true than ever. With Hoppe's admonitions in mind, all of our speakers and panels will consider three vital questions: Where are we? How Bad is it? And what should we do now?
