Breitbart Tech editor and libertarian hero Milo Yiannopoulos was the headline speaker on Tuesday night at the opening event of the Young British Heritage Society – a group set up with the aim of preserving British heritage, economic freedom and individual civil liberties.
The conservative journalist recently found himself lambasted by the liberal media following his permanent barring from Twitter after his criticisms of Ghostbusters cast member Leslie Jones.
However the self-proclaimed most fabulous super-villain on the internet found himself in full voice once again as he spoke at the society’s inaugural event.
According to the Young British Heritage Society website, where students are free to join and others are encouraged to donate to the cause, the group is a non-partisan conservative youth organisation run for students, by students.
Their goal is to “encourage young people to freely express their views and opinions without any regard for political correctness.”
They seek to promote the objectives and values of classical liberalism, traditional conservatism and in particular the primacy of individual civil liberties and economic freedom.
They aim to rectify the cumbersome level of political correctness which plagues university life and which is simply “the ideologically motivated policing of language on and off campus [which] is used to curb honest and frank discussions under the guise of courtesy and preventing “hate speech”.
The group also aims to abide by economical libertarian principles as opposed to purely socials ones.
“YBHS is a strong advocate of laissez-faire capitalism and sound economic policies with minimal state intervention.
“Many of our supporters subscribe to the Austrian School of economic thought which challenges the key tenets of the neoclassical synthesis which constitutes most taught university courses on economics.”
In addition the society “seeks to guarantee the fundamental civil liberties of all people regardless of their background. These liberties include, but are not limited to the right to life, liberty and property.
Nowadays, the government poses a serious threat to our privacy with efforts to increase unwarranted surveillance and limit the rights of people to speak their minds.”
