Power of freedom by one of our Patrons, Mart LaarEurope has steadily moved towards freedom and liberties during the last centuries. This has not of course been an easy road – it has been full of conflicts and wars, disaster and challenges. Sometimes people have had to go through totalitarian regimes to understand how valuable freedom is. After WWII when ideas of state planning and control developed in European totalitarian states, the ideas of Hayek, Mises and Erhard rose. The people of the former totalitarian countries knew how valuable freedom was and that at the end only this works. These ideas changed Europe and made Europe what it is today. Now Europe is facing challenges again. While Western Europe, or parts of it, look stagnated sometimes, the former communist countries are representing more liberties and more freedom. They have lived in totalitarianism and know how bad that is. This is why they know how valuable freedom is and through this they can give new energy to all Europe. So let us make all Europe strong again through the LVMI-Europe!
