LevelUp is about principles and practices for excelling in life and fighting for liberty.

And, when you think about it, these are the most important things in the world.

Excelling in life includes building a career you love, developing great friendships, creating a wonderful romantic relationship, enjoying your favorite recreational activities, and perhaps raising a family…

Whatever makes you come alive and thrive—that’s your “excel in life.”

And, of course, liberty—the freedom to act on your own judgment—is the essential political condition required for you to excel in life. If (and to the extent) people or governments force you to act against your best judgment, you can’t act in accordance with your best judgment; you can’t excel in life. Likewise for everyone else. That (in a nutshell) is why coercion is evil and freedom is so important.

These two profoundly crucial values—freedom and flourishing—along with the principles and practices that support them, are the focus of this truly unique conference.

Here’s what’s on the agenda for LevelUp 2024 (Atlanta, June 19–22):

  • Loving Your Life: A Framework for Flourishing—in which I’ll integrate the key principles for living a life you love with those of rational philosophy
