  • Liberal Conversations with Luisa Tavlas

    Liberal Conversations with Luisa Tavlas
    16 Feb 2018

    1) What is liberalism for you and what made you join the movement and set your career on it?

    To me, liberalism goes hand in hand with liberty. It is the liberty to live my life the way that I choose, as long as I am not harming other individuals; the liberty to pursue my dreams in an environment that is hospitable to such a pursuit; and the liberty to be part of an open society that is receptive of new ideas, and welcoming of all individuals--regardless of race, religious affiliation, gender, or sexual identification. As such, my liberty is firmly entrenched in that of others; it is not possible to live in a liberal society when others are not afforded the same basic human rights of tolerance, and the ability to pursue my dreams, that I have been afforded.

  • Greece 2021 – Greece 2021 - Agenda for Freedom and Prosperity

    Greece 2021 – Greece 2021 - Agenda for Freedom and Prosperity
    10 Jan 2018

    Semiology

    In 2021, we will celebrate two hundred years since the declaration of the Greek Revolution. The liberal ideology of 1821 inspired the most progressive political documents of the time. With those ideas partially implemented in Greece, it is obvious that there is a big deviation between Greece’s first steps and today’s situation, where crisis highlighted the absence of liberal ideas.

    Initiative

    In KEFiM we believe that the day for Greece to return to its liberal and democratic roots has come. It is time for our country to move forward.
