The Lockean Project 

Where liberty and the written word are stronger than any repressive force.  

Letters of Liberty: The Lockean Project was organized in 2021 to provide a platform for the often voiceless or blacklisted defenders of individual liberty. In an era where the flow of information is continuously being silenced or censored, it is crucial to find new ways to fight the old injustices of intolerance and allow intellectual diversity to flourish again.

We invite authors to submit published and unpublished letters and short articles, especially from daily newspapers. Please identify the source and publishing date. If a periodical failed to publish your material, still provide the name of the intended journal and year.

This project was founded to advance the philosophy of John Locke (1632 –1704). Considered the most influential of the Enlightenment philosophers, Locke is known as the “Father of Liberalism.” Locke’s classical liberal ideals of free speech and tolerance were considered so radical that his 1689 Two Treatises of Government was published anonymously. At the time, those ideals were perceived as so dangerous that anyone uttering them could be imprisoned or even executed.
