ABSTRACT
The article highlights the Philadelphia Society's 16th annual meeting held in Chicago, Illinois which focused on conservatism and libertarianism. Speaker Robert Nisbet asserted that conservatives and libertarians share several prejudices including resentment of government intrusions and distaste for mass democracy. On the other hand, economist Murray Rothbard asserted that libertarianism does not pretend to be a complete moral theory.
