The Nightwatchman society, a classical liberal meetup group in Sri Lanka, has launched a book club in Colombo. The book club generally meets every other month on the first Wednesday of the month.
The very first meeting of the book club took place on 10th of July 2019 at the Royal College Skills Centre in Colombo. The book under discussion was “Classical Liberalism: A Primer” by Dr Eamon Butler. The discussion focused on areas like the role of the state in society and new challenges to the classical liberal worldview such as the emergence of hate speech online.
The participants then chose the next reading for the club as “Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal”, a collection of essays edited by Russian-American philosopher Ayn Rand. The second meeting is scheduled to take place on the 4th of September 2019.
