New APSA statement regarding President Trump's executive order "Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States"
APSA condemns the new Executive Order issued on March 6, 2017, entitled “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States,” and strongly urges President Trump to rescind it. Like the administration’s earlier Executive Order issued on January 27, this new order continues to generate detrimental effects on colleagues and students with whom we teach, write, and collaborate. It undermines academic freedom in the most fundamental way by restricting the ability of scholars to meet, learn and exchange ideas on campuses of American colleges and universities. As scholars and teachers, we deplore the interruption of research, teaching, and intellectual engagement that this order causes. Read full statement. Visit this link for travel ban resources.
For instance, classical liberalism (also known as laissez-faire liberalism ,  ) is a doctrine stressing individual freedom and limited government . This includes the importance of human rationality, individual property rights , free markets , natural rights , the protection of civil liberties , constitutional limitation of government, and individual freedom from restraint as exemplified in the writings of John Locke , Adam Smith , David Hume , David Ricardo , Voltaire , Montesquieu and others. According to the libertarian Institute for Humane Studies , "the libertarian, or 'classical liberal,' perspective is that individual well-being, prosperity, and social harmony are fostered by 'as much liberty as possible' and 'as little government as necessary.'"  For anarchist political philosopher L. Susan Brown "Liberalism and anarchism are two political philosophies that are fundamentally concerned with individual freedom yet differ from one another in very distinct ways. Anarchism shares with liberalism a radical commitment to individual freedom while rejecting liberalism's competitive property relations."
