Ten years after the Supreme Court's infamous eminent domain decision, Kelo v. New London, Timothy and Christina Sandefur's Cornerstone of Liberty surveys the landscape of property rights in the United States, from redevelopment projects that seize people's homes and businesses for the benefit of politically-connected developers, to environmental regulations that forbid people from building homes on land they supposedly own, to asset-forfeiture laws that let the police seize property involved in a crime even if the owner is not accused of any wrongdoing.

Your dinner table is set with genetically modified foods. What exactly does that mean … and should you be concerned for your health?
The organic food movement grows every year. Many people are attracted to its acclaimed health benefits and superior produce compared to more ordinary foods. Organically grown food is particularly favored over genetically modified foods (GMOs). Indeed, it is hard to find an upscale restaurant or grocery store that does not loudly proclaim its non-GMO status.
Yet, is there any real health benefit to organic and non-GMO foods? The answer (perhaps shockingly to foodies) is no. The media and Internet have been alive for years with the supposed horrific side effects of eating GMOs, with so-called experts claiming they cause all kinds of disease, including cancer. But these “experts” rarely, if ever, have any data to back up their claims. In fact, the one major study that offered some credible evidence of negative health effects from GMOs was ultimately discredited and has since been retracted.
Learn at this event how GMOs have helped us feed a growing world population and protect the environment … and will continue to do so.
