FreedomFest 2021: The World’s Largest Gathering of Free Minds
FreedomFest is an intense three and a half days, and it’s different from any conference you have ever attended. This year’s theme is fitting: Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise—where else can you attend yoga in the morning, listen to world-renowned speakers on finance or geopolitics after breakfast, choose from among a dozen breakout sessions with the world’s brightest thought leaders in the afternoon, watch a movie (and meet the director) during the day, and end the evening with karaoke? Since 2007, FreedomFest has been the leader in the liberty movement to bring together thousands of people committed to freedom—concerned citizens, educators, professionals, business leaders, filmmakers, politicians, celebrities, and policy makers.
“FreedomFest is an annual festival where free minds meet to celebrate great books, great ideas, and great thinkers in an open-minded environment. It is independent, non-partisan, and not affiliated with any organization or think tank,” says Valerie Durham, Executive Director. The event was started in 2002 by Durham’s parents—her father had been President of the Foundation for Economic Education, an organization of top think tanks but whose members were not sharing and connecting. “FreedomFest is one place and one time where everyone who cares about liberties gets together and shares about diverse topics ranging from political and economic to health, intellectual, and financial,” says Durham.
FreedomFest 2021 will be held in Rapid City, South Dakota, from July 21–25 and includes more than 260 top-ranked expert speakers, breakout sessions, debates, mock trials, Anthem film festival, and over 150 exhibitors at the Tradeshow for Liberty. Speakers include comedian JP Sears; Dave Rubin, host of the Rubin Report; Gov. Kristi Noem (SD); Larry Elder, host of the Larry Elder Show; Dr. Drew Pinsky; Dr. Jo Jorgensen, former presidential candidate; John Mackey, founder of Whole Foods Markets; and our very own publisher of Natural Nutmeg and Essential Naples, Dr. Diane Hayden. Dr. Hayden’s presentation is titled, “The New Psychology of Aging: Living Younger.”
Mya Olson, founder of Health Freedom South Dakota, is a featured speaker this year at FreedomFest with her speech, “History of the Medical Mafia.” Olson was inspired to create a health freedom organization because she felt lied to by the mainstream medical community. As a result of a vaccine injury, her first child spent over a year on Miralax, an over-the-counter laxative that contains polyethylene glycol 3350 (PEG 3350), which is linked to tremors, tics, obsessive-compulsive behaviors, and aggression in children following its use. Mya has heard countless stories about adults and children being bullied into procedures and dropped from pediatric practices if the parents refuse vaccines.
“Why do women no longer have a voice for their children, their parents, or themselves? We are a society that just wants a pill. How did we get here, and how do we get out of it?” asks Mya. Sadly, Mya’s sister-in-law passed away just a few days after receiving the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. healthfreedomsd.org
Jose Luis Cordeiro, author of the book La Muerte de la Muerte (the death of death), is also a featured speaker at FreedomFest 2021. Cordeiro states that by the year 2045, researchers will have figured out a way to not only stop aging, but reverse it. This will result in a huge cost reduction in healthcare, as 80% of one’s medical expenditures happen in the last five years of their life. Cordeiro believes that everyone has the right to life. “I do not plan to die; I plan to be younger in 20 years than I am today,” remarks Cordeiro.
Some of these revolutionary technologies that will extend lifespan include the ability to correct the genome with gene therapy, elimination of zombie or senescent cells that cause aging, inexpensive stem cell treatment, and epigenetic cell reprogramming. According to Cordeiro and other aging researchers, there are four genes that control the aging process. In one study by Dr. David Sinclair, a Harvard researcher, his team of geneticists were able to extend lifespan by two years in mice, which is equivalent to decades in humans. “Once we can reverse aging, it will be unstoppable,” says Cordeiro. “We are truly living between the last human mortal generation and the first immortal generation!”
FreedomFest attracts people of all ages and walks of life and across the political spectrum. It’s open to anyone who enjoys a wide interest in books, art, music, film, science, philosophy, economics, health, technology, business, law, politics, and more. This event will revolutionize your perspective, open your mind to new ideas, give you an action plan, and most importantly, inspire hope that our society and world can be a place of freedom. You’ll have deep and meaningful conversations with people you might otherwise never have met, and you’ll leave with an experience you can take forward into your life that you won’t get from social media, a news byte, or a book.
