ABOUT

Prometheus – Das Freiheitsinstitut (the Liberty Institute) is a think tank which aims for spreading the idea of liberty. It is our goal to strengthen the value of self-responsibility in our society. We are convinced that taking responsibility for one's life is a pivotal element of human dignity. Therefore we take a stand for individual liberty, a strong civil society, a free market order, the rule of law and the abolition of a paternalistic state. Prometheus wants to contribute to building a free society.
