Common Sense Society is an international network that promotes liberty, prosperity, and beauty—aspirational ideas that are indispensable to human flourishing and happiness. With a community-focused model across North America and Europe, we educate 21st-century generations and inform public discourse. Members of the Common Sense Society discuss current topics in public life through regular meetings, discussions, panel discussions, lectures, workshops, film screenings, and book launches. We do not want to be passive observers of the development of our civilization, but we want to shape the vision of sustainable freedom ourselves.Learn more
Common Sense Society was founded as a debating forum in 2009 by a group of American and European university students. They aimed to explore the ideas that have shaped our history and will greatly influence our future. In doing so, CSS became a celebration of the moral, social, political, and cultural inheritance which has formed our common civilization.
Today, Common Sense Society has spread across Europe and North America. Our National Branches offer different resources and programming, but our mission is the same: Advance the ideas of liberty, prosperity, and a culture that fosters human happiness—aspirations that all people, in all places, can achieve.
