Time for Learning
There is an offer being made by one of our favorite institutions, Hillsdale College, that is a must for anyone interested in our country, its future and what we need to know to protect the principles that our Founders established over 200 years ago. If you believe that all my recent writings are just prejudiced rants, you owe it to yourself to check out this unusual opportunity to learn what our Constitution actually says and what the authors of the document meant when they finally hammered out an agreement over weeks of heated debate and reluctant compromise.
Hillsdale College is an independent, coeducational liberal arts college founded in 1844 in rural southern Michigan on a 200-acre campus with a student body of about 1,400. Its four-year curriculum leads to the bachelor of arts or bachelor of science degree. Adjacent to the campus is the modern primary and secondary school, Hillsdale Academy whose comprehensive Reference Guide is used in hundreds of schools throughout the country.
Hillsdale’ educational mission rests upon two principles: academic excellence and institutional independence. The College does not accept federal or state taxpayer subsidies for any of its operations. We are proud to remain steadfast in this policy at a time when almost every other institution of “higher learning” is increasingly dependent on government support.
One of the many contributions made by this illustrious institution since 1972 is the publication of Imprimis, a free publication sent to over 2 million subscribers each month. The content is drawn from speeches delivered to Hillsdale-hosted events, both on-campus and off-campus.
Today they have announced a series of on-line lessons title “Constitution 101” featuring lectures from members of the school’s faculty in 10 installments of approximately 40 minutes beginning with the first on February 20th and the tenth and last on April 23rd. These lessons are free (obviously a small donation will be solicited) but, if you’re unable to pay anything you can actually enjoy the entire series for free.
Go to hillsdaleoffer.com and register for a great opportunity to learn about this historic document. We really are down to this today. Do we follow the laws and doctrines that our Founders laid out for us and have served us as we have grown to be the world’s leading nation, or do we fall into the trap of regarding it as out-dated and not appropriate for modern times. If you take the time to examine the full content you will see it is our only hope of slowing down this race to European Marxism we are now being directed to and begin to restore our nation to the glory that we have enjoyed for 200 years.
