Thoughts Upon The Mode Of Education Proper In A Republic
The tragedy in Las Vegas is more easily assessed by admitting that we have degenerated in our educational system; because of a lack of knowledge, we see the results in our intentional move away from Founders Original Intent. As I began last week to talk about Witherspoon as a Founder and educator, this week I begin to discuss the treatise written by the gent that got Witherspoon to come to Princeton.
I’m not going to be long in the promo. Simply the key words are ‘inculcate’, ‘Liberty’, ‘Patriotism’, ‘Christianity’, ‘constitutionalism’ and ‘Republic’. I’m not going to get into the depth of it this week but… the battle of education in truth is not new; it was a battle even in 1786. Hmmm, maybe that is why we saw constitutionalism degenerate by the early 1800’s! I’m inclined to go with what Benjamin Rush has to say for our Republic.
As much as the national events are important – it is even more critical that we look at what is happening locally. I speak to the most important elected position there is: The Precinct Committee Person. As I get to the discussion of what SACPS is, our students, our Posterity need to understand that local governance is the key to maintaining our Liberties and that the Precinct person is the first elected official to represent the community.
As promised from last week I talk about the more complete introduction of the ‘Samuel Adams Center for Political Science.’ The web site http://sacps.org is in its gestation stages. In the references I’ll give you a bit more but in a quick statement: It is about the youth! Developing leaders through mentorship in Foundational Truths as extrapolated from the writings and life of the ‘Father of the American Revolution.’ Is it interesting that our enemies absolutely understood the historical value of Samuel Adams? Not in a way that he and his Patriot Peers will develop leadership, entrepreneurship and policy concept studies for middle school through grad-school in First Principles of Foundational Political Science. Remember that Saul Alinskey adds Sam Adams into the list of “the great world leaders of change of the past centuries”. With that, hear why SACPS has come to fruition and how you can either participate or contribute. Continue reading →
As we consider all of the verdicts of guilt manifested by the ministers of the new nationalist religion, we must look back in history at Augustine, the Bishop of Hippo. Today I’m talking about the new national ‘statist’ religion and … Continue reading →
If I had a pulpit I would most likely bore my congregation because I would ‘inculcate’ them with this one sermon that I talk about on this program. I would press on this sermon until I was fully satisfied that … Continue reading →
