Constitution 101

I’ve spent a part of my time during the past ten weeks taking an online  course on the U.S. Constitution. Presented free by Hillsdale College this course is worth your time. The videos are high quality live lectures prepared especially for this series. Constitutional professors from Hillsdale present the lectures  with skill and enthusiasm.

The course is not easy, but nothing that is worthwhile ever is easy. Reading assignments, and quizzes go with each lecture. Students may e-mail questions to Hillsdale for a few days after the lecture, and answered in an online video by the lecturer.

It has been fifty-six years since my Civics classes in high school, and I felt it was time to review. I am not sorry I did. The Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution are two of history’s greatest lessons. There is no government on this earth that has survived successfully as long as the United States, and it is attributable to these well conceived documents.

For the past one hundred years a movement called Progressivism has been working to undermine the country by demeaning the Constitution, and they are making considerable inroads to change the meaning of the following.

“…We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. . . .”

Take the online course from Hillsdale, it is free, and it will refresh your belief in America’s foundation.

  2. I’m going to sign up! It’s been 40 years since I taught this. In 40 years I’ve noticed that Progressive activism has eroded the freedoms once taken for granted. Should be a kick! Thanks for pointing me there.

  3. Grumpa, it would seem to me that ” Affirrmative Action ” sets one class of people above others. Where is the, all are created equal? You cannot legislate Liberty and Freedom. Chuck

    • Progressivism and the US Constitution conflict with each other. They cannot be married.
