The Declaration and the Constitution





This is the first lecture of the “Introduction to the Constitution” series from  Dr. Larry Arnn the Hillsdale College President.  He argues that the American republic’s meaning and proper method of operation is found in two documents, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. He introduces the two main principles of the Declaration–Nature and Equality–and explains how they are key to understanding the arrangements of government found in the Constitution.

    “In the great wars… our students have always rallied to take part in those wars.”

    Vietnam? Evil, disgusting, unconstitutional and wicked war by warmonger Johnson. Korea? Evil war. WWI? Evil war. Iraq war? Demonic warmongering.

    Whatever you do, don’t send your children to this institution.

    God says; Blessed are the peacemakers.
    This institution is anything but “peacemakers”, isn’t it.
