Federalist 58 by James Madison. 1. Under the proposed Constitution whose interests were represented by the U.S. Senate? Is it so today? If not, how might it be remedied & by what means? 2. How did the Constitution provide for updating representation in Congress? 3. Madison credits the U.S Constitution with assigning the greatest power, that of the “purse strings” to the U.S. House. In your opinion, how might the House assert that power to reduce the size & cost of government today? 4. Explain in your own words Madison’s warning against too many men serving in the House. How might his warning be applied today as calls abound for a more direct democracy & for scrapping the electoral college system? 5. Is democracy the form of government our Founders gave us or was it a republican form? Explain the difference.

WWI And the Second Fall of Man

WWI And the Second Fall of Man

DR. PAUL G. KENGOR, CENTER FOR VISION & VALUES On June 28, 1914, a Bosnian-Serb student named Gavrilo Princip killed Austrian archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, the duchess. It was the shot-heard-round-the-world, unleashing a series of events that by August 1914 embroiled Europe in war. That deadly summer unfolded 100 years ago, and the [...]

“Heaven Is For Real” and the Gospel of Life

BY DR. PAUL KENGOR I recently bought the book “Heaven is for Real” and saw the movie. That was unusual for me. I don’t typically do the books and movies everyone else is doing, especially the touchy-feely spiritual ones. Maybe it’s the snob in me, or, really, I just don’t like to do what the culture is doing. But this time, I made an [...]

Pete Seeger, Marxist minstrel

Pete Seeger, Marxist minstrel

PAUL G. KENGOR, CENTER FOR VISION & VALUES Editor’s note: A shorter version of this article first appeared in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Pete Seeger’s death at age 94 is a cultural catharsis for the American left. The New York Times accorded his passing the kind of space normally reserved for the death of a president. Such was [...]

The progressive income tax turns 100

The progressive income tax turns 100

PAUL G. KENGOR, CENTER FOR VISION & VALUES Maybe it’s a measure of progressives’ refusal to look back, to always move “forward.” Otherwise, they should be celebrating right now. In fact, President Obama and fellow modern progressives/liberals should have been ecstatic all this year, rejoicing over the centenary of something so [...]

Tax cuts and deficits: Fact vs. fiction

Paul Kengor DR. PAUL G. KENGOR, CENTER FOR VISION & VALUES In my previous column, I underscored the 1920s lessons that President Obama and fellow “progressives” need to learn. These include the value of tax cuts — lessons that the president and his allies will refuse. They want big, expanded government, not big tax cuts and [...]

Bad sports: Virtue & Vice at the Ballpark

PAUL G. KENGOR, CENTER FOR VISION & VALUES If there be (no virtue among us), we are in a wretched situation. — James Madison This isn't a year for complaints about the Pirates. So, forgive me while I complain not about the Pirates but a certain element of Pirates fans. This “element” is not unique to Pirates fans; it's [...]

Kengor: The End of the Reagan Era?

Kengor: The End of the Reagan Era?

PAUL G. KENGOR, CENTER FOR VISION & VALUES With Barack Obama’s second inauguration, liberals are touting an altogether new epoch: the end of the Reagan era. Unfortunately, I believe they are largely correct. We are witnessing a period of left-wing ascendance, marked by gay marriage, forced taxpayer funding of abortion, an exploding [...]
