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.

Cultural Marxism: The Doom of Language

Cultural Marxism: The Doom of Language

By Robert F. Beaudine “Every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.” Throughout history, ideas have been used for good or for evil. They have also led to the greatest evil – war. This is reflective in a [...]

OWS: The Revolutionaries, Their Plan and Liberty’s Last Stand

By Robert F Beaudine The “occupying” protests here in America have been characterized as spontaneous and leaderless. Protesters, politicians, and the mass media have compared it to the so-called spontaneous uprisings of the Arab Spring. In reality, neither has been spontaneous nor leaderless. The Arab Spring was planned years ago and then [...]

The Heresy of Constantine

The Heresy of Constantine

Constantine By Robert F. Beaudine Most of the great thinkers of the past agreed on two aspects of truth: Truth was difficult to ascertain and rarely dwelt in the crowds. Humorist Josh Billings observed that as scarce as truth is, the supply always exceeds the demand. There are different paths to truth, through logic, through the senses, [...]

The Art of Political Rhetoric

The Art of Political Rhetoric

By Robert F. Beaudine The ancient Roman rhetoricians developed rules for their oratory. They began with “the exordium,” an emotional or ethical appeal to put the audience in a receptive mood. The “narratio” followed, a narrative of the events leading to the situation to be discussed and an explanation of their manner of [...]

Beaudine: On Saul Bellow

Beaudine: On Saul Bellow

Daily Dabble in the Classics, Robert F. Beaudine: On Saul Bellow Fiction that entertains and provokes thought can be a wonderful experience. Nobel Prize winner Saul Bellow provides that experience. In 1973, (not quite yet prime time classics), his “Humboldt’s Gift” adds humor to the equation. (I curse Bellow for this. When I finished [...]

Beaudine: On Pascal

Beaudine: On Pascal

Daily Dabble in the Classics, Robert F. Beaudine: On Blaise Pascal Pascal would applaud our home-schoolers. After all, he was home-schooled by his father. From his “Pensees”: How does it happen that this man, so distressed at the death of his wife and his only son, or who has some great lawsuit which annoys him, is not at this moment [...]

Beaudine on Albert Schweitzer

Beaudine on Albert Schweitzer

Daily Dabble in the Classics, Robert F. Beaudine, On Albert Schweitzer I am a fan of few things popular, even popular sayings. “Those who refuse to learn history are condemned to repeat it,” I find trite. History is far more important than that. Without a broad intensive study of history, much of the present day will remain a mystery, [...]

Beaudine on Plato

Beaudine on Plato

Daily Dabble in the Classics, Robert F. Beaudine, Plato Plato has been revered by the progressives, especially his “The Republic,” and he has been decried by libertarians, but he also offers insights. In addition, he should be required reading for keeping alive the heroic life of Socrates. Socrates might not have been a Christian, or [...]

The Myth of Global Warming

The Myth of Global Warming

A primer on the myth of global warming and the international forces behind it. By Robert F. Beaudine In 1908, an amateur archaeologist discovered old bones in a gravel pit in England.  In 1912, the scientific community trumpeted this evidence, called Piltdown man, as the missing link between man and apes, proving that Darwin’s theory [...]

AFRICOM: The Doom of Journalism

AFRICOM: The Doom of Journalism

By Robert F. Beaudine Our founders understood that a free press was vital for the nation to preserve its other freedoms. In the First Amendment of The Bill of Rights, they endowed the press with its freedom, a responsibility that could be used for both good and evil. Our forebears knew when used for good, our public press would balance and [...]
