Larry P. Arnn President of Hillsdale College:
Sign up for free online course to study the Constitution of the United States. Forward: For the U.S. Constitution books:
The framers of the US Constitution combined the best political ideas of the past with innovation in what the Federalists called “an improved science of politics.” Federalism, separation of powers, and checks and balances. Doing so, they created a form of government which had, in the words of James Madison, “no model on the face of the earth.” Because men are not angels government is necessary; because no man stands to another as God to man or as man to beast, government must be based on consent.
The moral foundations of the Creator is written in the Declaration of independence and its principles of equal rights under the Constitution. government was to be limited to protect these rights. In recent decades the way our government operates has departed from the Constitution. It has become less limited and our liberties are less secure. At the same time true civic idealism in America----Education in the Constitution has largely died out. We at Hillsdale College see it as one of our highest duties to reverse this.
Here at Hillsdale we require every student to complete a one semester course on the principles and meaning of the Constitution. The significance of the course is matched by its rigor. Hillsdale’s motto is: “PURSUING TRUTH AND DEFENDING LIBERTY” since 1844. In that spirit we are pleased to reprint the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution in a little booklet.
Please receive it with our compliments. Larry P. Arnn, Pres. Hillsdale College, 33 East College Street, Hillsdale, Michigan 49242
