1. How well do you understand our Constitution?
The Constitution Minute is a series of brief, informative one-minute radio messages designed to improve your understanding of the meaning and history of the U.S. Constitution. Each Minute features Dr. Larry Arnn or another Hillsdale faculty member—the same ones who teach our students on campus—explaining one key constitutional principle.
List of Minutes:
1. How did America’s Founders understand the words, “All men are created equal”?
2. What is the difference between natural rights and entitlements?
3. Did America's Founders intend to create a separation between church and state?
4. Why does the Constitution limit government?
5. President Larry Arnn discusses bureaucratic despotism.
6. The continuing relevance of the Constitution.
7. What is the Relationship of the Three Branches of Government Under the Constitution?
8. Why is Federalism crucial to free government?
9. President Larry Arnn discusses the presidential oath of office.
10. President Larry Arnn discusses Congress granting itself legal exemptions.
11. What is the Legislative Vesting Clause of the Constitution?
12. President Larry Arnn explains the principle of equality in the Declaration of Independence.
13. What did the Founders mean by "general welfare"?
President Trump kicked off his 2020 reelection bid in August 2019 and his speech gave us insight into the issues we can expect to see going forward. Without a doubt, for the first time in American history, socialism will be front and center as never before.
We’ve all seen photos of the RESULTS of socialism - inflation, poverty, no food, no electricity, long lines, no gasoline, property confiscation, etc. – and have used those examples of why socialism fails. But what, exactly, is it that CAUSES socialism to fail? Mismanagement, as Bernie Sanders claims, and that it can be done better? He uses Sweden and other countries as examples. (Watch the videos about Socialism on the RWOP website under Education, for more information.)
As an avid researcher, I’m always looking for explanations about information on the “why” something happens, especially when it comes to our founding. Were our founders right about “the nature of man” or, as the socialists claim, through improvements to technology and medicine, society will do a better job of governing? They claim that the founders were right, for the time they lived in, but their principles don’t work now and that government needs to evolve in order to meet the needs of a new, complex modern society.
