Event Details

The Golden View Classical Academy Foundation is sponsoring this Golden View Salon with Dr. Thomas Krannawitter, Founder of Speakeasy Ideas.

From the ashes of the Civil War, convinced that the United States suffered from a terrible mis-founding, young academicians looked to re-found American government upon new principles, new ideas, and an entirely new view of human nature. This was the project that came to be known as progressivism. It required nothing less than a rejection of the idea of constitutional government. And it explains our politics today.

Discussion Questions:

  • Who were the first progressives?
  • What is the progressive view of human nature?
  • What is the progressive critique of popularly elected government?
  • What did progressives mean by “bureaucracy?”
  • What is a progressive “leader?”

Reading Materials:      

  1. Woodrow Wilson, Congressional Government (1885)
  2. Woodrow Wilson, “The Political Scientist” (1880)
  3. Woodrow Wilson, The New Freedom (1913)
  4. Woodrow Wilson, “Leaders of Men” (1890)
  5. Charles Merriam, A History of American Political Theories (1903)
  6. Carl Becker, The Declaration of Independence: A Study in the History of Ideas (1922)
  7. Richard Hofstadter, The American Political Tradition and the Men Who Made It (1948)

This event is free and open to the public with a $20 suggested, tax-deductible donation
