Constitution 101

This class covers the philosophy and some history surrounding the writing and ratifying of the US constitution. This is a really well done class that will give you better mechanical understanding of the intent of the constitution as written as well as how various eras in history react to the constitution and why.

The Constitution established a limited government, but a government with sufficient powers to protect Americans’ God-given rights to “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” This course examines the design and purpose of the Constitution, the challenges it faced during the Civil War, how it has been undermined for over a century by progressivism and post-1960s liberalism, and how limited government under the Constitution might be revived.
