Reassessing the Presidency
PGA Weblog ^

Posted on 11/17/2012 8:26:09 AM PST by ProgressingAmerica

Now that Hillsdale's lecture series Constitution 201 has concluded, I would like to just take a short moment to point out another series that has some segments similar to what Hillsdale presented.

I initially came across this by doing research into the work of one of Hillsdale's professors, Richard M. Gamble. In The Mises series "Reassessing the Presidency", Gamble lays out very similar concepts about Woodrow Wilson as you saw in Constitution 201, or as you will find in my archives.

So far I have only listened to the sections regarding Wilson and Theodore Roosevelt. Both of these sections appear to be very well researched and informative into the danger that progressivism presents our country.

The Mises audio lectures have also been uploaded to Youtube, if you so prefer, and for ease of navigation I have linked to them below. I have these listed in the same order as on the Mises page.

If anybody wants on/off the revolutionary progressivism ping list, send me a message

Progressives do not want to discuss their own history. I want to discuss their history.

Some of the articles may be interesting and informative, but is a cult that doesn't allow much room for opposing arguments.

They usually end up saying that someone like John Tyler or Martin Van Buren was the greatest president.

Those 19th century guys may (or may not) have been adequate to the demands of their day, but I have a hard time thinking that they could have coped successfully with the Second World War or the Cold War.

It appears that Google/YouTube is up to their old Obama protection tricks.
