The Making of America (Recorded 1-day Seminar)
We recognize that many people would like to attend a live NCCS seminar, but are unable to because we simply cannot go everywhere. We recently recorded a seminar and have made it available for anyone to view as they have time. We have also included our Seminar Guide as a free download and strongly encourage the use of this guide as you watch the following video clips.
In the great formative period of the United States over two centuries ago, the American Founding Fathers became
acutely aware that all mankind is seeking the same three things: freedom, prosperity, and peace.
They set out to find a system of government that would provide these things for the people of America. Unfortunately,
in their own day no such government existed. They therefore determined to invent one. This is their story.
As we shall see, the search for the “ancient principles” of sound government was a prolonged and painful one. What
was worse, when they finally discovered what these principles were, it was difficult to persuade many people to accept
them. Getting people to assume the responsibilities of freedom and self-government was one of the most discouraging
parts of their political adventure.
The structuring of the American success formula for freedom, prosperity, and peace was a hard-won achievement.
Nevertheless, it did finally produce in America the first free people in modern times.
That is why this course is important. The Founders laid the foundation for us. We must preserve it. To do so, we must
know their success formula well. This formula is set forth in great detail in our core books entitled The 5000 Year Leap and The Making of America. Our 1-day seminar is designed to provide a clear overview of the great principles of America's freedom and the stirring history of their discovery and adoption. We invite you to begin this exciting journey.
