Hillsdale's American Heritage Class Pt 3
I'm admittedly not one for videos, but here's Part Tres of Hillsdale College's American Heritage course, "Enlightenment and Natural Rights," hosted by Terrence Moore [PhD, University of Edinburgh '99].
IMO, where "natural rights" met the Enlightenment is Ground Zero for human history as we know it today: The time—the Founding, the place—America. The classical world met the onrush of the modern, the religious met the secular, the Old World met the New—
Planet Earth would never be the same.
