Free Download: Reweaving the Fabric of Freedom

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” -Margaret Mead

We’ve been working hard to produce our latest white paper, “Reweaving the Fabric of Freedom: Finding Your Path in a Comprehensive Plan to Revitalize America.”

Here’s what you’ll learn:

The Problem

The American republic is floundering. Freedom is eroding. We have forgotten and neglected our heritage. True citizenship has been lost as we clamor for rights without understanding or fulfilling corresponding duties.

The family is disintegrating. Cultural literacy and unity are at all time lows. The classical education that produced the Founders has been largely replaced by “conveyor-belt” education that teaches the masses what to think, and technical education that teaches a select few when to think.

As a result, 1) few know how to think, 2) our culture of ownership and innovation has been replaced by dependent employeeship and entitlement, and 3) we no longer have men and women who understand the constitutional forms and cultural underpinnings that perpetuate freedom.

The Remedy: Three Tiers of Leadership

We need three types of individuals to be actively engaged in fulfilling vital roles in our society:

  1. “Producer-Citizens”
  2. “Social Leaders”
  3. “Statesmen”

Producer-Citizens are liberally educated individuals who understand the connection between rights and duties and who live private and public virtue.

Social Leaders are innovators, entrepreneurs, and intrapreneurs dedicated to improving the health of society by following their unique mission.

Statesmen are those with the depth and breadth of education to understand governmental and societal forms, and who have the social capital to implement those forms.

The Action Plan

For freedom to win over aristocracy, dependence, entitlement, and degeneracy, we need the following:

  • An Army of Producer-Citizens: These are trained through youth conferences, undergraduate programs, seminars, information products, and self-education through classics.
  • A Battalion of Social Leaders: These are trained through graduate programs, seminars, personalized mentoring, and consulting.
  • A Select Group of Statesmen: These are trained through graduate and other programs patterned after the George Wythe/Thomas Jefferson model of intense, intimate mentoring.

Ten Leadership Characteristics to Revitalize America

The following characteristics must be ingrained into those filling the three roles above:

  1. Initiative
  2. Tenacity
  3. Integrity
  4. Allegiance
  5. Commitment to Mission
  6. Passion
  7. Impact
  8. Breadth
  9. Depth
  10. Nuance

Leadership Education—a specific, comprehensive philosophy and methodology—is needed to train these leaders and teach these characteristics. In other words, we must be in the business of building character along with bestowing knowledge.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts on the document.
