PREVIEW: Patrick Henry worries about the future under the Constitution if men forget their virtues
Product Description – We Americans spend most of our days as the “political animals” Aristotle said we were and we do this at the expense of conversation and life that is lived and not thought about, complained about or dreaded. In the writings of 18th & 19th century men including the Founding Fathers we find a common current running through their rich rivers: a firm eye always cast on the almighty; a sense of humility brought on by the awe The One commanded in their order. We can almost feel their dread for the future they have set in motion, that events will turn for the worse and make men more worse in the eyes The Statesman.
Patrick Henry is thought of today as a loud yet eloquent promoter of what today’s libertarians call “liberty” as though that ideal of freedom from oppressive States is in concert with today’s lust for no State. In one of Henry’s final acts of devotion to his countrymen he wrote a letter to Archibald Blair laying out his fears for the young union’s future and what he thought would be its key to longevity and happiness on the one hand or its ignorance leading to despotism on the other. – Mike Church
