Government Course (Special)




The standard government course generally dives right into the various areas of life in which we allegedly need government involvement. This course is different.

This course begins not with government itself but with the rights of the people, with several lessons on the natural-rights tradition in Western civilization. And unlike the standard government course, which gives government the benefit of the doubt, this course considers whether the people themselves might not be able to provide the various services for which we are told we need government.

This course is aimed at ninth graders, but I assure adults that you will not feel talked down to at all if you choose to take this course yourself. The vast bulk of the lessons also include recommended reading assignments, and a suggested writing assignment is included with each week’s material. Treat yourself, or your student, to this smorgasbord of knowledge today!
