Bastiat Society of Nashville presents Thomas L. Krannawitter lecturing on A Citizens's Guide to the Constitution


Thu Sep 7th 6:00pm - 8:00pm (CDT); Richland Country Club, 1 Club Dr, Nashville, TN 37215

AIER’s Bastiat Society program in Nashville will host an event with Thomas L. Krannawitter, President of Speakeasy Ideas.

There’s little left of our constitutional republic. If we are to save it and recover the virtues, habits, and lifestyles of self-governing, free citizens, we must create a constitutional culture in America. For that to happen, we are in need of a citizen’s guide to the Constitution. Not a guide for lawyers, judges, bureaucrats, or experts, but a guide for citizens who vote and make their voices heard.

The Constitution is ours, after all. We The People must understand it if we are to hold our government officials accountable to it. And we must hold government officials accountable to the Constitution, if we are to save what remains of our constitutional republic. Should we fail, self-government will fade away as we enter a terrible new age of submission and compliance under an utterly unconstitutional administrative state.

More about the speaker:

Dr. Thomas L. Krannawitter is President of Speakeasy Ideas where he specializes in distilling the most important ideas—starting with the idea of human liberty—helping others to understand and use those ideas to improve their own lives.

He holds a Ph.D. from the School of Politics & Economics at the Claremont Graduate University. He has taught at Claremont McKenna College, Hillsdale College, Ashland University, and George Mason University, among other places. He was Director of Academic Programs and Vice President at The Claremont Institute in California. Dr. Krannawitter has received numerous research fellowships throughout his career from institutions such as the Heritage Foundation and the Intercollegiate Studies Institute.

He’s one of the principal instructors for the Leadership Program of the Rockies, based in Colorado, and the Charter Oak Leadership Program in Connecticut. His 2008 book, Vindicating Lincoln, was featured by The History Book Club and endorsed by the United States Lincoln Bicentennial Commission. His most recent book, Save the Swamp: A Career Guidebook for Budding Bureaucrats, is a comical satire.

Rod's Comment: These monthly meetings of the Bastiat Society are excellent. The speakers are always engaging, informative, and thought provoking and are experts in their field. Many are published authors and highly credentialed scholars. Also, the people attending are intelligent, thoughtful and interesting people and the socializing is enjoyable. Also, the food is excellent! It is much better than the normal cheese and veggie tray one often encounters at fundraiser or political events and there is a full open bar. I highly recommend the Bastiat Society events.
