On September 27 the Forum will welcome back Arthur Thompson, a popular speaker on American history, for his presentation on that instrument for change: War.
Mr. Thompson explains: From Europe people engaged with Americans in a plan to create a new form of government out of the conflict known today as the Civil War. This conflict was born out of a number of issues, only one of which was slavery. These issues were used to start the war with the primary intent of altering our system so that the government would rule rather than the people.
As a result of the war, our system was altered from its original form of a federation of individual states to a national government, at the same time adopting most of the planks of the Communist Manifesto for socializing the country.
We need to understand these changes in order to return to what our founders gave us, a Republic. After all, if you don’t know where you came from, how do you find your way home?
Bio: Arthur Thompson is the CEO of The John Birch Society and author of the recently published history of the U.S. titled To the Victor Go the Myths and Monuments.
