Why study the Constitution and the US Success Formula?

To answer this question I call upon the great Statesman Thomas Jefferson who had this to say concerning the Constitution:

"We owe every other sacrifice to ourselves, to our federal brethren, AND TO THE WORLD AT LARGE, to pursue with temper and perseverance the great experiment which shall prove that man is capable of living in society, governing itself by laws self-imposed, and securing to its members the enjoyment of life, liberty, property, and peace; and further show, that even when the government of its choice shall manifest a tendency to degeneracy, we are not at once to despair, but that the will and the watchfulness of its sounder parts will reform its aberrations, recall it to original and legitimate principles and restrain it within the rightful limits of self government.”

How can we expect to accomplish this with out at least a basic understanding of the principles of self-government? The Thomas Jefferson Center classes inspired by the late Dr. W. Cleon Skousen's Miracle of America Course will walk you through these principles. Listen to Dr. Skousen tell the story of Eldridge Cleaver, a former Black Panther, as an illustration of the impact of both ignoring these principles and later embracing them. You'll also hear Eldridge Cleaver express regret that he was not taught these principles earlier in life.
