My Fellow Americans!

 

 

The Society of Statesmen teaches American statecraft. A 501(c)3, non-partisan, education organization, we provide instruction in oratory, public policy, history and philosophy.* Those leaders we most revere are Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson and Lincoln, most especially toward the end of his presidency. Yet we are also mindful of the student’s limited time and the parents’ tight budget. Thus our crafting and offering of compact, inexpensive and labor-saving instruction.

……………………………………………………………………..

The Society of Statesmen takes a far longer view of history and makes a far greater use of original sources, than commonly found elsewhere. Because leadership also requires good men and women speaking well, we teach Classical Rhetoric or oratory instruction of the type Lincoln and the Founding Fathers learnt, not today’s typical Communications Course.

We offer the major competing views, Christian versus secular, on all or mostly all issues discussed. It even results in a multiplicity of views, at times, for instance, multiple strands of Christian thought and of Hegelian/Marxist thought when examining political
philosophy of about the last two hundred years.

Programs are offered for those in high school and college, and for adults.

Scholarships are available for those in school and for adults.

 

…. The painting seen above, that of Peter Rothermil, depicts Patrick Henry in the Virginia House of Burgesses in 1765.

 

* … The Society of Statesmen is an independent organization; and although it does collaborate with other organizations or individuals, from time to time, it does not necessarily endorse the positions, nor the practices, of these other organizations or individuals.
