H623: James Madison on the Founding of the United States in Rainstorm Spring 2021 (May. 15 - 16, 2021)
With the assistance of audience members reading appropriate dramatic quotations from Patrick Henry, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, Dolly Madison, etc., he will lead investigations into events from the House of Burgesses, the Constitutional Convention, the “Dinner Party,” etc., that marked the coming of age of the United States. More than a mere recitation of dates and facts, this will be an exploration the underlying reasons that prompted them to act as they did. Many of the issues they confronted then continue to be relevant today. • Should we be one Country? • What debts should be paid? • Who gets the power of Taxation? • Should a Private Bank issue money? • Should we be agrarian? Or a center of manufacturing? • How do we limit the influence of Great Corporations on our public life? • How can we protect the Common Man from the rapaciousness of the Rich and Powerful? • How do we eliminate Slavery? • How do we make real the “Spirit of ’76?” So we can truly say that “All Men are Created Equal.”
