"The new graduate school Stephen Amy van Andel graduate school of government and Hillsdale college's Kirby center that dean of the graduate school math Spalding joins me it's got to stop once they've got a few students there now but it really gets going in January and dean Spaulding because people are seeing the ready I I always was on the radio I'm always disappointed by hosts who do not spell out things if you head over to the PC dot Hillsdale dot EDU site DC dot hotel dot EDU and you look for I'm the school of government about and they'll say admissions and you'll find that you need an official transcript any three letters of application you got to complete the application form there's a fifty dollar application fee a writing sample is required a statement of interest as required a resume SCV if appropriate and if the initial phase of application is successful the applicant will likely will be contacted for an interview now they probably heard free or almost free that means a subsidy is huge and their debt out not to be an impediment to it but they may not hear rigorous and I want people to hear rigorous one of regular at me. it's going to be hard in a rigorous in spirit so what we're combining two years we're bringing hills dales academic standards to DC. this is gonna be a series program you're a re. one fundamental documents original documents bring to the straight to the source this is not about reading secondary ideas and that kind of thing we're gonna go back and read Aristotle this row in the city is in makes clear. I can only. order to be there wanted to American politics to work and study a lot about pounding up the Lincoln lot of Lincoln. and then and then stay crap which means we'll get into some practical things we're not going north at all Hey you know you'll be the first to know what we need our politics right now and what we need generally and this is something startled when bactericidal recognized. is we need to understand immediate things particular settings circumstances you got a note of if you're in politics and people tend to pick those things up but the real challenge here is how do you design your actions how you decide how you deliberate about those circumstances in light of something else and that means we have to know sorry about our own regime and about principles and that's got to be serious and regrets you can't do it by going to a conference or a weekend or a lecture you've got to spend some serious time working through serious thinkers. and in particular in art we we legalese I used to spend some time considers time thinking through how Churchill or a link and or a Washington went about accomplishing their great he successfully but they did so in light of those permanent and fundamental ideas that guided them that that's what we mean by state Jeff this is not a a fine let's quote the founders up on mount Rushmore this is a serious inquiry into the nature of prudent decision making in light of first principles it is not a trade school like loss of identity to Moscow for twenty five years but because it's a trade school even com law after I can only spend three classes on how did we get here and what we believe before I go to Marbury versus Madison in a brief history of nearly everything right when justice Gorsuch came the Nixon library last week had a long conversation with maps following a excuse me that the dean of Chapman university law school and and he had said Matt's falling not match falling it's it's can't think of his name right now yeah I know it's Johnny Smith is no longer the dean that pilot and Matt parla set them in the justice and he spent a lot of his ninety minutes talking about separation of powers Matt Spaulding but that's that that was a great introduction of white so matter but thirty seconds you can't do separation of powers in ninety minutes. the fundamental understanding you can't that's why I go back to your earlier point about most graduate school in Washington DC they are actually trade school what traits will teach you is the me yet now they oftentimes get certain parts right perfectly fine here's how congressman committee system called the works. but you got to do it in light of a deeper thing and separation of powers come from. six and human nature."
