The One College That ISN'T a Scam With Dr. Larry Arnn

"With us right now is someone I consider to be a teacher of mine. In fact, I mention him and hillsdale college extensively in my new book out today. Now the book is called the college scam, but in the introduction of the book, I have to make the proper, let's just say nuance. I have to communicate the proper nuance where I say, quote, as I make clear in this book, not all colleges are equally corrupt or involved in this scam. If every college had a mission statement, like that of hillsdale college, for example, my criticism would be quite different. If every school had a president like hillsdale's doctor Larry arn, a leader who unapologetically contents for truth liberty and the development of good character, then my critique would be mostly about job placement and the cost of college. I mentioned hillsdale throughout this book because hillsdale has earned it and deserves it. And hillsdale has been in the news a little bit and with us is doctor Larry arn to help us explain that and some other things that are going on. Doctor Arne, welcome back to the program. How are you doing, Charlie? I'm doing well. So doctor Arne recently you criticized the education bureaucracy without any hesitation and they're lashing back. Who has the authority in the classroom? Parents or politicians. Yeah, well, that's actually an easy argument. First of all, everybody owns himself, right? You own Charlie Kirk. You're in responsible for him. Nobody can take you over and make you do what you want without your consent. Well, children are exactly the same with one difference. They haven't reached the age of majority. And so their parents stand in for them. And as did anybody's been a parent, that's a kind of a dance that goes on when kids grow up because as they grow, you have to let them go. But in the meantime, who better than the ones who are deeply devoted to them by nature, once you gave rise to them, to make judgments on their behalf.

Were All of the Founding Fathers Slave Owners?

"Charlie, my friends all say the founding fathers were slave owners. What do you have to say about that? That is what John says from Pennsylvania. So I've done a, let's say a fair amount of public commentary on this. And I have to thank the great hillsdale college for this, honestly. So look, I went down into the hillsdale online courses, Charlie for hillsdale dot com. You should all check it out. That's Charlie F war hillsdale dot com. And I did the work. A couple years ago, I'd kind of just trip over my words whenever the issue of founding fathers and slavery came up. And I probably had a response that some of you gave like, oh yeah, but we abolished it and that was then and now this was then and this is now. That's not even a proper answer. Because it's not true. The founders all knew what they were doing was wrong. They wrote openly about it. So that doesn't make them hypocrites, it makes them sinners. As the great doctor Larry arn would say. 9 out of 13 a colonies had already abolished slavery by the time the constitution was ratified. The first antislavery convention was hosted in Philadelphia in 1775 by Benjamin Franklin. Thomas Jefferson admonished king George for bringing the Senate slavery into America. In the original draft of the Declaration of Independence. The northwest ordinance, article 6, said that no slaves should be in the new territories. But Nicole Hannah Jones insists that America's true founding was not in 1776 but 1619. Now who is Nicole Hannah Jones? She is the con artist that runs The New York Times 1619 project that your kid is probably learning from right now. Let's play cut one 53. 1619 in August of 1619 is when the first group of 20 to 30 Africans were sold into the Virginia colony. And what the project is basically arguing is that that is actually a foundational to the American story as the year 1776 because nothing would be left untouched by that decision to engage in the institutional slavery. So for those of you listening on podcasts, looks as if she has Elmo on her head. I don't quite understand. That someone went crazy with a dry erase marker. She's this massive orange head of hair. That is very bright. The sunglasses watching that clip.

"hillsdale college" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show

"Deal. So I want to ask you and be respectful of your time doctor Arne, what do you believe as a scholar of the declaration of the constitution are the lessons we now need to implement today? We're in crisis. Our country is more fragile than ever. The latest poll shows that only 39% of Americans are proud of their country and its current form. I'm definitely proud to be an American, but it's hard for me to be over the top excited about where we are currently. What can we learn from the declaration and apply it to our troubles and our difficulties today? I focus more and more in these times on this. There are two statements, one from tocqueville, and one from James Madison. Tocqueville says that America is unique. He comes in 1832. He was a French aristocrat. France was the first centralized nation state. And he says there's more government in America than in France. It's just different. Because it's mostly local and voluntary. And that means in the management of hillsdale college, I don't believe in rules. I believe in goals. And you know, because goals, we all adopt them, and then everybody can figure out how to serve them. And the rules need to be very few and they need to be boilable down to be good. And just think what bureaucratic government is like, think of the rules that govern the schools, for example. Nobody can read them. Nobody does. But they can be used whenever there's a dispute, the person who gets to interpret the rule. More laws the less justice is Cicero would say, Madison said something similar to second thing is men are not angels and angels do not govern men. And that doesn't matter. It doesn't matter then if Anthony Fauci dynamic example has been there for 400 years and wrote the textbook on epidemiology, which he did. Give him power. He's just like the rest of us. And therefore, there's no solution to the human problem from empowering experts. Those two things and those are the clearest examples of the prudence of the American Revolution. And if we follow those two, we'd be on the road back. That is very well said. And they talked about things that are always true. And I just want to make a final plug. Everyone can go to Charlie for hillsdale dot com. To go on the journey of discovery of what that means. Take the online courses, take doctor arns Aristotle course, the constitution one O one course, the intro to the constitution. Some of the courses are pretty tough and it takes work. You're not just going to breeze through them, you got to take notes, you got to take the quizzes, but it's worth it. Any closing thoughts doctor on? Yeah, you're a really great student. A text me every time he gets a certificate for completed. Because I'm proud of it. And I mean that because you feel like you're making progress in your intellectual and spiritual development. So it's something that I'm proud of. Proud of you, Charlie. I've been watching you grow up for a while now. Well, thank you. And you've continued to play a big role in that. So doctor Arne have a wonderful Independence Day and thanks for your comments. Really appreciate it. Thank you. Thank you. Very much. Joining us right now is Pedro Gonzalez from chronicles magazine. We have him on Fridays to say controversial thing, so people of the weekend have something to listen to. Pedro, welcome back to the program. Charlie, thanks for having me back. They shouldn't be controversial. Actually, when you think about it, they're not at all. So I'm going to play a piece of tape here. It's cut one 48, and I want to get your response to it about the liberal world order. Cut one 48. Sustainable. What do you say to those families who say, listen, we can't afford to pay four 85 a gallon for months if not years. This is just not sustainable. What would occur from the president today was a clear articulation of the stakes. This is about the future of the liberal world order and we have to stand firm..

"We go. Charlie, what you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campus. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running The White House folks. I want to thank Charlie, he's an incredible guy, his spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job. Building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created, turning point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. The president of the best college in America, hillsdale college, doctor Larry arn, doctor Arne, welcome back to the program. Good to be with you, Charlie. And aren't you a phenomenon? Well, thank you. I appreciate that. And I have now completed half of the hillsdale online courses, and the problem is you keep on adding to them. So I have to keep on taking more to keep on saying that I'm at half. So before we get started, how are things that he'll still college? It seems as if it's just boomtown USA, the can't open enough charter schools. Can't let enough kids, how are things at hillsdale? Yeah, they're thriving. There's not a house to buy in hillsdale, Michigan. It's a land rush here now. And people are trying to get away from these cities and these bad schools and a lot of people want to be around the college. And we can't beat them off with the state applications. I've become so important that I did an event with governor Lee of Tennessee and for the first time, I've been the victim of a hidden camera. So they tried James O'Keefe tactic, I guess you could say. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, and it just happened yesterday, so I don't really know, I don't care, but Kevin Williamson of the New York national review said, you know, everything they quote him saying, he says that all the time in public. And this is the mark of a, let's say, a wise man. He's the same in private as he is in public. And so not much to hide. And I know you're opening a bunch of charter schools in Tennessee. That's probably why they're so nervous. The teacher. It attacks, you know, if you just think, if you're studying politics, as you are doing now, avidly, you'll find out that politics can be understood. It's a coherent thing, it proceeds according to principles. And every country, by the way, all through history, and it has forms that are related to those principles. And so we have the old principles and they give rise to the constitution of the United States. And I'll show today that that's even outlined in the Declaration of Independence. But we have new principles and new forms and the new form is the bureaucratic form. And that means experts make the rules in a central place. And that, that activity concern concerns consumes a large part of the gross domestic product of the country, and education is the heart of it. You know, more than half of every state's budget is in the public schools. And that means, you know, and then the federal part is not very big as federal spending goes. But it's controlling it. And so if you're a poor governor of a state where the people want the schools get better, you've got to go through them. And then they generate the teachers union and other public employee unions are the much the largest contributors to left wing causes. And so there you go. You've got now an interest, a principle that is to say, experts can rule better than ordinary people. Even their own lives, and you've got an institution you've got expertise, studies show, every time you read that, whatever follows is bound to be.

How Does Charlie Stay Motivated?

"Hi, I'm liberty. I'm from Milwaukee Wisconsin and I was wondering, how do you stay motivated? Like getting into politics and all that stuff. How do you keep yourself motivated to learn more and keep researching researching? It's a great question. Your name is literally liberty. That's awesome. That's amazing. So turning point USA celebrates ten years tomorrow. It's amazing. And our ten year anniversary. Look, you have to have drive. And you have to be, you have to be somebody that wants it really bad. And I think a lot of you do. But it's not for everybody. If you get involved in politics, you have to be willing to lose all your Friends. You have to be willing to be bullied, harassed, called awful names, probably publicly doxxed, and be unfairly attacked for a long period of time. However, the good part about getting involved in this fight is that it totally worth it, is that you're actually doing something meaningful, not just rearranging numbers at some accounting firm. That you're actually defending the greatest nation ever to exist in the history of the world. And so the best way to let's say continue the drive is to be able to answer the why. And if you can't answer the why, then you shouldn't get involved in this. And the why is the most important question, which is I want my kids to live in a free country. And when you look at things intergenerationally, all of a sudden, you stop being the most important person in the world. And you start fighting for future generations that they might also enjoy this nation. And so look, you have to know why you're getting involved in it. And you brought up a good point, which is, you know, one of the things I want to encourage everybody in this room to do is take learning very seriously. For about an hour to an hour and a half every single day, I turn my phone on airplane mode and I'm listening to a book reading a book, listening to taking hillsdale online course, by the way, which all of you could do Charlie for hillsdale dot com, all their online courses are amazing, and we partner with hillsdale college, uptake in 15 of them. There's 30 of them. And they're tough. It's work, but it's fulfilling. You'll learn everything about economics, to the constitution of declaration to American history. But that's the kind of drive that I think will make you be a differentiating factor.

Ensuring Good Education in a Post-CRT World

"Point chapter at your Belinda high school. Awesome. So last week on April 5th in a three two vote, my school board passed a resolution to ban critical race theory in my district. So my question is, what's the next steps to ensuring that we have a good education, even after that ban? That's great. So it's a two part dance. So that's great. Now you need to say, okay, let's get pro American curriculum in our schools. So what does that look like? Hillsdale college has done a lot of work in this. We're starting to do a lot at turning point USA. But we have to teach people, what is the American story? What is the problem? What is the proper way to view American history? What is America? Was it a mistake? Was it something that has kind of fell out of the sky? There's just a couple of things I'll share here that I think could really excite high school students that they're definitely not taught in school. America was summoned into existence at a time and a place that is very unusual. In fact, it's almost never happened before in human history. Most civilizations are countries stumble into existence. They're not summoned into existence. I want you to think about that. There was a decision to create America. China just kind of existed and it was kind of the Yangtze River valley civilization is kind of built into itself. In this river valley in India and so on and so forth. But America was a group of people that made a decision founding fathers. We have a set of principles. We don't like what's happening. We're going to declare independence of things that are always true. And I'm afraid that most young people are not just being taught that even we're serving taught the opposite. They're being taught to the founding fathers were racist bigoted slave owners. And they don't know their history. They don't know that the first antislavery convention in America was hosted in Philadelphia by Benjamin Franklin in 1775. They don't know that 9 out of 13 states before the constitution was ratified in 1787 had already independently abolished slavery. They didn't a lot of young people never top that Vermont was the first state to abolish slavery in 1777, inspired by the Declaration of Independence. So the next step is get your local school districts and not just teach this, but inspire young people to be excited about the country they live in. A lot of young people, I think, are

Charlie's Top 5 Reading Recommendations for You

"Someone says Charlie, do you have a reading list or all the dystopian writings that Charlie Kirk mentioned the podcast? One is Orwell's 1984, read this already as required in schools in many years ago. Yes, I recommend rereading it. Okay, yes. So there are 5 dystopian authors, all of whom were somewhat contemporaries of one another. You've heard of all of them, probably one you probably haven't heard of. They're all worth just refreshing as Christians, I encourage us to pursue whatever is true. And I think these 5 books will bless you about what really drives the tyrant. What happens when the tyrant meets technology and how technology brings out the worst impulses of our human condition. So the 5 books, of course, the first is George Orwell's 1984. The second is C. S. Lewis screwtape letters. You can read that alongside mere Christianity, which was actually first delivered as radio broadcast during the German blitz in the early 1940s, late 1930s, through the British broadcast corporation. The third is Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, which is a terrific book and addresses a lot of what we're living through when pleasure becomes the ultimate goal of a society. The fourth book is a lesser known one by Winston Churchill and is only novel. It's called savrola. I've actually not read it, but I'm familiar with it. I took a course by doctor Larry arn from hillsdale college on Churchill, and he talked about it. So that's the fourth. And then the 5th is probably the least known of all 5. And in fact, I plan to finish this book. I started it, but I got little distracted during my mini sabbatical coming up in a couple of weeks here. It's called darkness at noon by Arthur koestler, which is a terrific book. And so I've been finished it yet. So those are the 5 books Arthur koestler was a dissident. And producer Connor says I would include the fountainhead in there as neoliberal dystopian.

Dr. Victor Davis Hanson on His Book 'The Dying Citizen'

"Show with me. I feel like is a teacher of mine. Someone who I've consumed hundreds of hours of his commentary and content, doctor Victor Davis Hanson. Thank you for having me. I just we were just talking how I finished your World War II course and I was blown away by that and your citizenship course for hillsdale college. And I suppose let's just start there. Tell us about your book, the dying citizen. Well, it's a, it's not a lamentation or a eulogy for the dead citizen because I would have called it the dead citizen. It's a process of dying. And it's an erosion in the traditional prerogatives of a citizen. I think it applies to the western world in general, not just the United States in particular, but it's the suggestion that there's no sharp difference between a resident, legal or illegal and a citizen whether that means voting today or engaging in a campaign. You can be a resident. You can be here illegally and do that. Or military service. The only thing the only distinction that's left really is the ability to hold office, only citizens can do that. But if you're not a citizen, you're a resident, you can come and go as you please, apparently, see in the southern border. You can join the military. You can vote in certain places. I think soon you'll be able to hold off. So I tried to explain the history of citizenship. It was very rare, peculiar, late in history, and 8th century in Greece, fragile, today there's only two or three places that can pull off a multiracial constitutional system, Brazil, maybe India, they don't do it very well. But I was trying to remind people that unless you invest in citizenship and constantly audit it, it's the aberration in history and it will disappear. I think it is disappearing unless we stand at attention and try to do something to save

The Top 3 Things That American Christians Should Do Right Now

The Top 3 Things That American Christians Should Do Right Now

"Just real quick lightning round. You can just quit top three things, practical things we can do as Christians that are Americans right now. Boy, top three things. First thing is, I mean, take your faith very seriously. I encourage people to make that number one. So I tell people all the time, look, my life's work, what I do is focus on the second most important thing. So before I tell you what that is, let's make sure we all agree on what the most important thing is. The most important thing that we can do is to win souls for Jesus Christ. It's the most important thing that we can do. Now, so what's the second most important thing? To make sure you could do the first thing. Yeah, there you go. Come on. That's my day job. My job every day when I do three hours of radio two podcasts today, traveled 330 days last year, college campuses, churches, organizing people, 200 plus people on staff, is to make sure that number one can keep on happening. To make sure that the church will remain open, that they'll never lock us down again that they will never persecute our faith again. So I just want to make sure we all understand the priorities, right? Well, thank you. Which, and we should always be clear about that, right? That's number one. That's number one. That's number one. You can take off your coat right now. No, it's good. You can go right now. And number two, make sure you could do number one. So I just encourage all of you to read the word every single day. Get into a very serious prayer routine. And if you're struggling with your faith, ask for help. That is what the church is supposed to be. It's supposed to be the infrastructure for people that are struggling and struggling as normal because we are in a Supernatural and a spiritual struggle right now. And understand the equipment, the spiritual equipment that God gives us to be able to win the spiritual battle. I could go deeper into this. In fact, in the next service, we might want to do some of the spiritual warfare stuff, but if you are not experiencing spiritual warfare at all and it's kind of like a weird distant concept to you. I'm going to lovingly tell you, maybe you're not doing something important enough, so Satan doesn't take you seriously. There you go. Which is every person that I encounter that is fighting for the gospel in the kingdom is experiencing some form of spiritual warfare right now. And Satan Satan we know the character of Satan. He's a liar. He's a deceiver. First Peter, it says he prowls the world like a lion looking for those to devour. Okay, that's number one. We have to take our faith seriously. Number two, which is I want to challenge all of you to become really passionate learners and educators of this country. And so it's not just about doing, but it's also about pausing and learning. Learning is a substantial activity that improves your country. When you know more about your history, all of a sudden you will be convicted more to fight. When you are able to answer to a friend where they say, this country is so racist, be like, hey, let's talk about that. Where you shouldn't be caught be caught off guard about someone that says, you know, our country was founded on slavery. Like, really? 9 out of 13 of the colonies had already abolished slavery by the time of the constitution was ratified. The first antislavery convention was held in 1775 chaired by Benjamin Franklin. The first state ever to abolish slavery was Vermont in 1776, inspired by the Declaration of Independence. Thomas Jefferson wrote in the original draft of the Declaration of Independence and monitoring king George for bringing the Senate slavery to the United States. Thomas Jefferson abolished the slave trade as one of his first acts of president in 1807 that this country said time and time again in the private journals and musings of every founding father, including the three architects of the U.S. Constitution, Hamilton, Madison and Jay that is not a matter of when it's how we will abolish slavery. We should all know that stuff, yeah? And so good. And so the third thing is this, which is you take your faith seriously, you're praying, you're fasting. Jesus said the hard things come to those that pray and fast. I'm a big believer in fasting. And so if that's a distant concept to you, I challenge you to look into it and to pray about it. I know that Greg leads you guys really amazingly on that. But I'm a big, big believer in fasting, then of course learning. The third thing is yes, it's going to take action. It is. And that means I know a lot of people here in this audience right now are saying Charles, you got to give me stuff to do. I've done everything that's been asked to me. I watched Tucker Carlson every night. I bought the pillow. I did everything I was supposed to do. Thank you. That's good. Promo code Kirk, by the way, at my pillow dot com. And the Giza dream sheets are spectacular. But all kidding aside, Greg, it's gonna take faith prayer and fasting is number one bucket. The second bucket is learning. We have a partnership with hillsdale college. It's Charlie for hillsdale dot com. Take some of the online courses. No what you have been given. If we have a national Alzheimer's moment, we don't know who we are, where we've come from a memory crisis. Then what are we actually doing here? You have to know what we're anchored to and the third thing, of course, is action. Running for office and supported a good ones that do. Homeschooling kids, shepherding those parents that might be overwhelmed that are homeschooling. Action action action and pushing yourself forward. Those are the three things that I would challenge this church to continue to do.

41% of Kids Who Go to College Don't Graduate

"All, 41% of kids that go to college don't graduate. 41%. Every person in this room knows somebody or you are somebody that went to college and you dropped out. There is this belief that you must go to college to get a higher wage. It's just not true. Every one of those studies is faulty because it doesn't factor in what you're actually studying. It doesn't factor in your work ethic, your integrity, all these other different things, right? Not to mention the dropout rate as it is. But let's just look at an average college or university where the average student debt burden is anywhere between 35 to $40,000 and going up from there. So we have a generation of young people who are telling them to go borrow money. They don't have the study things that don't matter to go find jobs that don't exist. Into an increasing marketplace where they're not actually being filled with skills nor are they developing the full human being. So I would be fully on board for college. If every college like hillsdale college, where they're pursuing or they're going deep into the classics, Socrates Plato and Aristotle Aquinas and Augustine and bacon and Newton and they're really diving into the great books. It's the opposite. They're training activists. And instead, it's this community that's been created where they want you to believe there is no God. And if there is a God, it's you. It's like, wow. Okay. You're gone. Yeah, you're God. You can make the decisions you want to make. And I mean, I run a college organization, right? I have visited well over a 175 colleges, turning point USA is now on over 3000 high school and college campuses across the country, right? Grace God. And so I say this with a good amount of authority, which is college is damaging our country more than most people could ever realize. Every major bad idea that makes your head turn and you kind of think stems from a college campus. Every single one.

Charlie and Pastor David Engelhardt Discuss the Great Christmas Gift Debate

"So I do a hillsdale college partnership. Anyone can check it out Charlie for hillsdale dot com. And I said that virtue should be rewarded by parents, such as kids that take hillsdale online courses versus playing violent video games or goofing around and on TikTok all day long. And that your Christmas gifts should be distributed to children versus based on the, let's say, based on the decisions your children make, and also whether or not they're good kids versus bad kids. Got a lot of pushback on that. Some parents agreed most disagreed. They said you don't know what it's like because you're not a parent, fair enough. That's fine, but I was raised by parents that would always say, hey, if you don't behave, you're not gonna get good gifts. And it worked. David, what is the Bible say, what is your book say about this? Well, we start with this premise that life itself is not a gift. And we have a world that has been so dunked in soft socialism and a welfare state that anybody that's lacking anything is seen as some kind of great moral crisis. And the idea, you know, we're the wealthiest country in the history of the world at the wealthiest time of our country. And people have, you know, there's so many parents right now that are buying gaming computers for their kids. They're sold out all over the place. They're like a thousand bucks a pop. I mean, think about getting think about when you were a kid, Charlie, your parent, like getting you a $1000 just for the heck of it. Just getting because you need to, you need to TikTok more or whatever. We don't understand this concept of earning things. It's kind of left. Justice is all about what's owed and what's being worse, right? Exactly. Right. I owe you something. If I harmed you as a debt, that's right. Justice is all about debt. That's why in the lord's prayer Luke chapter 11 and says, you know, our father who are in heaven Halloween, you're him. Forgive us our debts as we forgive those who owe us debts. It literally uses the terminology debts because justice is about debts being owed or being not owed. When we come into the world, God doesn't give us life and say you can do whatever you want with it. He says, I have a specific set of instructions for you. I want you to be fruitful. I want you to multiply. I want you to diminish darkness. I want you to be kind. I want you to be just. I want you to be good. Those are the things. And if you're not those things, then you are in debt to God because you're wasting the life he's given

The Democrats' Discreet Plot to Kill Election Integrity Everywhere

"Are the most important issue to the left. This is why, at every single turn, if you watch very carefully and closely, there's almost an operation mockingbird type agenda. And this is on the front page of The Washington Post continually. They are a threat to our democracy. We must do everything we can to protect our democracy, our democracy is under tech. Now, of course, we are not a democracy. We are a constitutional republic with democratic means of electing our officials major difference. We've gone through that in great detail. We don't have to do that again today. But you guys can go back in the archives of the Charlie Kirk show if you're really interested to go to Charlie for hillsdale dot com. We have a lot of good videos we've partnered with hillsdale, college to explain that massive difference being a Republican democracy. It bothers me anytime people say that we're a democracy we aren't we're a republic. And one of the most important indicators of where the other side wants to go is you can see in the activism, the lawsuits and the energy of the left that elections are the most important thing. Daily wire dot com writes the Senate is tabling Joe Biden's signature Bill back better legislation until next year. Over stalled the negotiations with moderate Democrats. Therefore, Chuck Schumer is likely to push a vote on the build back better plan until next year. However, Schumer is still holding out hope for action on voting rights this year. They're hoping for an agreement on rules changes between four moderates who have been meeting. Joe Manchin, John tester, Tim kaine from Virginia, and Angus king from Maine. Now the build back better plan has been tabled, but instead, and now unknown, non defied bill that is basically a laundered version of HR one.

Why Is America Getting Mixed Up in Foreign Wars When We Have a Mess at Home?

"Angela Cote via wrote the book literally called the ruling class. He was also probably one of the wisest foreign policy experts ever. And for those of you listening that want to get a really good understanding of how we should approach American foreign policy, Angela Kota villa was one of the most prudent. One of the most fair and pro American thinkers. And challenge the CIA and the security apparatus unfortunately, he died tragically. I was supposed to spend time with him, actually, he was unable to make it because he got COVID and he died of something else. It was awful. But he had this, the reason I bring up Angela Kota villa and Michael Anton, who's with hillsdale college. That's a great actual reminder that I have to tell you about hillsdale, the wonderful hillsdale college Beacon of the north, Michael Anton, who is not, doesn't necessarily agree with everything that Angela coded via says, but is, in some ways, disciple, I don't want to speak for him, but he would say this better than I could, which is you should not get involved in foreign conflicts if you have extensive domestic problems at home. What are you doing saber rattling across the world? Trying to resolve border disputes when our when our own border is wide open, we have inflation, the country is politically divided and you have a regime that is wildly unpopular. Well, that is exactly what the security apparatus is doing. Partly to distract away from the failed regime of Biden, but also to try and feed the fire of the military industrial complex because look, if you're the military industrial complex, you're looking at Pfizer AstraZeneca Johnson & Johnson, Lockheed Martin Northrop Grumman Boeing, they say, hey, come on, cut us in for some of this. We got no wars going on right now. Front page of the New York Times, on Ukrainian front, warily awaiting the worst. After 8 years of war, grim anticipation of Russian invasion. So now we are being fed a nonstop line that we should care about the Russian Ukrainian border

"It becomes small. And then you'd have to have some checks so that I'm just automatically ratified them all without thinking about. And this is, this is a fundamental change in American government. If you, if you look at each of the three articles, the first three are 7 in the original constitution. They all begin this power, shall be invested in, right? So legislative judicial and executive. Only in the first one, only in the legislative power does it say all the legislative power shall be invested in. And that's very important, because the doctrine, there's a chapter in John Locke's second treatise on government about this. On the delegation of the legislative power, he says, and that's a great evil. Dangerous, right? And so the greatest single overturning of the constitution is the creation of this administrative state. And my opinion is, we got to bring it back under control. Well, I totally agree. And for people that want to learn more about it, they can go to Charlie for hillsdale dot com and doctor arn I want to next time talk to you about Churchill and Lincoln, but unfortunately, we're out of time for this conversation. And I just want to reiterate our gratitude to hillsdale college for what they're doing for our nation. Just in primus alone, I think makes America more free place, not to mention their online courses, which, as I mentioned, have really blessed me. And we have lots of people taking the online courses, doctor arnon, and they're finding great fulfillment and then. So thank you. I really enjoyed this conversation and it's together we're going to keep fighting for liberty. Let's save the world Charlie. We can do it. I like that. I like the sound of that.

And you'll say, well, I don't really care about how you think. Can you talk about that? Because that's an interesting way to put it. Maybe I miss categorizing it.

By the way, you also will not be encouraged to respect my opinion. You will be encouraged to respect the forming of opinion into truth. And that's a lifelong effort, but first, by the way, you have to learn a bunch of stuff.

"Episode of the Charlie Kirk show with us today as someone who has taught me more than anyone else in the last year and a half. I have listened to hundreds of hours of his lectures and read many of his books and honored to have him on the show today. The president of hillsdale college, where we have a great partnership together, Charlie for hillsdale dot com, doctor Arne, honored to have you with us today. It's great to be with you. I've become a great admirer of Charlie Kirk. Thank you. And you've taught me quite a lot. And I tell everyone that your Aristotle course really touched me and strengthened my beliefs in a variety of ways. So doctor an I want to start with this open question and we see this in the news lately of what is education. What is the purpose of education? I see a lot of people kind of fumble in that recently. Even people on the center right that would call themselves conservatives. People that say, well, we got to teach people how to think, not what to think or we gotta listen to kids and give them what they want. What is the purpose of education? That's not how to think about what to think. If you just think about it for a minute, it's silly, right? Do we want to raise them up to think that the moon is made out of green cheese? So the point is, if you step back from our mechanistic engineering society, which touches across the political spectrum, by the way, education is not like making anything. It's like helping something to grow. But the growth is in the thing, right? You can plan an acorn all day long and you'll never get a pine tree out of it, right? No matter how you cultivate it. So education is growth. Now, you know, the Latin word education means to lead forth educator and that raises the question which way is fourth. And that means, you know, the Bible says, train up a child and the way he should go. We should have the same thing is the way he wants to go in all cases, but of course people do want to grow to be fully what they are. So education is just helping them learn and you have to step back again in another way, too, because human beings love to know. The first line of aerosols metaphysics. The human being stretches himself out to know. We want to know, and that means in any class, it's just highly likely that if you've got something interesting to talk about, the kids will be interested. And what we think is all the focus, it's across government and it's rooted in education. We think it's something we do to people. And we don't. So some parents are saying that they are dissatisfied. They are angry at what's happening at the local school district. For good reason. In response, we see the American federation of teachers and Randy white gardens say that parents have no role in their kids education. In the ideal doctor Arne, what is the parent's role in education? Well, they're partners in it. And the ideal situation, I mean, first of all, parents are in the same position as teachers, by the way. You know, I'm I have four children and now I have grandchild that I have another one on the way. The grand grandchild is the most important being on earth. And my wife and I are going to help her parents raise her. But that doesn't mean we're going to make anything out of her. We're going to help her be what by nature she is born to be. And she is going to do it. And, you know, she's 11 months old. You can already see her working on that. So parents are like teachers. Now, what should happen is the parents join with the teachers. They should be involved. And, you know, at any partnership, you know, the word college, by the way, means partnership. And parents are in the partnership. And you have to agree the terms of the partnership. But if you do, then you can cooperate. You're all trying to get the same thing done. I noticed about homeschools, by the way that very encouraging thing. Homeschooling itself is very good and it's growing very fast now because this point you make that people are sick of the schools. A great exciting thing is co ops. Parents get together and pool their resources and their children, and they teach them. Take turns, hire somebody sometimes, right? In other words, they're building a school. And a school is a natural thing. You schools are as old as Plato's academy or older. So yeah, they should be in the schools. And see, here's another point. The curriculum, K through 12, almost everything that's taught. Are things that anybody can know if they have common sense and take trouble together knowledge and think about it, right? And that means that expertise is not the thing in school. In fact, it almost any level, you know, you don't have to be a rocket scientist unless you're teaching rocket science. And so schools can be. Must be should be transparent. And that means parents can understand. Of course they can. And this whole deal, you quoted the guy from the teachers union. That we're just the experts, and you know nothing. Think what that would mean if it was true. It means that you're not competent to raise your own child. Yes. And then what work is there for you in the world that what can you do? Everything. Here's a great episode from the life of Winston Churchill..

"Hey everybody happy Saturday, what a week it has been with Virginia and New Jersey all across the country and this Saturday we want to bring you a partnership, actually it's a perfect word to use because the word college actually comes from the word partnership with our college that we love here on the Charlie Kirk. So hillsdale college, the Beacon of the north, the place where real learning gets done, we have the president of hillsdale college. Doctor Larry arn the last college you could call hillsdale college where they talk about Christianity faith, theology, liberty truth, America. I've learned so much from doctor Larry arn over the last year and a half and a last year and a half, especially and before we get into that conversation, I want to tell you more about our partnership with hillsdale college. I have completed 8 online courses. It is my goal to finish every single online course that they offer. It takes work and things in life that are meaningful, they take work takes commitment. I ask doctor arn about this in our conversation and I could definitely agree with this in my own personal life, which is we want to point upwards. Want to go towards things that matter. I know in my own personal life when I push myself to keep climbing to eternal things to beautiful things and good things, I find that fulfilling, and I wouldn't have told you that 5 or 6 years ago, not that I wouldn't have thought it mattered, but as you start to realize, the more you learn, the less you know when you thought you knew it all. So we've partnered with hillsdale college, Charlie for hillsdale dot com for you to be able to take the very same courses that I think will actually help you make sense of some of the things we talk about here on this program. We are going a million miles a minute sometimes and drop the names like John Locke and Friedrich Nietzsche. Thomas Hobbes, Thomas Aquinas Aristotle Socrates Plato, who were these guys. Were they important? From Shakespeare to Winston Churchill, hillsdale's courses on all that stuff. And they're interactive, they're easy to learn easy to understand, takes work, it takes time, but I'm right now working through their American civil rights course. It's incredible. I never knew there was so much depth to the history of civil rights in America. And as I told many of you, I have finished the western heritage course all about Rome, ancient Greece, the medieval period, all the way up to the glorious revolution. Again, an 85% on that test actually. So maybe you're at a stage of life where you feel as if there is something missing. And maybe you come to this podcast to learn something. Well, let's learn together. That's what we're doing at hillsdale college. Their mission is to try and.

Is God Dead? Making Sense of Nietzsche with Dr. Khalil Habib

"Back by popular demand doctor khalil habib from the beacon of the north the last college. How college is meant to be hillsdale. College you guys can find all things hillsdale. Charlie for hillsdale dot com doctor. Great to see you again. Likewise charlie how you doing. I'm doing great. So i asked you this question right before we got started which actually is a perfect segue into the type of philosophy that nietzsche helped advance or birth. Which is who knows what the truth actually is. How do you pronounce nietzsche either some nietzsche but my teachers always referred to him as So well that's i guess it's the truth isn't it's all real. That's that's the point. That's what i was getting to is. What difference does it make right. It's whoever has more power determines how to pronounce his hard to understand german name. So let's start with it. Is god dead professor. And where did that question come from. Well it took to be a paradox. Because as anyone knows of god by any reasonable definition is eternal so the idea that god is dead is just a paradoxical statement in mutuals intending to get us to reflect on what what he means by that and what he means by that is. He's dead in the hearts and minds of europeans. And what that essentially suggests is that the belief in god existence of god rests on the opinions of the faithful and in the same context in which you see that phrase uttered Major says that god has been replaced by the newspaper. And if you wanna think about what that means when you contrast god who is eternal who gives us a transcendent ideal port which we can aim and be dutiful towards with the newspaper which is essentially ephemeral. What essentially saying is that. The modern world has shifted away from a longing for eternity in greatness in some capacity to here now get immediacy of one's sensations in to the just newspapers to the ephemeral and he thinks that that diminishes man's longing for greatness ultimately impoverishes civil

"Hour in which doctor learn prison of Hillsdale college and I are talking about the constitution how it came into being and how it was debated in ratified in this segment I'd like to actually talk about the structure doctor aren't again you're the author of the founders key we can talk about the debate that swirled around after it was produced in the windows store opened September seventeen eighty seven but just to dwell for a bet on the structure of the document and its articles one two and three and everything else and how did they come to this division of powers and this federalist system the reasons behind the main features of the constitution are very deep and their explain most beautifully in the end and most profoundly I think in the federalist papers of many American book I think it's the greatest book in American political writing and the thing is it you know the key elements of the American constitution is are explained in the the in the con in the federalist papers well it is a representative form and that means that we elect the people who serve in the government they all of their appointments directly or indirectly to the people and that medicine right is essential in the sixty third for see writes that and then in addition these several federal she writes that but in addition in the sixty third he says it is the first the representative system and that means that we will be sovereign the people but we will only act through representatives we won't form any of the branches of government and that by the way is the first check and balance in the constitution we have the power but we use it through others the others who use it depends entirely upon us for their appointments right so that that keeps the first and worst vice a politics down which is that the people who have power use it in their own interest they can't they work for us yeah so so representation the second one the representation makes possible the second one and that is separation of powers because it's a sovereign people is busy delegating their authority to representatives they can delegated to different ones with different functions and it emerges that in the constitution if you look at one two three and four of the articles the fourth is really about the states mostly they delegated to state into a national government and then secondarily when they delegate to the constitution's the national government they delegated to three different branches that correspond to the three main things that government does which is decide what to do do it and judge cases that arise from the doing of it so the legislative executive and judicial branches and it's fundamental those powers be exercised by different people even in in the case of our constitution in in the thing that I think was brilliant and they thought was a main feature selected at different times for different lengths of times by different constituencies so that nothing could sweep through and holy disorder under the force of any particular demagoguing moment that which was under way but we we lapse that in two thousand and eight one of the rare times that we allow the wind to blow so strong that it blew it's often to one party government without the benefit of checks and balances rare in modern times more common in throughout the course of American history in fact this long stretch of divided government being the rule is the longest stretch we've had in our history but it's also true though that you know parties which they didn't imagine except with this taste and then formed immediately after the car again operate is so much more on each other through some parties a rose to help coordinate the branches and help them work together and also to a symbol opinion for the great electoral contest they will I will return to parties parties have just had their way in the United States when I'm collecting this Donald Trump as president elect by originally aired this thanksgiving thanksgiving day after special and parties have a great deal to.

The president has told me if if if the constitution just itself, just the constitution were properly taught and understood by just half the people in this country. We wouldn't have nearly the problems that we have we wouldn't have so many people who have lost respect and admiration for the country wouldn't have nearly the people who think this country, racist and bigoted and unjust. But when you don't teach the constitution, and you don't teach the way the country was set up then you allow a much of poison, and this is what happened the hillsdale wants to counter it. So they're making what they teach the students available to people all over the country free of charge online. Now, given all the focus on congress in the last several weeks hillsdale's re introducing the online, video course. Congress out was founded what's purpose was how it's supposed to work and it's free on demand. The topics and conversations are robust. You'll learn what congress is responsible for how they're supposed to make laws, and you will learn very quickly how they farmed out so much rather than take on heavy political decisions.

And then we'll get into some of these other matters. President at the White House today. Cut one go every nation has not only the right, but the absolute duty to protect its borders and its citizens a nation without borders is a nation not at all. Without borders. We have the reign of chaos crime cartels and believe it or not coyotes. I will not surrender this nation to the whims of criminal organizations who prey on the vulnerable who hurt women and children and human misery and suffering. Human trafficking and massive drug inflow must also be stopped. It's at a tremendous level. What we're doing and the incredible job being done by border security ice border patrol local police and the military the military has been incredible. And we're stopping. Now, notice Schumer and Pelosi didn't say a word about any of this. Because they are the architects of the non border. They're the architects of the Schumer Pelosi open border. That's what they're the architects, and the president is trying to reverse that cut to go at this moment. There is a debate over funding border security and the wall. Also called. So that I give them a little bit of an out steel slaps. We don't use the word wall necessarily, but it has to be something special to do the job steel slats. I've made my position very clear any measure that funds. The government must include border security has to not political purposes but for for country for the safety of our community.
