Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

Good colleges

Hillsdale College Larry P. Arnn, last featured here on this website, dissed both Ashland and Oglethorpe in an otherwise excellent appearance on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show this evening. Arnn offered an eloquent account of the Hillsdale education, indeed of liberal education altogether, at one point citing this line from Bishop Berkeley:

"Whatever the world thinks, he who hath not much meditated upon God, the human mind, and the Summon Bonum, may possibly make a thriving earthworm, but will certainly make a sorry patriot and a sorry statesman."

Good stuff, but somehow Peter has to get him to plug our institutions when he’s on national radio.

If Larry plugged Ashland, football’s not the only thing he’d be losing to us! I heard the segment too and had the same reaction--even tried to call in. But I’m for anything that gets parents (and students) to think more seriously about their choices in colleges. There is more to the decision than "What kind of job will my kid get when he graduates?" and "What kind of food do you have in the cafeteria?"
