Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

Podcast on George Washington

It is Washington's birthday tomorrow so I talked with Christopher Burkett about George Washington in this podcast. Burkett knows the Founding and the Father as well as anyone I know (that's what he teaches at Ashland) and it was a very good conversation.

Washington always both reminds us of our limitations and our virtues, and any conversation about Washington teaches us something about the virtues necessary for self-government. You Americans do well to remind yourselves of this great man, this peak of human excellence, and you have reason to be proud of your country, both for its Constitution and its Father.
