Guest Allen Guelzo, American historian and Senior Research Scholar in the Council of the Humanities and Director of the Initiative on Politics and Statesmanship in the James Madison Program at Princeton University, joins Kim to analyze The American Mind.  The Declaration of Independence declares all men are equal to pursue life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  Natural rights are equivalent to the physical laws Newton brought forth, a dramatic shift from the past.  “The New Order in the Ages” sets aside the irrationalities of the hierarchy which gave/gives false comfort.  The “hierarchy” actually places us back into the Middle Ages and negates our liberty, the essence of life itself.  Contempt for merchants is found dating back to Plato, and it is in the 1800’s that trade loses its dishonor.  “The Bureaucratic Deal.”  Fredrick Douglas lectures on the “self-made man.”  Be confident in liberty knowing “hierarchy” is irrational.
