Read full description of the books The U.S. Constitution and the 196 Indispensable Principles of Freedom:I read this book as part of a reading program conducted by the author. His intent is to help people understand the principles of freedom not only through this book, but also by reading great classics that contain principles of freedom such as the Old Testament and the writings by Montesquieu, Blackstone, Locke, Hume, Plutarch, Tocqueville and others.
DeMille's point is that we cannot leave the defense and maintenance of freedom up to politicians and "experts." We cannot trust the politicians, experts and others who seek elite status in society to maintain freedom for all. If the principles of freedom are not widely understood by a majority of the members of a free society, freedom will be lost. Growing up and living in a country that has freedom is not the same thing as understanding the principles of freedom and actively maintaining them. The highest level of government is not the federal government, it is "We the People."
Read information about the authorOliver DeMille is the founder and former president of George Wythe University, a founding partner of The Center for Social Leadership, and the author of A Thomas Jefferson Education: Teaching a Generation of Leaders for the 21st Century.
As a university student, Oliver went on a search for a truly great education — experiencing private and public universities, technical and religious schools, corporate and international educational institutions, prestigious colleges and worthless diploma mills; he literally sampled the best and the worst that modern education has to offer, and virtually everything in between.
As a result, he found a small Bible school where he worked closely with mentors and studied the Bible and the great classics in many fields. Although Coral Ridge Baptist University was not regionally accredited, he was so excited by the quality of his studies that he left a large, well-respected university to focus full time on his classical education. He earned the B.A. in Biblical Studies (May 1992), M.A. in Christian Political Science (December 1992), and Ph.D. in Religious Education (May 1994) at Coral Ridge Baptist University.
He has written and spoken extensively about the traditional education system versus his intense mentored-classical experience with Coral Ridge and his mentor–Dr. W. Cleon Skousen. After his Coral Ridge studies, he returned to Brigham Young University and completed the B.A. in International Relations with a minor in Aerospace Studies, graduating Magna cum Laude (1994). He then devoted his time to refining the educational design and curriculum of the liberal arts school he founded, George Wythe College (now University).
Oliver is a popular author, keynote speaker, and business consultant. Presently, he devotes a majority of his time to writing. He and his wife Rachel are raising their 8 children in southern Utah.
