It contains 31 outlines that you can use either as a personal study syllabus or as a guide to enjoyable monthly discussions with family members, friends, and neighbors. Whether you use these materials on an individual basis or in a group setting, they will enable you to gain an in-depth understanding of--

This course of study examines our two classic textbooks on America's freedom formula. The first of these is The 5000 Year Leap, a review of the political, economic, and social principles that every civilization must follow in order to become-or remain-a free people. The second text, The Making of America, unfolds the surprising background and the original meaning of our federal Constitution and shows how the founders used these concepts to produce the strongest, most prosperous nation on earth. If you already have The 5000 Year Leap, and/or The Making of America you can purchase the study course separately on this page.
It's essential that all freedom-loving Americans gain a working knowledge of the principles of liberty taught by our founding fathers. Learning these principles will put "fire in your bones," because they provide positive answers to nearly every problem now confronting our nation. Not only will this knowledge enable us to use our vote and our influence more effectively today; it will also prepare us to help rebuild America as we're called upon in the future.
We hope you will joining us in this exciting exploration of the original American "success formula."
