At the end of every course that I teach for the Mises Academy I ask students what they would like to do next, and quite a few always say Lincoln.

So, beginning this Thursday evening, May 9, I will begin my five-week online course on “Lincoln: Founding Father of the American Leviathan State.  The course consists of five lectures of 45-60 minutes, followed by 30-45 minutes of Q&A.  Everything is online of course, and the lectures and discussions are archived, so that you don’t have to be physically there from  5:30 to 7:00 for the next five Thursdays.  Here are the nightly topics:

WEEK 1:  THE TRUTH ABOUT LINCOLN, RACE, AND SLAVERY

WEEK 2:  WHY LINCOLN WAS ELECTED: THE FOUNDING FATHER OF CRONY CAPITALISM

WEEK 3:  WAGING WAR ON THE CONSTITUTION: THE LINCOLN DICTATORSHIP

WEEK 4:  FOUNDING FATHER OF THE AMERICAN WARFARE STATE

WEEK 5:  THE LINCOLN CURSE: DICTATORSHIP, MILITARISM, AND ECONOMIC FASCISM
