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
