‪Lincoln Assassination Eyewitness (Feb 9, 1956)‬‏ - YouTube - 2 views

  •  
    1950s game show appearance of witness to Lincoln Assassination.  Not many people would believe that one person can connect the mid 19th century and the age of television. This can also show students that there are different qualities to primary sources - some primary sources are more valuable than others. This is a primary source because he was a witness, but he is remembering something from 100 years ago. Is he still a primary source?

To Thomas Jefferson from James Madison, 24 October 1787 - 1 views

  • The mutability of the laws of the States is found to be a serious evil. The injustice of them has been so frequent and so flagrant as to alarm the most stedfast friends of Republicanism. I am persuaded I do not err in saying that the evils issuing from these sources21 contributed more to that uneasiness which produced the Convention, and prepared the public mind for a general reform, than those which accrued to our national character and interest from the inadequacy of the Confederation to its immediate objects.
  • Those who contend for a simple Democracy, or a pure republic, actuated by the sense of the majority, and operating within narrow limits, assume or suppose a case which is altogether fictitious.
  • Even in its coolest state, it has been much oftener a motive to oppression than a restraint from it.

    This is James Madison telling Thomas Jefferson, and history teachers in the 21st century what went on in the Constitutional Convention. Notice his statement that it was the fear of popularly elected state legislatures that had more to do with the calling of a Constitutional Convention than the failures of the Articles of Confederation. US History Instructional materials teach the opposite

The Most Pernicious Misconception About Democracy - The New New - Medium - 2 views

  •  
    "State Tectonics, which wraps up Older's critically acclaimed Centenal Cycle series, may be science fiction, but its speculations are eerily relevant. Reading it, one can't help but think of current refugee crises, the rise of reactionary nationalism, the inevitability of accelerating data breaches, and the terrifying brinkmanship so evident in Washington. But unlike the bleak scenarios played out in Black Mirror, Older's world is nuanced, not dystopic, assuring us that even in the midst of disaster, it's still possible to make a difference with a combination of luck, hard work, and compassion."
