"The constitutions of most of our States assert that all power is inherent in the people; that … it is their right and duty to be at all times armed; … "
Thomas Jefferson
letter to Justice John Cartwright, June 5, 1824. ME 16:45.

"Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence … from the hour the Pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable … the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference — they deserve a place of honor with all that's good."

George Washington
First President of the United States

"I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them."

What college freshmen should know

This is inspired by a post of Muir's about what he wants the kids to learn, but I wanted to make it specific to college students.  Because I'm brainstorming for a possible freshman-seminar class, and I'm interested in topics that are important to making educated citizens or at least will be stimulating -- each topic to take a week or two at most.  What do you wish you or yours had learned in college that wasn't covered in regular gen-ed or major? or just a fun topic you think would be of…See More
