Monticello College Lyceum Lecture Series
A series of Thursday night lectures for San Juan County residents and full time enrolled students held on the Monticello College campus. Each lecture begins at 7:00pm and ends at 8:30pm.
American Citizenship and Its Decline
For most of American history, the people, understood as citizens, have ruled through elected representatives under the terms of the Constitution. Today, the constitutional rule of citizens is threatened by a new form of government, unaccountable to the people, in which power is held by a ruling class that seeks to transform our society. This lecture series, based on Victor Davis Hanson’s book The Dying Citizen, examines the origins and history of citizenship in the West and the grave challenges to American citizenship today.
