Stone Mountain, Georgia: Confederate Heritage and the Fracturing of American Identity

October 17, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Evergreen Marriott Hotel, 4021 Lakeview Dr
Stone Mountain, GA 30083 United States

$150

  TOPIC: The Southern novelist, Walker Percy, argued that the very form of the mind of an historic people is found in its most basic symbols. Less than a year after the unconstitutional and brutal invasion of the South by Lincoln's forces, the Confederacy knew by heritage and history that it must fly the St. Andrews Cross, the diagonal cross which through the centuries and in many nations has commanded "resistance to tyrants." President Eisenhower kept a portrait of Robert…

Gamifying the Classroom: How the U.S. Department of Education Is Using Video Games and Common Core to Transform K-16 Education

November 17, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The Solarium, 321 W. Hill Street

The U.S. Department of Education is pushing the takeover of education to the next level by imposing Common Core on college and promoting video games in the classroom, K-16. (Yes, the senior year of college is considered grade 16 now.) Video game designers, who work at their own companies as well as in academic departments (and often at both) and receive grants from the federal government and technology-aligned non-profits like the Gates Foundation, argue that games motivate students and “cultivate…

The PC Attack on the South

February 26, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - February 27, 2016 @ 9:00 pm
Crowne Plaza Hotel, 4831 Tanger Outlet Blvd
North Charleston, SC 29418 United States
+ Google Map
$150

TOPIC: The politically correct assault on Confederate symbols now includes nearly all things Southern. The statue of John C. Calhoun in Charleston was vandalized. Southern founding fathers are rejected because they were slave holders. Universities are removing or renaming buildings, monuments and symbols with links to the pre‑1960s South. Not understanding the world‑inverting character of ideological thinking, many well meaning people seek to appease these militant demands. But they do so at their peril. The Southern vision of society was…

“The Southern Tradition and the Renewal of America” St. Christopher Conference Center Seabrook Island, South Carolina June 12-17, 2016 Disordered by the fumes of political correctness, our cultural and political elites are falling over themselves to rid the land of Confederate symbols and monuments. They forget that the South was largely the guiding moral and political force that created the America of 1776-1861. That America was overwhelmed by the brute force of an aggressive sectional Northern nationalism. The new Lincolnian…

Nullification: A 21st Century Remedy

The general government in Washington D.C. is out of control.  All three branches of government are complicit in the destruction of real federalism, what was once considered the cornerstone of the American polity.  "States' Rights," in fact, were a recognized fact of the original Constitution, both North and South.  As virtually every proponent of the Constitution insisted during the ratification process, the States were to be the pillars of the American federal republic with virtually unlimited power over the domestic concerns of their people.  The general government had expressly delegated powers for the general purposes of the Union, namely commerce and defense.

ON BEING SOUTHERN IN AN AGE OF RADICALISM St Christopher Conference Center, July 9-14, 2017 Seabrook Island, South Carolina The South has a depth of meaning not available to other regions of the country. It is older than the United States, and for four years it was a nation fighting for its independence. It has known tragedy, greatness, and humility. Having changed, it has yet retained a substantial character. To be Southern does not require being born in the South,…

Charleston, SC: Attacking Confederate Monuments and Its Meaning for America

Before “political correctness,” Americans respected Confederate memorials. They knew the War was a conflict that went back to the founding fathers and that the secessionist descendants of Jefferson were as much good Americans as the Union descendants of Lincoln. Today, however, our elites are kindling fires to consume not only Confederate symbols but much else besides. A modest plaque with only the words: “In Memory of George Washington” was removed from Christ Church in Alexandria along with an identically styled…

Southern Identity Through Music St Christopher Conference Center, July 15-20, 2018 Seabrook Island, South Carolina Music has been described as "the soul of the world embedded in sound." Southern music exemplifies the traditions and culture of its people "embedded in sound." It sprang from the mud, the rivers, the forests, the fields, and the mountains. From the land and place, to religion, folk songs, poverty and defeat, a "new South" and and old culture, the South has a story to…

TOPIC: The secession of 15 states from the Soviet Union in 1991 was the greatest peaceful revolution in modern history. Secession and decentralist movements are firmly entrenched throughout Europe. Discourse of secession and state interposition to federal tyranny is now mainstream in America on the left and right. Are we witnessing a paradigm shift away from runaway centralization? Join us for a thoughtful discussion of secession and the prospects for decentralization in the United States. FORMAT AND COST: Lectures and…

Seventeenth Annual Summer School: The New South

TOPIC The War, Reconstruction, and the new status of the South as a conquered colony of the industrial North created something historians call the “New South.” The term suggests a radical break with the past. Ralph Waldo Emerson and other Northern elites hoped to transform the South through Yankee immigration, technology, ideas, and money into a Southern version of New England. Southerners struggled with great changes in labor and capital, race relations, manners, religion, education, and with a new vision…
