Writing the Constitution: Miracle in Philadelphia [Video]

Spring 1787. The American revolution had been won, but no one seemed to know how to govern the new nation. There was no chief executive, no agreement on taxes, or even how they should be collected. The country was teetering on the edge of anarchy. Something clearly had to be done, and quickly. What happened next is nothing short of a miracle. Historian Jay Cost tells the incredible story.#constitution #prageru #history SUBSCRIBE 👉 https://www.prageru.com/join📲 Take PragerU videos with you everywhere you go. Download our free mobile app!

But there was no peace.Because there was essentially no government. There were states. But they weren’t united. Not even close. There was no mechanism to collect taxes.No way to provide for the national defense. The nation was living on the edge of anarchy. George Washington understood this. So did James Madison and Alexander Hamilton. So did many others. Something clearly had to be done. And fast. The word went out across the land. A new Constitutional Convention was called for. When Washington announced he would be there, the meeting gained instant credibility. Fifty-five men from twelve states arrived in Philadelphia in 1787 to draft the framework of a national government. There was no guarantee that they would succeed. And even if they did, there was no guarantee that the American people would accept their plan. Failure was a real possibility. And everybody knew it.The different interests of the states were just too pronounced—over trade, taxes, and slavery to name just three of a dozen points of conflict.Yet, they all knew that they had to succeed. Or there would be no country—just a loose collection of individual territories sharing the same continent, easy prey for the European powers.Not only was America’s future on the line, so was the glorious principle of self-government as stated in the Declaration of Independence, the reason for the Revolutionary War.So, these fifty-five men locked themselves in a room for four months, working six days a week, through the middle of a hot Philadelphia summer to get it done. They all agreed they would say nothing to the press about their deliberations.They even closed the window shutters so that no one could look in, making a very hot room even hotter.As the temperature rose outside, tempers rose inside. Still, they persevered.On September 17 they finished, and the country and the world learned what they had produce—the Constitution of the United States, 4,500 words of collaborative genius.How did they do it? There are many answers, many happy accidents, perhaps even divine intervention. But here are three reasons that stand out.First, they knew the stakes.The Articles of Confederation under which the country had been operating since the Revolution were clearly inadequate. This was dramatically demonstrated in 1786 when a group of New England farmers took up arms in a tax dispute. Known as Shays’ Rebellion, the rebels came close to overturning the state government of Massachusetts. No one wanted anarchy. But anarchy was staring the country in the face.Second, these were very capable men. They were both learned and pragmatic. Many, like James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, Gouverneur Morris, and James Wilson were steeped in the great works from classical antiquity—from Thucydides to Aristotle, from Livy to Cicero—and, of course, they knew their Bible.They were also men of the Enlightenment and saw politics as a kind of science. They studied what had worked in the past and what had failed.For the full script, visit: https://www.prageru.com/video/writing-the-constitution-miracle-in-philadelphia

The Student Loan Forgiveness Scam [Video]

It’s hard to imagine how we could screw up higher education any more than we already have, but we’re about to—if we make sweeping student loan forgiveness a reality. How? To answer this question, we must start by asking another one: cui bono?#studentloandebt #studentloans #debt SUBSCRIBE 👉 https://www.prageru.com/join📲 Take PragerU videos with you everywhere you go. Download our free mobile app! Download for Apple iOS ➡ https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/prage…Download for Android ➡ https://play.google.com/store/apps/de…Script:It’s hard to imagine how we could screw up higher education any more than we already have, but we’re about to—if we make student loan forgiveness a reality.There’s a Latin phrase that helps explain why. The phrase is “cui bono”—who benefits.In the case of student loan forgiveness, it’s first and foremost the colleges and universities who can charge outrageous tuition largely paid for by student loans; second, politicians who make cheap promises of debt forgiveness to win votes; and third, students from upper middle-class families who would get taxpayers to pay off their student debt.Who doesn’t benefit? Everyone else. That includes those who didn’t go to college and a new class of “suckers”—people who went to college and paid off their student loans. Student loan forgiveness is a reverse Robin Hood—it takes from the poor and gives to the rich.The most obvious argument against forgiving student debt is that no one forced anybody to borrow money for college. Why, then, should others be forced to pay it off? Before you think I’m going to go all tough love on you, let me say that I have a lot of sympathy for young people who have dug themselves into the student debt hole. I am one of them.For decades, our society has made the claim that you need a college degree to get ahead in life, and that the smart bet was to take out any amount of loans to ensure a bright future.And if you need help with the tuition? Uncle Sam—the US government—stands at the ready with his generous student loan programs. Fill out a few forms, and presto, there’s a check in your mailbox. You’re off to college. But here’s the dirty secret: for every dollar of student loan money the government makes available, university tuition goes up by 60 cents! Colleges and universities don’t see college loans as a problem; they see a gravy train. Most college administrators may be cowards ready to cave before every politically correct fad, but they’re not dumb. If the government is going to loan you money to go to college, they can raise tuition virtually at will. You can afford it; just borrow more.And what do the universities do with all that tuition money? Build more buildings. Hire more administrators. Hey, somebody has to pay for all those Diversity, Equity and Inclusion officers, right?Cui Bono. Meanwhile, you stagger out of college with a degree and a boat load of debt to pay off, to get the same job and salary that a decade ago didn’t require a bachelor’s. What great way to start your adult life!If you fit that profile, you’re very likely to favor student loan forgiveness. Who can blame you? With a simple stroke of a pen, some or all your debt goes away like it was never there. And, the least you can do, in return, is vote for the politicians who made it possible. At least that’s how the politicians see it. Cui Bono. But who’s going to pay for your good fortune? The taxpayers, course.The most modest debt relief proposal out there now—$10,000 per borrower—would cost $300 billion. To wipe it all out? $1.8 trillion. And a lot of those taxpayers will be working class people who didn’t go to college—in many cases because they didn’t want to take on all the debt. That’s why despite easy student loan access from the government, people in the lower and middle classes make up a smaller percentage of college students than they did 50 years ago.The reality is that loan forgiveness would overwhelmingly benefit the already well-off.It’s projected that for every dollar of debt cancellation that would go to the lower middle class and impoverished student loan holders, seven times that would go to the top 20% of earners—the lawyers, accountants, and doctors who borrowed heavily for their degrees.This group also includes the people who staff government bureaucracies, corporate HR departments, and school administrations—the people chiefly responsible for the woke mini-revolutions upending institution after institution. For this managerial class, student loan forgiveness would be great.But is it fair?Cui Bono.For the full script, visit: https://www.prageru.com/video/the-student-loan-forgiveness-scam
