Are You or Do You Know a Madison, Jefferson, Ghandi or Mother Teresa?
James Madison could see that the Articles of Confederation were not working. If something wasn’t done quickly, the new government would fail, the 13 states would desintigrate, hard won liberty would be lost, and England would step in and rule America once more. Madison applied to Jefferson and others for ideas and resources on government. Jefferson sent Madison a crate of his own books from France where he was serving as an American ambassador. He and others also gave Madison reading suggestions. Madison studied all he could. He read Montisque, Locke, Blackstone, etc. He also read Cicero, and other great ancient scholars and leaders. The Bible was another source of inspiration. As he read these, he was able to think and understand on deep levels. He was able to see what worked and didn’t work in the past. What areas of human nature needed to kept in check. What it would take to keep liberty alive. He then gathered people he knew to be key indivituals from across the 13 states who also had the education, influence and backgroutnd to bring to pass a government that would perpetuate liberty. These men gathered together in the Constitutional Convention and conceived an inspired document that would give people a country where they could live their lives and pursue their dreams in Liberty.
According to Dr. Oliver DeMille, in order for freedom to win in the United States today, we need 700 men and women like Cincinnatus, Madison, Jefferson, Ghandi and Mother Teresa. Individuals who have the faith, education, understanding of human nature, and the ability to think and analyze on deep levels. They also need to have the skills necessary to organize, bring key players together, and lead and rally when needed. They must have the education, ability and personality to make freedom possible on a national level. Let us all pray that as the time comes when the people cry we need a Cincinnatus, that 700 step forward. That God has prepared these individuals just as he prepared Washington, Madison and Jefferson etc. is my hope and prayer. Is it your mission to be one of these? A great place to start is George Wythe University. They are a university dedicated to creating leaders and statesmen of the calibur of Jefferson and Madison.

What is YOUR MISSION?
Now is the time for you to embark on a journey of finding out what your mission is. No matter what your mission is, one key comes up over and over again. You must educate yourself so that you can fulfill your mission. Almost all the signers of the Declaration of Independence were well educated, some self taught and others through schools that gave quality education. It is interesting to note, that almost all of the signers were born in the First or Second turning of that time period. They were the ones who had the education and mission to be the leadership during the Fourth Turning including the Revolutionary War and Constitutional Convention. Is it your job to provide leadership in this Fourth Turning? If so, start educating yourself. Start a branch of the STAR Forum with your friends and family. Discuss great books and ideas together in your forum. Exchange ideas on liberty, mini-factories, education, honor and the classics. Prepare yourself to fulfill your mission. JOIN US.
