Dr. Guy Story Brown
In a recent column, David Brooks ponders "what this election is about: Is the 20th-century model [of government] obsolete, or does it just need rebalancing? Is Obama oblivious to this historical moment or are Republicans overly radical, risky and impractical?" As the political climate heats up in the Fall, the Routh Street Irregulars under the guidance of Dr. Guy Story Brown will continue charting the course that the U.S. has taken to our point in history--and its likely direction in the future. Texts for discussion will range from Book I of Plato's Republic to Presidential "Farewell Addresses" such as Washington's in 1796 and Eisenhower's in 1961, as well as other key documents.
