RE: The Two Sides of the Coin - The Act Settlement of 1701
Many, many more people would benefit greatly from understanding the content of this post. In history are the seeds from which our present fruits, and what will pass to our posterity.
Thank you for the compliment. I designed the outline for a Youtube channel. I want to show that Conservatism and Progressivism came from the same place. Both ideologies use conflict to gain power and both ideologies end up creating highly centralized societies.
This observation that the Act of Settlement of 1701 was non only about politics but was about education explains one of the most puzzling aspects of the modern world.
German philosophers of the modern era mysteriously began creating reactionary ideologies that inevitably lead to centralization.
The mystery makes sense the moment one realizes that the Hanoverian Kings of England were German and that they were funding the Germany University System. The university system was simply doing what it was hired to to.
The problem I face with the articles if figuring out where to begin. The best place to begin is with a discussion of the ancient world. The problem with this outline is that I would have to produce about 20 essays with a biased view of history before getting to the juicy pieces of modern history.
I chose to start with Machiavelli as I thought it might be a quick way to introduce the conflicts that were raging in Europe during the Enlightenment.
I think the next essays will be interesting. I will look at the creation of the public education system, the French Revolution, the dawn of Conservatism and the roots of Capitalism.
I probably should include an essay on the American Revolution.
