What Good Looks Like: the Institute for Humane Studies
March 6, 2020
Hosted by Judge Jim Gray (Ret.)
We are straying from our roots and, in the process, have become more polarized. Instead of discussing issues and being solutions-oriented, we have in many ways become tribal, supporting a person only "because he/she is one of us." To counteract that situation we have IHS, or the Institute for Humane Studies and its president Ms. Emily Chamlee-Wright as this week's guest. IHS takes us back to our "classic liberal" roots. Thus IHS endorses individual liberty and responsibility, the Rule of Law, more limited government, economic freedom, free speech, and open inquiry. Join us as we delve into the reasons why these "liberal ideals" have made our country great and will continue to do so! See how IHS is successfully planting these seeds into the minds of potential teachers and professors, and then supporting them as they continue that work. And for more information, or to offer your support to IHS, please visit www.TheIHS.org. "Classic Liberalism is not radical, it's American!
