Today the integrity and unity of the Declaration of Independenceand the Constitution are under attack by the Progressive political movement.And yet, writes Larry P. Arnn:

“The words of the Declaration of Independence ring acrossthe ages. The arrangements of the Constitution have a way of organizing our actionsso as to produce certain desirable results, and they have done this morereliably than any governing instrument in the history of man. Connect thesearrangements to the beauty of the Declaration and one has something inspiringand commanding.”

From Chapter 2, TheFounders’ Key

Dr. Arnn, president of Hillsdale College, reveals thisintegral unity of the Declaration and the Constitution. Together, they form thepillars upon which the liberties and rights of the American people stand.United, they have guided history’s first self-governing nation, forming ourgovernment under certain universal and eternal principles. Unfortunately, theeffort to redefine government to reflect “the changing and growing socialorder” has gone very far toward success. Politicians such as Franklin Rooseveltfound ways to condemn and discard the Constitution and to redefine theDeclaration to justify government without limit. As a result, both documentshave been weakened, their influence diminished, and their meaningobscured—paving the way for the modern administrative state, unaccountable tothe will of the people.

The Founders’ Key isa powerful call to rediscover the connection between these two mightydocuments, and thereby restore our political faith and revive our free institutions.
