Today, November 30th, is Winston Churchill's birthday. We remember the great man for his defense of the free world against the forces of evil led by Adolph Hitler. The world today is no less dangerous and we are just as ill-prepared to meet the challenges presented by the on-going threat of Communist China, Vladimir Putin's Russia, and the new and deadly designs of mainstream Islam.
Here are two essays, one by my predecessor Hillsdale College president Larry Arnn that appeared in our Claremont Review of Books and another by our Distinguished Fellow Harry V. Jaffa:
- Thoughts and Adventures, by Larry P. Arnn
- Can There Be Another Winston Churchill?, by Harry V. Jaffa
Both point to why Churchill is worth studying. I recommend them to you.
