America’s Forgotten Fight for Universal Progress
Lecturer: Anton Chaitkin (author of Who We Are: America’s Fight for Universal Progress)

In this presentation, renowned historian Anton Chaitkin introduces a new analysis to American history by recognizing the top down factor of oligarchical vs republican paradigms that have situated humanity in two diametrically opposing paradigms throughout all human history. This fruitful exercise allowed Anton to redefine the higher motives and purpose of the American revolution and the larger battle to establish a science of political economy on this earth. The lecture itself was delivered to showcase the first volume of Anton’s new two volume series “Who We Are- America’s Fight For Universal Progress” with this first part taking us through the life and work of Benjamin Franklin during the decades prior to the revolution all the way to Franklin’s grandson Alexander Dallas Bache- a leading scientist who continued his grandfather’s mission a century later.

Teddy Roosevelt’s Last Mad Crusade
Lecturer: Martin Sieff (author of Cycles of Change)

In this lecture, renowned journalist and historian Martin Sieff zeroes in on a “pregnant moment” in world history which saw the 1901 murder of a great president (William McKinley) and the rise of Teddy Roosevelt into high office. This was a moment of change that saw a young republic pulled in two opposing directions as on the one hand, a defender of sovereignty, liberty and international cooperation in opposition to systems of empire and on the other hand. a participant in empire and colonialism under a perverse understanding of “manifest destiny”. One paradigm was defended by William McKinley, the other was advanced by McKinley’s delusion vice president- Theodore Roosevelt.

Hamiltonian Economics and the Persistence of American Slavery
Lecturer: Nancy Spannaus (author of Hamilton vs Wall Street)

In this Rising Tide Foundation lecture, Nancy Spannaus (author of Hamilton vs Wall Street and President of American System Now) introduces the scientific revolution in political economy that Hamilton created in the wake of the revolution that has largely been erased from history books. This was a revolution involving a new paradigm of economic thinking never before seen in human history and yet which had vital precedents to the greatest traditions of Colbertist Dirigisme as well as earlier Cameralist schools that emerged out of the Golden Renaissance. In his four groundbreaking reports to Congress in 1790-91, Hamilton argued that if the young republic would endure beyond its first decades, then certain sovereign rights of national banking, productive credit and full spectrum agro-industrial economic growth would be necessary to give the nation both economic as well as political sovereignty in the face of the globally extended British Empire. In her class, Nancy debunks the popular oft-repeated slander that Hamilton’s ideals, life and heart were nothing more than veiled hypocrisy hiding just another pro-slavery aristocrat passing himself off as a revolutionary. Using rigorous first hand sources, Nancy demonstrates that this accusation is a false mythology cooked up by forces who have much to loose should the USA rediscover even at this late stage, its proud humanist traditions and constitutional system of economic thinking that would bring it into alignment with Natural Law and today’s multipolar alliance now shaping the New Silk Road.

The Need for A Hamiltonian Policy to Develop African Nations
Lecturer: Lawrence Freeman (Editor-in-Chief of Africa and the World)

In this Rising Tide Foundation presentation, Lawrence Freeman (President of Africa and the World and leading Africa expert), breaks from this cynical mode of thinking by providing a comprehensive overview of Africa from pre-colonial times to the present- and always with a strong view to the future. In conducting this exercise, Lawrence uses his five plus decades of experience as an activist, government advisor, teacher and economist to help his audience gain a greater appreciation of the beautiful African traditions which have consciously been scrubbed out of historic memory. Furthermore, Lawrence explains how imperialism has continued to persist through the past 75 tumultuous post-WWII years, even though the world has been led to believe that African nations are somehow “free and independent”. Even though courageous visionaries such as Kwame Nkrumah, Patrice Lumumba and Sheik Ante Diop strove to bring Africa into the modern age with the support of great republican presidents like Franklin Roosevelt and John F Kennedy, the systems of empire that stained human history with slavery, war and colonialism successfully de-railed their efforts and re-absorbed the continent back under the controls of exploitation and economic colonialism which must be corrected if humanity will regain the moral fitness to survive into the 21st century and beyond. Disabused of the myth that Africa’s problems are somehow “self-induced”, Lawrence then brings his audience to a higher understanding of the real potential for Africa. This is done by painting a beautiful picture of the possibilities for a new African renaissance which China’s Belt and Road Initiative has created involving a holistic approach to value, long term planning, self-interest, win-win cooperation and respect for sovereignty than anything emanating from the west since the death of President John F. Kennedy in 1963. Lawrence’s website is: http://lawrencefreemanafricaandthewor…

The Genius of Paul Lawrence Dunbar
Lecturer: Madeleine Therrien

Paul Laurence Dunbar, who became the acknowledged “poet laureate of the African American people,” lived throughout a political tumultuous time, when the old South fought a battle to restore the old “Slavocracy” in alliance with Wall Street and abolish Abraham Lincoln’s Reconstruction policies. Paul Laurence Dunbar was loved for his dialect poems as well as his “proper English” poems and his legacy left hundreds of schools all over the United States named after him. He used humour and metaphor to combat “Jim Crow” laws and to uplift the people emerging from the darkness of slavery.
