The Prospect of Freedom: Can America Sustain its Experiment in Self-Government?

~ A Russell Kirk Lecture ~

"In the end the ultimate threat to the American republic will be Americans. The problem is not wolves at the door but termites in the floor." This warning, found in Dr. Guinness’s latest book, A Free People’s Suicide: Sustainable Freedom and the American Future, points to the question facing all Americans: Can we sustain our experiment in self-government?

Dr. Os Guinness, social critic and public policy commentator, has written or edited 30 books on a wide range of themes. He also founded the Trinity Forum in 1991. Join us as we hear from Dr. Guinness about how it is not enough for freedom to be won, it must also be preserved and passed on from one generation to the next. 

Copies of A Free People’s Suicide: Sustainable Freedom and the American Future will be available for purchase and to be signed by the author.
