09.23.2020: Rising Generation Class

Rising Generation students are committed to mastering and teaching the political philosophy of Natural Law and the Founding Fathers’ principles of successful government. We study the viewpoints of the Founders and encourage communities to be informed of the true nature of rights and the proper role of government. Our first step is to take students through The 5,000 Year Leap which teaches the 28 basic principles the Founders used to establish this great nation, written many years ago by the renowned scholar Dr. W. Cleon Skousen.

Members of the Rising Generation believe the Founding Fathers were so accurate in their understanding of human nature and in the way they distributed political power that anything more or less than what they created will lead to political failure. We believe the Founders were inspired to establish the Constitution and we seek to promote original constitutional principles as the solutions to today’s greatest political problems.

Members are encouraged to use The 5,000 Year Leap as the foundation for their studies and to do additional research to better understand and teach about the principles in the book. The Rising Generation also uses the Rising Generation Basics Course curriculum to prepare students to eventually engage in more advanced political discussions.

The Rising Generation is a division of the Benjamin Franklin Center that reaches out to young people directly. Its goal is to help young people know more about the Founding Fathers and the sacred Constitution of the United States. To assist young people with learning opportunities, we are organizing official chapter organizations on campuses throughout the country.
