You're welcome Sue. It's becoming an interesting journey for me.

Thank you, Tricia, for this most interesting look at a facet of the World War I war effort! :) I had not heard of the Four Minute Men before. The list of speech topics was quite revealing. I wonder what the speakers had to say on the suggested topic: "Where did you get your facts?"

I heard about them on PBS. We're watching American Experience: The Great War. :)

I'd guess, "get it from the government; they're the only reliable source." :shock: It's crazy how much free speech and dissent was quashed during 1917-1919. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sedition_Act_of_1918

I wanted to get hold of a few of the "bulletins", which gave the data and talking points for each of the topics. But I haven't found any yet.

Thanks Tricia :D That was very well read and is PLOK :thumbs:

It reminds me of the teacher's loyalty oath 1949

I, as a teacher and citizen, pledge allegiance to the United States of America, to the State of Rhode Island and to the American public school system.
I solemnly promise to support the constitution and laws of Nation and State, to acquaint myself with the laws of the State relating to public education, and also the regulations and instructions of my official superiors, and faithfully carry them out.
I further promise to protect the school rights of my pupils, to conserve the democracy of school citizenship, to honor public education as a principle of free government, to respect the profession of education as public service, and to observe its ethical principles and rules of professional conduct.
I pledge myself to neglect no opportunity to teach the children committed to my care loyalty to Nation and State, honor to the Flag, obedience to law and government, respect for public servants entrusted for the time being with the functions of government, faith in government by the people, fealty to the civic principles of freedom, equal rights and human brotherhood, and the duty of every citizen to render service for the common welfare.
I shall endeavor to exemplify in my own life and conduct in and out of school the social virtues of fairness, kindliness, and service as ideals of good citizenship.
I affirm, in recognition of my official obligation, that though as a citizen I have the right of personal opinion, as a teacher of the public's children I have no right, either in school hours, or in the presence of my pupils out of school hours, to express opinions that conflict with honor to country, loyalty to American ideals, and obedience to and respect for the laws of Nation and State.
In all this I pledge my sacred honor and subscribe to a solemn oath that I will faithfully perform to the best of my ability all the duties of the office of teacher in the public schools.
Subscribed and sworn to before me this day of

When I was sworn in as a police officer in the department I worked for, the oath actually still contained the phrase "I am not and never have been a member of the Communist Party or any other organization working to overthrow the United States." This was in 2003!

I did hear that the oath was revised and this sentence was removed a few years later.

Can I reserve that final slot for this collection? I have recorded an article about Harriet Hosmer, a 19th century American sculptor, just need to finish editing it and get it posted up.

"Harriet Goodhue Hosmer (October 9, 1830 – February 21, 1908) was a neoclassical sculptor, considered the most distinguished female sculptor in America during the 19th century." (Wikipedia)

Hi Colleen, I've reserved #15 for you.

And, while we're waiting for Colleen to finish editing her article, if anybody has a finished recording they would like to see in volume 58, I'll open up a slot for them. Otherwise, when Colleen's article is PL'd, I'll close out volume 58 and open up a new volume.

Johann Fichte and Immanuel Kant on Censorship by Fichte and Kant

7:45

Crig
Thank you, Craig! :) It is certainly illuminating to dip into the correspondence of two learned persons such as Fichte and Kant. I cannot even begin to imagine today's texting and tweeting public being able to present their ideas in such clear and detailed fashion, let alone discuss the implications and consequences of their beliefs on Fichte and Kant's level of discourse. The reading is PL OK.

As you know, Craig, the catalog will only accept one author per selection. When there are two authors, the second author has to be mentioned in the notes to the introduction to the collection (which I write up for the catalog). I'm inclined in this instance to list Kant as the author and Fichte as the secondary, but I will leave it up to you to make the final decision. Please let me know which way you want to go. Thanks.
