Understanding the Constitution

Understanding the Constitution


A 5-Week Course Taught by Oliver DeMille 

The class will build on Oliver’s seminar, “Hanging By a Thread,” and take participants through the main points of the Constitution, how our freedoms have eroded, and what is needed to get back to a truly free system.

This will be taught in the deep yet enjoyable style students have come to expect from Oliver DeMille, appealing to those who need to learn the basics about the Constitution and also to advanced Constitutional experts — and everyone in between.

Don’t miss this chance to learn about the Constitution from one of the top freedom thinkers of our time!


Each weekly speech will go into a level of depth few people have considered, and help you understand the basics as well as the real details of this great document of human freedom. Those who don’t understand the Constitution will never really understand our freedoms, and this class is a one-of-a-kind course because of the depth and background of the teacher.

This is an excellent class for all adults who care about freedom, and for youth above age 13 who also want to understand the Constitution. Study guides for youth and children will be included with each class email, so parents and teachers can teach the material they learn to younger students. A reading guide for adults will also be included with each weekly module.
