The Constitution, the Articles, and Federalism: Crash Course US History #8
 
13:04
In which John Green teaches you about the United States Constitution. During and after the American Revolutionary War, the government of the new country operated under the Articles of Confederation. While these Articles got the young nation through its war with England, they weren't of much use when it came to running a country. So, the founding fathers decided try their hand at nation-building, and they created the Constitution of the United States, which you may remember as the one that says We The People at the top. John will tell you how the convention came together, some of the compromises that had to be made to pass this thing, and why it's very lucky that the framers installed a somewhat reasonable process for making changes to the thing. You'll learn about Shays' Rebellion, the Federalist Papers, the elite vs rabble dynamic of the houses of congress, and start to find out just what an anti-federalist is. Hey teachers and students - Check out CommonLit's free collection of reading passages and curriculum resources to learn more about the events of this episode.Founding Fathers debated over how to govern the new nation, beginning with the Articles of Confederation: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/articles-of-confederation When the Founding Fathers finally wrote the Constitution, they realized that they needed to add The Bill of Rights to get citizens on board with the new government: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/the-bill-of-rights Follow us: http://www.twitter.com/thecrashcourse http://www.twitter.com/realjohngreen http://www.twitter.com/raoulmeyer http://www.twitter.com/crashcoursestan http://www.twitter.com/saysdanica http://www.twitter.com/thoughtbubbler Support CrashCourse on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/crashcourse

Foundations of Democracy, the Magna Carta, Mayflower, Paine's Common Sense Civics
 
21:02
PowerPoint available at: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Mr-Raymond-Civics-Eoc-Academy This video teaches students the importance of the Magna Carta, the Mayflower Compact, the English Bill of Rights and Thomas Paine's Common Sense in influencing the Founding Fathers in creating the US Government. The Magna Carta first demonstrated to Europeans and later Americans that power was not unlimited and the rule of law could be applied to those in power. The Mayflower Compact established the tradition of self-rule in the Colonies and established the first social contract on US soil. The English Bill of Rights provided an inspiration not just for the U.S. Bill of Rights but that protecting rights was a job for the government. Thomas Paine's Common Sense was an inspiration for the Declaration of Independence and greatly led to calls for Americans to establish a government based on republican principles. All of these documents again inspired the founding fathers when creating the U.S. government and a Constitution that would embody these principles. Like most of the videos on Mr. Raymond’s Civics EOC Academy this video ends with a review “quiz.” Remember that the PowerPoint in this video as well as a variety of lesson plans and activities are available at Teachers Pay Teachers. Mr. Raymond’s Civics E.O.C. Academy was designed for students taking the Florida Civics End-of-Course (EOC) Exam. However, as many states are implementing Civics Exams, these videos will work for all students of Civics, US Government, and US History. Currently students have to pass a civics state exam in order to graduate in Idaho, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Arizona, North Dakota, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah. These videos look at all of the civics benchmarks that will be tested on most state civics exams. The Magna Carta is considered the first constitutional document that produced the principle of "limited government" and the beginning of the end of "absolutism." This concept especially resonated with the Enlightenment ideals of the founding fathers in the quest for inspiration in creating the federal government of the United States. The Mayflower Compact established the tradition of self-government from the earliest settlement of the United States. This document also started a tradition of the "social compact" or social-contract that still exists in the United States. It also confirms the establishment of popular sovereignty in America. The English Bill of Rights was of course an influence to the Founding Fathers as they created the US Bill of Rights. Many of the rights and protections of central power listed in the English Bill of Rights following the Glorious Revolution of England in 1689 found the way into the US Bill of Rights including protections from "cruel and unusual punishment," the right to a jury, "free speech," and others. Thomas Paine's Common Sense was one of America's first best-sellers and a huge inspiration to Patriots demands of declaring independence from Great Britain. Widely read in 1776 in colonial America this pamphlet went a long way to convincing reluctant future Americans that the time was right for The Declaration of Independence. Mr. Raymond’s Civics E.O.C. Academy was designed for students taking the Florida Civics End-of-Course (EOC) Exam. However, as many states are implementing Civics Exams, these videos will work for all students of Civics, US Government, and US History. Currently students have to pass a civics state exam in order to graduate in Idaho, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Arizona, North Dakota, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah. These videos look at all of the civics benchmarks that will be tested on most state civics exams. As a civics teacher I have often looked for civics YouTube video clips to show my students. I hope these videos will serve as a supplement to lessons for civics teachers, US history teachers, US government teachers and their students. While they might be a little basic for AP Government students, they could serve as a refresher of basic concepts and content. I have also thought that these videos could help those who are going to take the naturalization test to become US Citizens. I have also been reached by parents whose children are taking Florida Virtual School’s (FLVS) Civics class. ***For noncommercial, educational, and archival purposes under Law of Fair Use as provided in section 107 of the US copyright law.

The US Democracy. How Does it Work?
 
03:17
The United States has always been known for being the leading country when it comes to democracy. The US democracy has been around for the past 230 years which makes it the oldest democracy in the entire world. It has paved the path for security, stability and freedom of speech for the people in the US. It is therefore important to explore the pillars of US democracy and understand how it functions. Don’t forget to subscribe and join our notification group. The modern US democracy was established after the end of the American revolution in 1783. Having a king was not acceptable by the founding fathers and the American people. A new system was needed back then to build a solid foundation for fairness and stability in the US. In 1787, the new constitution was introduced by the founding fathers. Ironically, the constitution would later on set the path for modern democracy yet it does not mention the word “democracy” even once. The constitution required the establishment of three independent branches in the US government that would have distributed authority and power. Now let’s jump into each of these three branches and explore how they work. Lets start with the legislative branch. This branch was established by Article I of the Constitution. It includes both the House of Representatives (which is made of 435 members) and the senate (which is made of 100 senators). These two components are called the United States Congress and function in the US Capitol Building. The US congress is in charge of creating laws, various presidential appointments, passing the national bill, significant investigative powers and declaring war. The republican party currently has the majority in members in both the House of representatives and the Senate when compared to the democrats. This would make the agenda of Donald Trump the current president of the united states that much more achievable since he was the republican presidential nominee. For example, passing a new health care bill would have better odds in this case. Next, the executive branch. This branch was established by Article II of the Constitution. Leading this branch are the president and vice president that are responsible for enforcing the laws passed by the legislative branch. The president often requires advice from a group of experts known as the cabinet. The cabinet specializes in different areas to provide the president with the most suitable advice and knowledge. The executive branch is entitled to commanding the US armed forces, communicate with leaders of other countries in addition to overseeing national security and treasury matters. The Executive Branch employs more than 4 million Americans. That would include the arm force members of course. This enormous number of people would ensure that the tasks of the executive branch are achieved. Finally, the judicial branch. This branch was established by Article III of the Constitution. It includes both the federal district courts and US supreme court. In other words, all the courts in the United States function under this branch of US government. Members of this branch are appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate. This branch is concerned with the interpretation of the US laws and make sure that everyone commits to them. Of course, the courts are also responsible for punishing those who break the law. The number of Supreme Court Justice members is determined by congress and is currently at nine members including eight Associate Justices and one Chief Justice. These three branches of the government collectively set the framework of living in the united states and underline the US democracy.

Why is it indispensable both for understanding the country as well as defending it? In this Conversation, Harvey Mansfield, co-translator of Democracy in America (with Delba Winthrop), presents a detailed exposition of Tocqueville’s masterwork. Mansfield considers the major themes of Tocqueville’s work, including Tocqueville’s treatment of the idea of rights, the role of religion, men and women, self-government, and the relationship of liberty and equality. As Mansfield explains, Democracy in America advocates a more “political” version of the liberalism propagated by Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, and other modern political philosophers. Americans, in Tocqueville’s account, learn the practice of self-government through the institutions they inherit and build upon. American practice therefore elevates the country and citizens above the individualism and narrow materialism that can follow from a liberalism too literally applied from a theory—e.g., the “state of nature.” As Mansfield puts it, Tocqueville remains even in our time the greatest resource we have for “defending a defensible liberalism.”

Citizen: The Most Important Title in American Democracy | Chris Hand | TEDxJacksonville
 
12:08
Each of us holds the most important title in American democracy: citizen. Yet most Americans believe we are powerless to make government respond or hold public officials accountable. A 2015 Pew Charitable Trusts survey found that 74% of Americans believe that most elected officials don’t care what people like us think. But we can make them listen—if we fully embrace our rights and responsibilities as citizens in a democracy, and use the skills of effective citizenship to make government work for us. This is not just a theory. Americans frequently prove that we can make government respond. We, the people, are the beginning and the end of our democracy—and today, more than ever, we must build and flex our citizenship muscles to fulfill that exalted status.

Soft Despotism, Democracy's Drift: What de Tocqueville Teaches Us Today
 
01:48:47
Thursday, Apr 16, 2009 Despotism can come in many forms. In Democracy in America, Alexis de Tocqueville cautioned readers about the possibility that democracy would result in a soft despotism of expanding paternalistic state power that gradually undermines self-government. Soft despotism does not "tyrannize, it gets in the way: it curtails, it enervates, it extinguishes, it stupefies, and finally it reduces each nation to nothing more than a herd of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd." Since the early Twentieth Century, de Tocqueville's warnings have gone unheeded. The result is a soft despotism of scientific experts and administrative bureaucrats.
