America’s heritage doesn’t protect us from tyranny, but Americans can. In his book, On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century (Tim Duggan Books, 2017), Yale Historian Timothy Snyder offers twenty lessons from the twentieth century so we don’t repeat history in the twenty-first. Among them: take responsibility; remember professionalism; learn from peers in other countries. In this four-week study group, we’ll read the advisories and discuss the many ramifications — a clear-eyed, deep-down inspection. Optimism is encouraged. The short book will be supplemented with inclass videos and hand-outs.
