Donations, Gratefully Accepted

December 23, 2021

Dear Colleague:

This is a letter of thanks for donations in response to requests for a tax exempt donation in support of American Academy of Distance Learning programs of vital importance!

1. Webcasts on the theme “Loss of Country” that examine how countries can be “lost.” We established our own channel at YouTube and learned how Poland is recovering from Soviet domination.

2. We conducted a Zoom discussion that examined why and how the character of America has been changed by well-intentioned “statesmen” from 1885 through WW I.  We titled it  “Civil Unrest and the Administrative State” and disseminated a “podcast” of that event. Participating were two distinguished conservative scholars the late Dr. Angelo Codevilla and Dr. Christopher Manion

3. We’ve introduced another theme that examines narrative fiction as a means of relating fiction to conditions in civil society.  

Here is how  I described the rationale for this series:

As the United States undergoes transition from one President who advocated the American national interest to a successor who emphasizes global responsibility, we can look to fiction—novels—for leaders, “heroes” even, that are invisible in American politics. We need “heroes”–even imagined Epic Heroes.

You can read more at this link to “Writing and the National Interests”    

Once that theme was established, we posted a “podcast” under the title “Novels by Political Conservatives.”

All this is impressive because “Zoom” enables us to engage our friends and colleagues at little cost except time and organization of materials and time expensed.

You can help us continue to offer “Zoom” meetings by making a tax exempt donation: Please go to http://www.academydl.com/donate

Thanks very much for considering this request!
