Speakers Sharing American Values

What is Lincoln Lectures?

Speakers Sharing American Values

Americans are rich with stories and ideas rooted in the values of our heritage. The virtues of Liberty and Justice, the protection of Life, or the acquisition and defense of private property have defined the lives of some of our greatest leaders and heroes. Lincoln Lectures exists to provide them with a platform in a time when many are challenging the universal application of the first amendment.

While some people seek a stage to explain why people around them are holding them back, Lincoln Lectures seek to inspire personal and societal growth. Each event theme reflects a selected American value and features speeches about its impact. Speakers are given 16 minutes each and are selected by application.

Lincoln Lectures is a division of Lincoln & Grant, inc., a company inspiring the American Dream through Media + Technology.

What Values are featured at Lincoln Lecture Events?

Each Lincoln Lectures event will identify a different value proposition that was rooted in the heritage of the American experiment, echoed through the Constitution and Declaration of Independence, and re-enforced by President Lincoln.

The following is a select list of some of these values that will serve as the basis for upcoming events:

Liberty

Lincoln said, “Our defense is in the preservation of the spirit which prizes liberty as a heritage of all men, in all lands, everywhere.”

Constitutionalism

Lincoln said, “We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who would pervert the constitution.

Popular Sovereignty

Lincoln said, “The legitimate object of government, is to do for a community of people, whatever they need to have done, but can not do, at all, or can not, so well do, for themselves — in their separate, and individual capacities.”

Justice

Lincoln said, “Let [reverence for the laws] be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges; let it be written in Primers, spelling books, and in Almanacs; — let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice. And, in short, let it become the political religion of the nation.”

Private Property

Lincoln said, “Property is the fruit of labor… property is desirable… is a positive good in the world. That some should be rich shows that others may become rich, and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another; but let him labor diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built.”

Religious Freedom

Lincoln said, “But I must add that the U.S. government must not, as by this order, undertake to run the churches. When an individual, in a church or out of it, becomes dangerous to the public interest, he must be checked; but let the churches, as such take care of themselves. It will not do for the U.S. to appoint Trustees, Supervisors, or other agents for the churches.”

Self – Determination

Lincoln said, “It is not my nature, when I see a people borne down by the eight of their shackles – the oppression of tyranny – to make their life more bitter by heaping upon them greater burdens.”

Upword Mobility

Lincoln said, “The way for a young man to rise is to improve himself in every way he can, never suspecting that anybody wishes to hinder him.
