"I will stand my ground" Abolitionist ~ David Walker's Appeal "I will stand my ground. Somebody must die in this cause. I may be doomed to the stake and the fire, or to the scaffold tree, but it is not in me to falter if I can promote the work of emancipation." --------- David Walker In September of 1829 he published his Appeal. To reach his primary audience -- the enslaved men and women of the South -- Walker relied on sailors and ship's officers sympathetic to the cause who could transfer the pamphlet to southern ports. He sewed copies of his pamphlet into the lining of sailors' clothing. Once the pamphlets reached the South, they could be distributed throughout the region. The Appeal made a great impression to the slaves the words were inspiring and instilled a sense of pride and hope. Horrified whites, initiated laws that forbade blacks to learn to read and banned the distribution of antislavery literature. They offered a $3,000 reward for Walker's head, and $10,000 to anyone who could bring him to the South alive. Friends concerned about his safety implored him to flee to Canada...... Walker responded that he would stand his ground. "Somebody must die in this cause," A devout Christian, he believed that abolition was a "glorious and heavenly cause." http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/aia/part4/4p2930.html

The single most important issue in the United States is to identify the steps necessary to dramatically improve education. Although we must continue to work for individual rights and capitalism in politics, if we do not win the battle in education, the country is doomed to its steady path downward into socialism.
One important step toward this goal is not to reform the government school system - but to abolish it, and establish a free market in education.
Professor Bradley Thomson, a radical abolitionist, joins us on "Objectively Speaking" to discuss a revolution in American education.
