Email Email Print

HH: It is the last radio hour of the week on a day of incredible importance, Game three of the World Series tonight in Chicago. Josh Tomlin, the little cowboy, will take the mound. I am joined by Dr. Larry Arnn, who in addition to being the president of Hillsdale College, my interlocutor on these, the Hillsdale Dialogues, and you can find out everything about Hillsdale College at www.hillsdale.edu, and everything about the Hillsdale Dialogues, which are four years now in their breadth and depth at www.hughforhillsdale.com. Binge listen your way through Western Civilization. Dr. Arnn is not only those things, and the leader of a great seminar on totalitarianism, he is a baseball man and as previously revealed, he is an Indians fan. And I believe that you have been enjoying my David Axelrod bipartisan baseball balm moments. It’s a good thing that we have sport, isn’t it, that we can agree on? Didn’t the Greeks lay down their endless wars at least for a period of time in the ancient days to partake in sport, Dr. Arnn?

HH: Today’s Hillsdale Dialogue, the last radio hour of the week originating from Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, where I’m going to be involved in a day-long conference on religious liberty with such luminaries as you heard last hour, Archbishop Charles Chaput, Robbie George, wonderful people devoted to the idea of religious liberty. And religious liberty plays a large role, though hidden somewhat, in Darkness At Noon. In this Hillsdale Dialogue this week, I continue our third and final conversation with Dr. Larry Arnn, the president of Hillsdale College, about Arthur Koestler’s novel, Darkness At Noon. Dr. Arnn, of course, the president of Hillsdale College. All things Hillsdale available at www.hillsdale.edu. Also, all of these dialogues, including the previous two on Darkness At Noon, and all of the Hillsdale Dialogues back four years, are collected at www.hughforhillsdale.com. Dr. Arnn, a good Friday to you. How are you, my friend?

HH: This is the last radio hour of the week. That means it’s time for the Hillsdale Dialogue with Dr. Larry Arnn, president of Hillsdale College. He is, of course, my weekly interlocutor most weeks. Sometimes one of his colleagues from Hillsdale joins me. Everything that we talk about, and have for many years now, available at www.hughforhillsdale.com. Many of you in increasing numbers are binge listening, beginning with Homer up to the present. And I appreciate that. But there are also online courses at Hillsdale, including their courses on the Constitution and on many other subjects at www.hillsdale.edu, as well as the opportunity to sign up for your free copy, I emphasize free copy, of Imprimis, their monthly speech digest which goes off to, like, two million people. So go to www.hillsdale.edu. Sign up for Imprimis and go to www.hughforhillsdale.com to listen to these Dialogues. We are in the middle of a series that tracks Dr. Arnn’s semester-long seminar with his undergraduate students on totalitarianism. And this week, we continue our conversation on Arthur Koestler’s book, Darkness At Noon, a book I told you last week I had not read before. And Dr. Arnn, I’m going to have to beg you for an extra week, because I am only three-quarters of the way through. I don’t want to know how this ends, though I kind of know how it ends. It is so good that I making too many notes and we’re going to need the time. I am curious at the beginning of the second installment, how did your students react to this, because like them, I have never read it before?

HH: It is time for the Hillsdale Dialogue, our weekly ascent from matters political to matters enduring with Dr. Larry Arnn, president of Hillsdale College. He is, of course, my primary interlocutor in the Hillsdale Dialogues, four years of which now collected at www.hughforhillsdale.com, and beautifully rearranged, Dr. Arnn. I was just over at the site, and whoever you’ve got working on this has got binge listening made easy, beautifully marked, and people who are on long drives or who have a day walk, this is now the easiest part of the www.hillsdale.edu website to use, www.hughforhillsdale.com. My hat tip to whoever redesigned that.

HH: It is the last radio hour of the week, and although I am in Cleveland, the Hillsdale Dialogue must go forward, because as I have journeyed across this vast country from Florida through North Carolina up to Virginia over to Philadelphia now through Ohio on my way to Denver and Los Angeles with Jon Voight and Sheriff Clarke and Dennis Prager and Mike Gallagher, at every stop, I probably talked individually with a thousand people and collectively to tens of thousands of people. I have been stopped by people who say they love the Hillsdale Dialogue and what Dr. Larry Arnn and I do each week, sometimes his colleagues when he is away, but usually, Dr. Larry Arnn. All of the Hillsdale Dialogues that we’ve had for four years now available at www.hughforhillsdale.com. Some people binge listen on cross-country drives. Some people read or listen to one a week and then read the book or the author that we’re discussing. www.hillsdale.edu is where you can get all things Hillsdale, including Imprimis, the free speech digest, which many of my listeners get automatically, and you just go and sign up. It doesn’t cost a thing. Hillsdale gives everything away. And all the online courses are there – Constitution 101 the most watched by millions of people, www.hillsdale.edu. Dr. Larry Arnn, it’s astonishing how many people think you treat me so poorly on this show, and yet you keep coming back, and I seem to laugh at it. They, they’re just shocked at how awful you are to lawyers generally.
