Program 3

An Examination of the American Fifth Column/Progressivism

BasicsProject.org examines and chronicles the derivation, establishment and progressive promotion of the American Fifth Column and identifying key initiatives which pose a very real threat to our country and our American Heritage. From its history and influences, to the modern methods employed to advance the ideology, to the natural consequences of a society that embraces progressive moral relativism and multiculturalism, BasicsProject.org is exploring the many challenges associated with creating a comprehensive research and education program designed to enlighten the American people on the threats posed by an ideology antithetical to the principles of our Democratic Republic.

CHIEF EXECUTIVE FOR FISCAL YEAR

Mr. Frank Salvato

STATEMENT FROM THE CEO

"Two of the biggest challenges facing our country today are the result of (1) philosophical biases impinging upon the mainstream sources we have come to rely upon for credible, accurate information and (2) poor education instructional practices undermining the ability of the schools to meet their civic mission; to foster the qualities necessary for successful government within a constitutional republic. 

What is desperately needed for our country to survive this unprecedented challenge, this “perfect storm,” is an adequate understanding of the principles, ideologies and history that moved the Framers and Founding Fathers to risk freedom, liberty, property and ultimately life, so that their dream of the great American experiment could come to fruition. We, the American people one and all, need to understand why they found so much worth in our nation’s creation and why they valued this endeavor enough to risk dying for it.Because we at BasicsProject.org recognize the direct correlation between a solid, fact-based understanding of the principles that founded out great nation and the American public’s capacity to foment a desire to safeguard the freedoms and liberties afforded us under our Constitution, the covenant between citizen and government, our programs engage today’s educational and informational challenges in multiple ways.

 

BasicsProject.org works diligently to provide non-partisan, primary-source, fact-based information to the American public. Whether through our publications, our educational initiatives or our informational and educational events, BasicsProject.org’s goal is the preservation of our American Heritage and the liberation of the citizenry from partisan politics and special interests in government through the education and intellectual empowerment of the American people."
