Morning glory America, Bonjour High Canada, I'm Hugh Hewitt.


That music means the Hillsdale Dialogues upon us.


Once a week, Dr. Larry Arne, usually Dr. Larry Arne, President of Hillsdale College joins me,


and we have been embarked for many months now, and we will remain embarked on reading this book,


The World Crisis Volume One, and it's been a revelation to me, and it gives us an opportunity


to do a little poetry as well. I'm not much of a poet, Dr. Arne, all things hillsdale.hillsdale.edu.


I do not know much about Mr. Blake. I don't know much about poetry. Do you study poetry?


I have some favorite poets. There's a kind of student at Hillsdale College that I admire very much,


and I call them warrior poets. They like poets with, poems with cadence, and sometimes with the


body count, and there's a lot of very noble poetry like that. Well, here is Blake. He uses Blake.


The most important chapter is July 24th through 30th, because the world hangs in the balance in 1914,


and Churchill's memoir of the Week of Crisis begins, prepare, prepare the Iron Helm of War,


bring forth the lots, cast in the spacious orb, the angel of fate turns them with mighty hands,


and cast them out upon the darkened earth, prepare, prepare. Now, you said at the beginning of our


study of the world crisis, we had to pay attention to the quotations and the headnotes.
