Taproot of Truth Program Overview

Theme for 2024: “Uprooting America’s Taproot of Truth: Living in a Judicialized Post-Law America”

Purposes: To define and defend more effectively the Judeo-Christian worldview of the U. S. Constitution and legal system in today’s Culture War:

  • By developing leaders and activating Americans to raise higher the Judeo-Christian standard -

  • As a result of involvement in a unique research and education adventure -

  • Which demonstrates Judeo-Christian worldview superiority over the Humanistic worldview -

  • With particular emphasis on the often less-visible role of law and judges in the Culture War -

  • On the white-hot battle fronts of religious liberties, evolutionism, abortion/life, and the new sexualism -

  • Utilizing Blackstone’s unique worldview model, which can be conceptualized as an oak tree:

The taproot, which is the deep and straight subterranean anchor and foundation of the tree, providing stability and nourishment, and from which all else springs, i.e., theology/religion
The secondary roots, or “truth tenets,” which may occasionally erupt into view above ground, and which represent the primary components of a comprehensive philosophy, both general and legal: ontology, cosmology, epistemology, anthropology, teleology, and axiology (Note: All of these terms will be explained and illustrated in our Study)
The tree’s trunk, which is the U. S. Constitution
The tree’s branches, each representing one of the four fundamental constitutional culture issues underlying the Culture War
The tree’s leaves sprouting from each branch, each leaf representing a court case or similar issue focusing on the issue represented by that branch.


We are living in a judicialized post-law America….
