Today is Foundations of Freedom Thursday, which means we’ll take the time to answer listener questions on the air- If the Code of Hammurabi was not discovered until the 1900‘s why is there an image of him in the congressional chamber? Why do cities and coastal regions typically vote liberal and country areas vote conservative? Prepare for an intriguing journey back in time to 1750 BC, as we explore Hammurabi's code and answer the question, "Did it have any influence on early American law? " We'll shine a spotlight on the 23 lawgivers honored in the Capitol, especially the revered position of Moses. Amidst this exploration, we'll delve into the charged discussion surrounding the 1980s court decisions to remove religious elements from public spaces, including the Ten Commandments. Imagine if the sentiments of the Founding Fathers about city-dwellers versus rural-dwellers could help decode current voting patterns. Through a close examination of intriguing quotes from our nation's forefathers, we'll attempt to decode this exact mystery. Our journey will take us through intense perspectives about city life from Benjamin Rush, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison. Adding an extra layer to the discourse, we'll also discuss the biblical story of the Tower of Babel and how it is relevant to the idea that attitudes found in the city are detrimental to society as a whole. We'll also take you through the quiet lanes of rural life, exploring its potential benefits, particularly for children and families. Unravel the intricate thoughts of the Founding Fathers regarding urban and rural dwellers, and join us in discussing the advantages of real hard work. Buckle up for an enlightening exploration of historical law and the ongoing urban versus rural debate, all through the insightful lens of the Founding Fathers. Support the show
