Registration and Application

If you register, and fill out your profile, you can gain access to our our 'social' platform and the Everyone forum. Registering allows you to participate in the discourse until an event, training course, or academic course is interesting to you.
Apply if you want to take a course, attend an event, or engage in training. The primary purpose of application is to prevent you from failing, or burdening our instructors, because you aren't ready or able yet - and that's because we don't refund if you change your mind. (just like universities.) The other reason is that there are dishonest people in this world, and we want an opportunity to filter them out.

We teach the law, argument, rule, warfare, fighting, and mindfulness.

We aren’t too fond of memes, trolling, sh-tposting, or time-wasting.

And we aren’t too fond of porn or erotica either.

That doesn’t mean they don’t have a place. It just means that this isn’t one of those places.

That said, if it’s true and reciprocal, then it’s true and reciprocal, and all truthful and reciprocal speech is within the law.

If it’s not true, and not reciprocal it is not.

Taking Courses

Course Structure
The courses will work just like every other college/university with an online component:
1 – Lecture (video);
2 – Assignment (usually short essay questions), and;
3 – Online discussions (in other words, a lot of help is available, because that’s part of ‘our thing’ is teaching one another.)

Why Videos? Given our international reach, the only way to cover all the time zones and accommodate everyone’s schedules is to make videos rather than live lectures, but conduct discussions around the clock just as we do now. So, video, assignment, discussion.  In our english speaking, scandinavian, and spanish countries alone, we have people online nearly round the clock.  If we are able to build up our english speakers in Ukraine, we will be certain to have round the clock coverage.

The other reason is to allow flexibility in due dates for course work, and some self-pacing, although within a limited window. The reason being that we are trying to make it possible for ‘ordinary working class people’ to get this depth of education as easily and cheaply as possible.

Workload
The workload will be the same as university, which is two hours of work to every one hour of course time. This is extremely hard for me to judge and we will have to tailor it going forward. Mostly I see short readings with some writing.

Some classes are 6 credits (two semesters of work) and some are 3 (one semester’s worth of work), and we have added some 1 credit courses as well. We are not bound by time constraints as much as universities so we will accelerate or slow the courses on demand

So, this is not one of those multiple choice things (gut courses). We want our education to be meaningful and rock solid and doing it online this way produces extraordinarily good data for the accreditation process.

These courses will be (we promise) as good or better than those you would receive in the top ten universities. If you want to study law, it’s Yale and Harvard, if you want tech and science it’s MIT and Stanford. But if you survey the courses at these universities and compare them to ours, you will find that we are teaching far more substantial content than those others do, even at that level of university.

Our grading system is a bit old fashioned with the expectation that most students should pass with Success, and very few students with Mastery and very, very, few with Distinction. In other words, this is very similar to a pass-fail grading system with two awards for very exceptional work.

 

Distinction: Earned by work whose excellent quality indicates a full mastery of the subject and, is of extraordinary distinction.

Mastery: Earned by work that indicates a good comprehension of the course material, a good command of the skills needed to work with the course material, and the student’s full engagement with the course requirements and activities.

Success or Pass: Earned by work that indicates an adequate and satisfactory comprehension of the course material and the skills needed to work with the course material and that indicates the student has met the basic requirements for completing assigned work and participating in class activities.

IncompleteEarned by work that is unsatisfactory but that indicates some minimal command of the course materials and some minimal participation in class activities that is worthy of course credit toward the degree.

Incomplete or Fail: Earned by work which is unsatisfactory and unworthy of course credit towards the degree.

For very good reasons.

  1. To provide you and others confidence in your investment of time and effort.
  2. To provide social, physical (fitness, fighting, war) and strategy (how to conduct war), the natural law and government under the natural law – the most ‘complete’ western aristocratic education that you can recieve.
  3. Our methodology requires a rather great deal of general knowledge that you have been denied in order to suppress the continuation of western civilization, and we need to provide that suppressed education in order for you to be most effective with the application of propertarianism.
  4. To provide consistent training so that you all ‘sound the same’, and therefor preserve the brand value (persuasive value) of the methodology.
  5. To provide the full set of courses necessary for a judicial priesthood in the natural law, to transform our civilization just as thoroughly as did the M-P-F’s.
  6. To weaken any possible criticism.

 

In other words, this is going to be serious work. I am very much against ‘dumbing down’.

Over the past few years, we have found that we can teach the core, including: The Grammars, Testimonial Truth, including Operational Language and Propertarian Ethics, and even the construction of strictly constructed, algorithmic law.  It’s actually not that hard after you practice it a bit.

But the amount of general knowledge required to do so is non-trivial.

So we have shortened the book by making it entirely about the law, and the application of the law, and the construction of constitutions with the law, rather than providing general knowledge on a ride variety of subjects.

As such the courses are a supplement..

We need to produce the core courses first but yes, one of the most frequent requests is a curriculum for preschool, primary school, grade school, and high school, that ends the infantilization of our young and prevents them from socialization and real life experience, and instead, educates them to live the Epicurean, Stoic, or Aristocratic life of fulfillment and achievement.

Purchases

We take the usual credit cards, and Paypal. If that's not possible for you, contact us and we will figure out how to help you.

Our goal is to make student loans available but that will require our accreditation.

We use pretty mainstream processing. Sometime in 2019 we will be able to take credit and debit card payments manually. We have an international audience and that might cause problems. But please contact us if you are having difficulty and we will find a solution for you.

In a word, "No".

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English.

Accreditation

In the USA anyone can start a college or university, offer training, credits, and certification. It is up to the market to determine whether those certifications have any value. The purpose of Accreditation for the student is to understand the value of those certifications, credits, and degrees in the market. The purpose of Accreditation for the organization, is the access to student loans it provides. Access to student loans will allow us to scale our numbers quickly. Rigorous courses will make accreditation easier. But it generally takes a few years. And that's what we expect in our case as well.

Navigating the Site

The login / logout link is in the black toolbar at the top left of the page.
  • Selecting login will display a popup asking for your credentials.
  • Selecting logout will terminate your session and direct you to the home page.

Once you log in, the Profile link will appear in the Toolbar at the upper left of the page.

Select the Profile link to navigate to "The LawBook Social App".

The "Social" application is organized like "Facebook" and functions largely the same way.

Use the Social Menu to navigate between these pages:

The rest should be self explanatory.

Note: A limitation of the software means that your 'profile settings' are (unfortunately) split between the Profile Page and the Education Page.

Take the Using the Courseware course and watch the video.

Courses consist of a simple checklist of lessons (videos), followed by assignments (usually short readings and short essays).

Many of these assignments will ask you to comment publicly, and then comment on other's work publicly in the course forum. This creates the dialog between you, other students, and the instructor, and it is often this dialog that provides the most value.

In other words, it's pretty simple.

The Usual Account Complications

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.
