Although we live in a Constitutional Republic, we often hear about or encounter other governments of the world. Our own history contains the story of movements that have influenced the American culture. It is important to understand these movements, especially when politicians are vying for our votes.
Collectivism is a study of the various governmental “isms” that have existed in various societies in history. In the ACE Collectivism Course from Accelerated Christian Education, students are challenged to evaluate each “ism” for its strengths and fallacies.
Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) curriculum has Scripture as its foundation, fully integrating biblical principles, wisdom, and character-building concepts into education. Students progress at their own speed through the self-instructional “PACE” workbooks.
The student using this set:
- Studies the origins of collectivism in the revolt of Satan, the fall of man, the Tower of Babel, and classical and neo-classical utopian theorists
- Examines the development of socialist movements from the seventeenth to the eighteenth centuries and studies an account of the fascist movements in Italy, Spain, Portugal, France, and Argentina
