Promise #6: Treasure Economic, Political and Religious Freedom

By Zach Lahn on November 05, 2021

“The need of expansion is as genuine an instinct in man as the need in a plant for the light, or the need in man himself for going upright. The love of liberty is simply the instinct in man for expansion.” - Matthew Arnold

At Wonder, we promise your child will learn to love economic, political and religious freedom.

To love freedom, one must be more than simply aware of it. One must grapple with what it means, what it feels like to have it and lose it, and what it costs to preserve it.

James Madison said, “What spectacle can be more edifying or more seasonable, than that of Liberty and Learning, each leaning on the other for their mutual and surest support?”

Through our history experiences, economics and entrepreneurship projects, writings, readings and Socratic discussions, we promise your child will leave Wonder with a lifelong understanding of what it means to be a free person living in a free society.

Come and be edified by observing a literary discussion or a town hall meeting with our learners. What you will witness is no less than the future citizens of the world carrying the torch of freedom within their hearts and articulating how best to use this gift responsibly as individuals and a community.
