Biography

Many people who come to this page know me as Publicola. My name is Joe Connole and I am a graduate student at the American Public University pursuing a Master’s of Arts in History. I have my bachelor’s degree in Politics , with minor in German, from the University of Dallas as well. I’m a member of the Knight’s of Columbus and I am also an Eagle Scout.

My interests are  Political Philosophy, Religion in Society, American History, The American Founding, American Political Thought, Enlightenment Political Philosophy, Roman History, Greek History, English History, German History and baseball. I tend to write about about all of these topics, however generally I focus on the American Founding, American Political Thought, Political Philosophy and American History. You’ll also find that I like to comment on modern events looking to the past for insight into the present. Most of my writings concentrate on commentaries for major writings in Political Philosophy, and also commentaries on American history both what has happened in the past and contemporary history.

I encourage you all to visit my fellow bloggers, specifically Rethink who has helped me in focusing my energies in this blog.

  1. Joe, will you email me your full name so I can use your blog as a source, if you care to give ashok’s name as well I will co-credit you two. Thanks so much

  2. Liked your writing, I am a political science major myself and came across your website by accident. Look forward to reading more posts in the coming months.

  3. This is a question for the blog writer. Where does the title of your blog come from “Formatia trans sicere educatorum”? If you could let me know by emailing me I would be very grateful.

    • Well Nick since you didn’t leave an email address, Formatia trans sicere educatorum is actually considered “dog” latin, meaning that the phrase isn’t real Latin. Certain words are latin, but others are English words “transliterated” into Latin (educatorum.) But the phrase comes from Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 2 episode “Passion.” It means, “Enter all ye who seek knowledge.”

      • If you want to say “Enter all ye who seek knowledge” in Latin: “Ingredimini omnes qui scientiam quaerunt.”

      • Formatia trans sicere educatorum is dog Latin and a pop culture reference.

  4. This is a fantastic resource for anyone who weblogs!!

  5. Its not my first time to visit this website, i am browsing this

  6. Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wanted to say that I’ve really enjoyed browsing your blog posts. In any case I will be subscribing to your feed and I hope you write again very soon!

  7. Very grateful for your blog. I was assigned a paper with the topic of relating an element of Roman history to a piece of modern or current history, and predicting an outcome based on the evidence of history. Your article “Considerations on the Religion of Numa on the Roman People” was extremely helpful – and thanks for putting the citation information! I will return and read more articles in the future.
