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.
