David Hirsch Speech at National Archives II (video).
At the National Archives, it was a joy for David Hirsch to to present the Declaration of Independence split into the six elements of a proposition.

A "three dimensional pyramid", presents the synergies of factual foundation in brown, logical structure in green, and argument in red.
