What too many don’t realize today, and what too few schools or media sources are willing to teach, is that the Classics can be the key to unlocking a richer, fuller life.

Not just in the past, but right now.

Perhaps especially right now.

“Long before our time the customs of our ancestors molded admirable men, in turn these men upheld the ways and institutions of their forebears. Our age, however, inherited the Republic as if it were some beautiful painting of bygone ages, its colors already fading through great antiquity.” – Cicero

When you hear someone wise warn you about the “lessons of history,” this is exactly what they’re talking about. It should be required education.

For too many, it isn’t.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t discover it… use it… and develop that same kind of reputation for “informed leadership.”

In fact, that’s why I want to make this easy for you.

Right now.

By giving you — FREE — 79 of these essential texts in a beautiful 644-page anthology. Yes, at no charge. It’s yours to keep with this invitation.

Why would I give away?

Well, just over 10 years ago, I co-founded an organization called Classical Wisdom, along with Bill Bonner, owner of Agora Publishing.

Bill, like me, has a deep appreciation for the influence and the importance of the Classics.

And, from the beginning, our goal in founding this rather elite society was simple. We want to bring this ancient wisdom to modern minds.

That is, to spread the classics and bring the ancients back to life… and that is why I believe sharing this wisdom now is more urgent then ever…

Your free set, titled The Essential Classics, will go a long way toward fulfilling that mission

Each of the hand-picked original selections you’ll find inside will help you become a more enriched, thoughtful person.

If that’s all we accomplish together today, I’ll consider that worth both my time and yours.

In fact, I’ll go even further, if you let me send you a copy — by following the steps I’ll share with you in just a moment — then this could be the most important choice you’ll make this year.

I genuinely believe that.

However, if you’ve come this far, it’s important that you don’t stop here. Because there’s so much more. Something bigger I hope you’ll agree to be a part of, along with the other elites that we’ve managed to bring together.

Once more, I should explain…

Introducing Classical Wisdom Society

I’m happy to tell you that you appear to us to be an ideal new member of our “Classical Wisdom Society.”

Which is why I’d like to extend an elite invitation to you right now — today — to join our ranks.

What exactly might that entail?

With a Classical Wisdom Society Membership, you will have instant access to a vast repository of classical writings and knowledge. Unlocking this ancient wisdom will help you grow as a person, better equipped to deal with the many challenges of 21st century existence.

Through a Classical Wisdom Society Membership, you’ll learn the lessons of history, giving you greater understanding and insight into our turbulent modern world.

You’ll develop greater perspective, seeing how History repeats itself over and over. And you’ll also gain the ability to better predict future events. You’ll recognize patterns and threads in human behavior that once might have passed you by.

“The study of history is the best medicine for a sick mind; for in history you have a record of the infinite variety of human experience plainly set out for all to see: and in that record you can find for yourself and your country both examples and warnings: fine things to take as models, base things, rotten through and through, to avoid.” ― Livy

To unveil the secrets of the modern world, you first need to unlock the mysteries of the past – and you can with a Classical Wisdom Society Membership!

(And Send Me My FREE Hardback Book… and Gold COIN)


Of course, all the ancient philosophers and historians knew that….

Knowledge Is Power

Don’t Miss The Chance To Grow Your EXPERTISE, Hone Your INTELLECT, And Become Truly WISE

With a Classical Wisdom Society Membership, you can delve into every aspect of the classical period. That includes:

  • Archeology and Architecture
  • Astronomy
  • Culture
  • Dialectics
  • Economics
  • Language
  • Literature
  • Medicine
  • History
  • Mythology
  • Philosophy
  • Poetry
  • Politics
  • Science
  • Sculpture
  • Theater
  • Warfare


The end result of being able to immerse yourself in this vast pool of learning? You will become WISE! (Or at least, WISER…).

When Bill and I chose the name Classical Wisdom it wasn’t an accident.
I wanted to convey the idea that the classical world contained a great deal of wisdom – knowledge and ideas that have stood the test of time and which continue to benefit humanity.

Our mission is to pass this classical wisdom on, enabling people all over the world to learn from it and become wise themselves.

Think about that for a second. In the modern era, how many people have really earned that accolade? How many public figures or celebrities, when you think about them, would you label as ‘wise’?

Politicians? Too few, if any. Supreme Court Justices? Maybe. Social media ‘influencers’? Not likely!

Allow Me to Hand You The
Keys to Classical Wisdom…

Through a Classical Wisdom Society Membership you’ll have all the tools at your disposal to become that all too rare individual: someone who is truly WISE.

As you soak up ancient knowledge and unlock the mysteries of classical writings, you will develop a deep and enduring understanding of the world around you.

The lessons that you learn will help you to succeed and thrive in every aspect of your life. You will be able to apply WISDOM to your actions and choices, employing the knowledge and insights you’ve acquired through immersing yourself in the classics.

In your relationships, in your work, in your studies – the wisdom of the ancient world will show you a path to success. Just ask our subscribers!

“Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to explore and learn and enrich my brain.”

Carol K.

“I love Classical Wisdom and am grateful for the knowledge and insights I have gained from it.”

Rob B.

“I could not be happier with these readings – it has opened up my mind. I had not thought about so many things like that before and now I feel more equipped to handle everything. More capable of being the person I want to be.”

It’s clear what the classics can do for you. But ask yourself, “what can I do for the classics?”

History is Under Attack

Preserving The Legacy Of The Classical Era – With YOUR Help

For ten years, Classical Wisdom has fought hard to preserve and disseminate the knowledge, culture, and traditions of the ancient world. We are world-renowned as experts in our field. When a global publication or news organization needs insight into the classics, they come to us.

The classics are our passion and our mission. To be the guardians of ancient philosophies, history and experiences is a privilege.

But we cannot do it alone. We need YOUR help to ensure that we pass on the mysteries and marvels of antiquity to future generations.

The knowledge that we wish to entrust you with is sacred. It has burned bright for thousands of years.

But there have been times when the flame has faded – and even come close to being extinguished.

The Dark Ages were one such time. As the tribal hordes ravaged Europe, wisdom and learning were no longer valued. Books were burned. Libraries and academies torn down. Scholars massacred.

The ancient knowledge of the classical period came close to being lost – forever.

Thankfully, a handful of learned individuals heroically preserved the legacy of Classical Rome and Ancient Greece – we have a lot to thank them for.

Today, this ancient knowledge is as much under threat as it ever was. And it will take educated, cultured people like YOU to save it, preserving this vital legacy on behalf of humanity.

The Modern World Doesn’t Care About The Classics – But You Should…

This time, the threat to the classics doesn’t come from barbarians at the gate – at least not literally. Instead, classical learning is in danger of being drowned out by all the noise, data and hype of the so-called ‘information age’.

More WORDS are being published every single day than at any other time in history.

On Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media. On blogs. On personal websites. In ebooks. On a whole host of online ‘news’ publications.

But how many of these many BILLIONS of words actually contain WISDOM?

Knowledge worth remembering? Wit and insight that will resonate for a thousand years? Cultural and artistic value worth cherishing?

Decide for yourself.

How much of what you read online is actually WORTH your time? Which TV shows that you watch or stream will still be celebrated 20 years from now? How about 2000 years from now?

And amidst all of this idle chatter and forgettable froth, the classics are being ignored.

How many people under the age of 25 have heard of Herodotus? Which social media ‘influencers’ are spreading the wisdom of Socrates? How many Netflix ‘originals’ draw upon the drama and emotion of Sophocles or Euripides?

The depressing truth is that in the USA, and in the rest of the Western world, we have more or less forgotten the classical period.

There are fewer classical studies courses in universities and colleges than ever. Fewer high school students are studying Latin and Greek. Fewer politicians or leaders have had any kind of classical education.

The classics, once the foundation of all Western education, are no longer in vogue. In fact, they are deeply unfashionable.

And if they are forgotten? The loss would be tragic and damaging – a damning indictment of the waning attention span and poor choices of the human race.

So thank the gods that there are still some of us willing to defend the very best parts of our heritage and culture.

I’ve made it my life’s work to preserve the classics. I’m hoping you’ll join me.


Be the One That
“Carries The Light”

By becoming a Classical Wisdom Society Member, YOU can be one of those to take up the torch and preserve the classics for generations to come.

Think of yourself as an Olympian, carrying the sacred, undying flame aloft. A member of an elite fellowship, bound together by a shared love of classical learning.

Is bearing this torch a burden? No. Rather it lights the way, illuminating the world around you, keeping the shadows of ignorance and barbarism at bay.

Not all are worthy, of course. Not everyone can have the sharpness of wit and the breadth of intellect to read and understand the classics. They are full of tricky concepts, intricate vocabulary, and momentous ideas.

To be quite frank, they are beyond the comprehension of average men and women.

But I know that doesn’t apply to you. You are one of the select few who has what it takes to be a custodian of classical wisdom.

By reading this far, you’re already demonstrating a thirst for knowledge and a passion for antiquity.

So I’d like to invite you to join us on our sacred mission, carrying the lessons of the past onwards into the new millennium… and by doing so, achieve Eudaimonia.

By becoming a Classical Wisdom Society Member, you can preserve the classics for the benefit of ALL humankind.
