Magna Carta: The 800 Year Struggle for Human Liberty

The Magna Carta, a document signed by the English monarch King John on June 15, 1215 at Runnymede, near London, represents a point in history where the destiny of humanity shifted course. The document, sealed by the king under the threat of rebellion, outlined the framework within which the English monarchy would be permitted to govern and referred directly to private property rights, freedom from arbitrary arrest and representative government. As such it operated as a check on absolutism and paved the path for both the English Constitution which would emerge almost five centuries later and the U.S. Constitution which followed in 1788. Without the Magna Carta, the freedoms and liberty we enjoy today would not have been possible.

Yet today the Magna Carta is largely relegated to irrelevance by revisionist historians and academics who disregard the arduous journey undertaken by our ancestors over the course of 800 years to secure our individual rights and liberties.

This international conference, involving world leaders from five continents and experts drawn from throughout the West, will seek to illuminate the significance of this document for world history, the dangers of failing to recognize its relevance, the centrality of the Anglosphere in the spread of human liberty and will conclude with an examination of how we can stop historical revisionism from destroying our connection to the past.
