A practical venue to reignite virtue can be termed a "micro-hub." A micro-hub is a community center established specifically to promote a Christian conservative viewpoint. It could be found in a church, a business, or even a home. It exists not only to educate on issues but to meet physical needs in its locale. It uses an integrated, holistic approach to energize community-building.
The micro-hub provides a neutral space that can successfully shine light in a local neighborhood to cultivate virtue. The three basic parts of a micro-hub will be a meeting area (such as a coffee cafe or library), a work space (such as a garden), and a resource area (such as a food pantry). The idea of the micro-hub stems from the writings of the Founders, and has been used commonly across America in the past.
As a micro-hub develops, one vital theme will be mentorship. This center will act as a place where people can meet, fellowship, and learn across racial, political, and generational lines. Community members will be able to train and acquire critical skills that are needed for the long-term success of American society. Examples include farming, gun handling, canning, first aid, and more. In the process, traditional values will be passed on, and the community will come together to take action on shared obstacles.
Because the goal is to renew local strength and self-sufficiency, micro-hubs will place a special emphasis on emergency preparedness. These centers will be places that the community feels secure and welcome. There are five main areas of local strength that a micro-hub should address: Spiritual Leadership, Physical Protection, Engineered Resources, Food Resources, and Medicine. Learn more now!
We encourage families, churches, businesses, and civic associations to consider establishing a Virtue Solution micro-hub to nourish people in body, mind, and spirit.
The Founders never believed words written on paper could
keep America free. They clearly
indicated that it is only as the people possess virtue – that is, moral courage
– to enforce them, and to resist their violation, that the Founding documents such as the
Constitution are meaningful. But if the people will take action to use the tools provided, those documents are very meaningful. As James Madison put it, the "guards for liberty" in the Bill of Rights are "more useful than essential."
We believe the Founders designed the Bill of Rights in such a way that its exercise in the face of rising tyranny would result in the construction of strong self-sufficient communities where people cared for one another. Thomas Jefferson in particular set forward this vision, in a plan now known as "Jefferson's Hundreds." Within these communities, virtue would be again multiplied as people regained understanding and skill in areas of personal responsibility. The islands of refuge would become lighthouses to others. As virtue was freshly cultivated, new
life would be given to our liberty, and the American people would be provided with the capacity to weather any economic or political storm.
The foundation for this design is a spiritual awakening of God’s people. The church and family must again fulfill their God-given roles and responsibilities in the culture before we can teach others to do so. There must be a new reformation – a “revolution in the hearts and minds of the people” as John Adams put it – in which Christ is placed in His rightful position as the authority over all of life, and His law of liberty is made our rule of conduct.
No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people, but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue, and by frequent recurrence to fundamental principles.
