He proposed a complete overhaul of the monetary system, including abolition of the Federal Reserve System. Wuellner writes, "With the rise of historical (= scientific or modern) criticism, rhetoric became marginalised to the point of near extinction or at least increasing irrelevance, in contrast to its fifteen hundred year-long central importance to exegesis."15 Lundbom gives the same assessment: "Style, that darling of the Renaissance, dominated rhetorical instruction in other American colleges and universities through the end of the 19th century, with the result that by 1900 rhetoric found itself in sharp decline."16 Watson also: "New Testament studies became isolated from rhetoric"--perhaps because "rhetoric was truncated and had come to be understood as mere style or ornament."17 However, Lundbom notes there were the seeds of revival among secular scholars: The beginnings of [modern] rhetorical criticism belong to a revival of classical rhetoric that took place in American colleges and universities between 1900 and 1925, a time, ironically enough, when an older rhetorical movement in many of the same institutions had only recently died out....
