Captain Fantastic: What is the Bill of Rights?
00:00:52 - 00:02:34

Ben proves to Harper that his children learn effectively through his own education system when she claims they don't learn about the world, as they would in traditional education. Ben asks Harper's children to define the Bill of Rights, to which they provide lackluster and simple responses. Ben then asks his eight-year old daughter about the Bill of Rights, and she cites verbatim part of the First Amendment as well as articulates in her own words the importance of the document, drawing a contrast to China.
