Show 1728 ACU Sunday Series- The Purifying Power of Gethsemane

To watch this speech visit-

https://youtu.be/w6X425gT4DQ

Elder Bruce R. Mcconkie delivers a messaged titled "The Purifying Power of Gethsemane."

Bruce R. McConkie's final testimony - April, 1985

Apostle Bruce R. McConkie's last address in a LDS (Mormon) General Conference, 4/1985. The emotion he shows was unique for him, which became understandable when his body lay in its casket before the same podium for his funeral two weeks later.

 

"I am one of his witnesses, and in a coming day I shall feel the nail marks in his hands and in his feet and shall wet his feet with my tears.

"But I shall not know any better then than I know now that he is God's Almighty Son, that he is our Savior and Redeemer, and that salvation comes in and through his atoning blood and in no other way."

Show 1726 Documentary- The Case for Israel - Democracy's Outpost

To watch this free film documentary visit-

https://youtu.be/fPch-1CrW_A

A landmark documentary film with Alan Dershowitz Publisher: Emet Productions, 2009 This documentary was produced to present a vigorous case for Israel -- for its basic right to exist, to protect its citizens from terrorism, and to defend its borders from hostile enemies -- in a highly accessible multimedia format. Alan Dershowitz plays a central role in this documentary as adviser and on-camera presence and argues forcefully that real peace in the Middle East can only occur when the Palestinians, Arabs and their allies value the creation of a Palestinian homeland more than they oppose the presence of a Jewish state. Through incisive conversations with key judicial, political and academic leaders, Dershowitz refutes deeply entrenched misperceptions about Israel's history, Jewish claims to a homeland, individual rights under Israel's democratic system of government, the security fence, and military conduct in the face of terrorist attacks.

Throughout the ages monetary incentives in war have proven exceptionally effective. In short, pay the liberators with the spoils of war.

Show 1724 Gulag- History, Camps, Conditions, Economy, Effect, Facts, Quotes 

Gulag: History, Camps, Conditions, Economy, Effect, Facts, Quotes (2003)

To watch the video of this interview visit-

https://youtu.be/aGeHPwgLm6Y

Published on Aug 13, 2016

The Gulag was the government agency that administered the main Soviet forced labour camp systems during the Stalin era, from the 1930s until the 1950s. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/140...

The first such camps were created in 1918 and the term is widely used to describe any forced labor camp in the USSR.[1] While the camps housed a wide range of convicts, from petty criminals to political prisoners, large numbers were convicted by simplified procedures, such as NKVD troikas and other instruments of extrajudicial punishment (the NKVD was the Soviet secret police). The Gulag is recognized as a major instrument of political repression in the Soviet Union, based on Article 58 (RSFSR Penal Code). The term is also sometimes used to describe the camps themselves, particularly in the West. 

"GULAG" was the acronym for Гла́вное управле́ние лагере́й (Glavnoye upravleniye lagerey), the "Main Camp Administration". It was the short form of the official name Гла́вное управле́ние исправи́тельно-трудовы́х лагере́й и коло́ний (Glavnoye upravleniye ispravityelno-trudovykh lagerey i koloniy), the "Main Administration of Corrective Labor Camps and Labor Settlements". It was administered first by the GPU, later by the NKVD and in the final years by the MVD, the Ministry of Internal Affairs. The first corrective labour camps after the revolution were established in 1918 (Solovki) and legalized by a decree "On creation of the forced-labor camps" on April 15, 1919. The internment system grew rapidly, reaching population of 100,000 in the 1920s and from the very beginning it had a very high mortality rate.[2]

Forced labor camps continued to function outside of the agency until late 80s (Perm-36 closed in 1987). A number of Soviet dissidents described the continuation of the Gulag after it was officially closed: Anatoli Marchenko (who actually died in a camp in 1986), Vladimir Bukovsky, Yuri Orlov, Nathan Shcharansky, all of them released from the Gulag and given permission to emigrate to the West, after years of international pressure on Soviet authorities.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, winner of the 1970 Nobel Prize in Literature, who spent eight years of Gulag incarceration, gave the term its international repute with the publication of The Gulag Archipelago in 1973. The author likened the scattered camps to "a chain of islands" and as an eyewitness described the Gulag as a system where people were worked to death.[3] Some scholars support this view,[4][5] though it is controversial, considering that with the obvious exception of the war years, a very large majority of people who entered the Gulag left alive.[6] In March 1940, there were 53 Gulag camp directorates (colloquially referred to as simply "camps") and 423 labor colonies in the USSR.[7] Today's major industrial cities of the Russian Arctic, such as Norilsk, Vorkuta, and Magadan, were originally camps built by prisoners and run by ex-prisoners.

Show 1721 It Takes a Parent- How the Culture of Pushover Parenting Is Hurting Our Kids -and What to Do About It

It Takes a Parent Betsy Hart talked about her book It Takes a Parent: How the Culture of Pushover Parenting Is Hurting Our Kids -and What to Do About It, published by Putnam, at the Conservative Women’s Network lunch sponsored by the Luce Policy Institute at the Heritage Foundation. Betsy Hart argues that today’s “parenting culture” is harmful to children. In her book she explains that listening to the advice of family experts have led parents to stop disciplining unacceptable behavior and to pass the responsibility of decision-making off to their children. Ms. Hart, a single mother of four children, asserts that this type of parenting encourages children to be selfish and prevents them from growing into healthy adults. She answered questions from members of the audience.

Show 1720 David  Friedman on Statelessness

 Dr. David Friedman is a professor of law at Santa Clara University and the author of “The Machinery of Freedom: Guide to a Radical Capitalism”. He discusses anarcho-capitalism, as Tom plays devil’s advocate.

 

The Machinery of Freedom: Guide to a Radical Capitalism Paperback – by David D. Friedman

This book argues for a society organized by voluntary cooperation under institutions of private property and exchange with little, ultimately no, government. It describes how the most fundamental functions of government might be replaced by private institutions, with services such as protecting individual rights and settling disputes provided by private firms in a competitive market. It goes on to use the tools of economic analysis to attempt to show how such institutions could be expected to work, what sort of legal rules they would generate, and under what circumstances they would or would not be stable. The approach is consequentialist. The claim is that such a society would produce more attractive outcomes, judged by widely shared values, than alternatives, including the current institutions of the U.S. and similar societies. The second edition contained four sections, this third edition adds two more. One explores some of the ideas already raised in greater depth, including discussions of decentralized law enforcement in past legal systems, of rights seen not as a moral or legal category but as a description of human behavior, of a possible threat to the stability of the system not considered in the previous editions, and of ways in which a stateless society might defend itself from aggressive states. The final section introduces a number of new topics, including unschooling, the misuse of externality arguments in contexts such as population or global warming, and the implications of public key encryption and related online technologies.

Show 1715 Audiobook- The Vision of the Anointed: Self-Congratulation as a Basis for Social Policy by Thomas Sowell 

This audiobook excerpt serves as an introduction to this fine book. Purchase this book on Amazon or Audible. This book and all of Thomas Sowell’s books are highly recommended by ACU and deserve a place in your Conservative library.

Sowell presents a devastating critique of the mind-set behind the failed social policies of the past thirty years. Sowell sees what has happened during that time not as a series of isolated mistakes but as a logical consequence of a tainted vision whose defects have led to crises in education, crime, and family dynamics, and to other social pathologies. In this book, he describes how elites—the anointed—have replaced facts and rational thinking with rhetorical assertions, thereby altering the course of our social policy.
