  • Amazon shared from Gifted Hands 20th Anniversary Edition: The Ben Carson Story by Ben Carson M.D.
    These young folks need to know that the way to escape their often dismal situations is contained within themselves. They can’t expect other people to do it for them.
  • Amazon shared from Independence: The Struggle to Set America Free by John Ferling
    Galloway did not have to catalog the horrors of democracy for the audience he addressed in Carpenters’ Hall. Popular licentiousness was the least of it. Stay laws to prevent the recovery of debts, the seizure of property, the heavy taxation of the wealthy, and even the redistribution of wealth were thought to be the inevitable accompaniments of popular tyranny brought on by democracy.
    Note: Apprehensions of the continental congress

  • Amazon shared from Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin by Timothy Snyder
    Each of the dead became a number. Between them, the Nazi and Stalinist regimes murdered more than fourteen million people in the bloodlands.
  • Amazon shared from Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin by Timothy Snyder
    As starvation raged throughout Ukraine in the first weeks of 1933, Stalin sealed the borders of the republic so that peasants could not flee, and closed the cities so that peasants could not beg. As of 14 January 1933 Soviet citizens had to carry internal passports in order to reside in cities legally. Peasants were not to receive them.
    Note: Stalin's intentional starvation murder of Ukrainian peasants is even more appalling than I ever realized. Awful.
  • Amazon shared from Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin by Timothy Snyder
    “Open up, or we’ll knock down the door. We’ll take what you have, and you’ll die in a camp.”
    Note: Stalin's regime was brutal...wow.
