The Naked Communist by W. Cleon Skousen

Free Download

WOW! Those of you who think that Communism is dead…are seriously mistaken. Just reading the Naked Communist you get an eerie feeling of familiarity. This eBook is filled with familiarity. Even though, this book is written in 1958…the ideologies, concepts, thoughts, and beliefs are spot on even today. Read it all, including the appendices and then you be the judge.

The Naked Communist was a best seller in the early 1960s, selling more than 1.5 million copies. It found its way into the libraries of the CIA, the FBI, the White House, and homes all across America and overseas in Spanish and excerpted in other languages. In this hard-hitting book an urgent need is finally fulfilled. In one exciting, readable volume, the incredible story of Communism is graphically told.

The Naked Communist contains a distillation of more than a hundred books and treatises on Communism, many written by Marxist authors. We see the Communist the way he sees himself—stripped of propaganda and pretense. Hence the title, “The Naked Communist.” Here is explained Communism’s amazing appeal, its history, and its basic and unchanging concepts—even its secret time-table of conquest! Vital questions are clearly answered—

Who gave Russia the A-bomb?
How did the FBI fight the battle of the underground?
Why did the West lose 600 million allies after World War II?
What really happened in Korea?
What is Communism’s great secret weapon?
Is there an answer to Communism?
What lies ahead?
What can I do to stop Communism?
But the most important question of all that this book answers is how to stop communism and how to do it without a major war.

National broadcaster Paul Harvey at CBS said, “I have never given any volume such an unqualified endorsement.”

The Bubble that Broke the World by Garet Garrett

2015/01/img_2513.jpg

What caused the stock-market crash of 1929 and the Great Depression that followed?

This book blows away the conventional interpretations, not only in its contents but that the book exists at all. The Bubble that Broke the World was written in 1931. Author Garet Garrett ascribes the crash to the pileup of debt, which in turn was made possible by the Federal Reserve’s printing machine. This created distortions in the production structure that cried out for correction. So what is the answer? Let the correction happen and learn from our mistakes.

Such is the thesis of the great Garet Garrett. But take note: this book was a big seller in 1931. In other words, two years before FDR arrived with his destructive New Deal, ascribing the Depression to capitalism and speculation, Garrett had already explained what was really behind the correction.

We are still fighting an uphill battle to explain the true causes of stock-market crashes and economic recessions, especially the Great Depression. But here in this wonderful book is an actual contemporary account that spelled it out plainly for the world to see.

No more can we say that people back then could not have understood. Garrett told them. And thanks to this new edition of this classic and important work, he is telling us again today.

THE GULAG ARCHIPELAGO

THE GULAG ARCHIPELAGO eBook

2015/01/img_2499.jpg

The three-volume book is a narrative relying on eyewitness testimony and primary research material, as well as the author’s own experiences as a prisoner in a gulag labor camp. Written between 1958 and 1968, it was published in the West in 1973, thereafter circulating in samizdat (underground publication) form in the Soviet Union until its official publication in 1989.

Structurally, the text is made up of seven sections divided (in most printed editions) into three volumes: parts 1–2, parts 3–4, and parts 5–7. At one level, the Gulag Archipelago traces the history of the system of forced labour camps that existed in the Soviet Union from 1918 to 1956, starting with V.I. Lenin’s original decrees shortly after the October Revolution establishing the legal and practical framework for a series of camps where political prisoners and ordinary criminals would be sentenced to forced labour. It describes and discusses the waves of purges, assembling the show trials in context of the development of the greater Gulag system with particular attention to the legal and bureaucratic development.

The legal and historical narrative ends in 1956, the time of Nikita Khrushchev’s Secret Speech at the 20th Party Congress of 1956 denouncing Stalin’s personality cult, his autocratic power, and the surveillance that pervaded the Stalin era.

I have read this work back in the late 1990’s. It was a rather long & arduous task, but it was a very enlightening literary work which opened my eyes concerning much of my understanding of the Russian Empire during Stalin’s time. When I walked away from this work of literary genius my eyes were wide open with the notion, “A good Russian is a Russian who spent at least 10 years in the Gulag System!”

Can Man Live Without God by Ravi Zacharias

2015/01/img_2495.jpg

In this brilliant and compelling defense of the Christian faith, Ravi Zacharias shows how affirming the reality of God’s existence matters urgently in our everyday lives. According to Zacharias, how you answer the questions of God’s existence will impact your relationship with others, your commitment to integrity, your attitude toward morality, and your perception of truth.

I must admit, the book was in interesting as well as a quick read. I especially enjoyed his arguments, as they were simple & succinctly put. Hard to argue against them…as there was nowhere left to go.

He also has some downloads at his website, http://www.rzim.org
