Above Life’s Turmoil by James Allen 4.7 Stars (28 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

We cannot alter external things, nor shape other people to our liking, nor mould the world to our wishes but we can alter internal things, our desires, passions, thoughts, we can shape our liking to other people, and we can mould the inner world of our own mind in accordance with wisdom, and so reconcile it to the outer world if men and things. The turmoil of the world we cannot avoid, but the disturbances of mind we can overcome. The duties and difficulties of life claim our attention, but we can rise above all anxiety concerning them. Surrounded by noise, we can yet have a quiet mind; involved in responsibilities, the heart can be at rest; in the midst of strife, we can know the abiding peace. The twenty pieces which comprise this book, unrelated as some of them are in the letter, will be found to be harmonious in the spirit, in that they point the reader towards those heights of self-knowledge and self-conquest which, rising above the turbulance of the world, lift their peaks where the Heavenly Silence reigns.

Stoicism: A Definitive Beginners Guide to Apply Stoicism Philosophy in Everyday Life. Gain Wisdom and Improve your Confidence, Resilience and ... by John Harper 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 3 hours ago

Would you like to never fall into reaction to emotions? Wouldn't it feel nice to instead maintain a sense of logic and rationality at all times? When the winds of passion blow, you would stand firm against them, holding tight to what makes sense, resisting emotions as temporary and misleading. If you are unfamiliar with Stoic philosophy then it entails all this, this mindset can come across as cold, but within Stoic philosophy, it is admirable. Maintaining one's calm, Stoics believe, is a point of pride. Just as Stoic philosophers reject unnecessary excitement, they reject desire and fear outright as well. Anything that tilts the mind or sways the spirit, anything that could prejudice someone against reason, it is all bad. There is no gray area here for Stoics, who view desire and fear as tainting forces, evils that separate us from virtue. If we are to live right, then we must make ourselves aware of desire and fear as they arise and then put them away, leave them in their place, do whatever we need to do to acknowledge them and then prevent them from affecting our thought processes and decision making. Does this process probably sound familiar? Well, if you have ever practiced mindfulness, stoic philosophy emphasizes accepting the moment as it is - and accepting the moment as a gift in and of itself. So, instead of looking for things to fill our time, Stoic philosophers would express gratitude for the fullness of time as it is, recognizing the wonder in every moment. Did you know that stoicism was deliberately created to be comprehensible, logical, and beneficial? The study of Stoicism does not require an entirely new lexicon or hours of meditation. This offers an instant, useful, and practical way of finding tranquility and enhancing character strengths which you will find this in the book as follows: • What is stoicism • History of stoicism. • Stoicism and the universe. • Most famous stoicism philosopher. • Stoicism and happiness. • ...

The Way of the Stoic Epictetus: A Short Introduction by Gary W Cross 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 3 hours ago

Epictetus was an ancient Greek Stoic philosopher. Arrian (Epictetus's biographer) tells us that Epictetus 'had no other purpose than to move the minds of those listening to what is best', and that to achieve the best is to be calm, happy and free. This book offers a short introduction to Epictetus' way to achieving these - including the problems that Epictetus identifies as the reasons for us not achieving these; the directions that Epictetus offers to help us to achieve these; and finally, the strategies that Epictetus offers to help us to overcome the problems, to successfully follow his directions and ultimately to be calm, happy and free. This book is part of the series 'Ways of the World' in which I explore the different ways of the world that have helped to shape my mind, and I suggest, the minds of many in the world today. The series already includes a book on Epictetus, namely, 'Exploring the Way of Epictetus', in which I allow Epictetus to explain in detail the way of the Stoic. 'Exploring the Way of Epictetus' includes topics not included in this current book, more quotations and the basis for my translations. My aim in this current book is to present a short, easily assimilated overview of the way of Epictetus.

You And What Army? How to Neutralize Conflict and Negotiate Justice For the Totally Outgunned, Inwardly Timid, Burnt Out or Socially Defunct by Lisa Bracken (New Flight Books newflightbooks.com) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 3 hours ago

From newflightbooks.com: In a world fraught with conflict - sometimes hostile conflict - where access to justice can be politically, even physically barred, negotiation can be a powerfully viable avenue toward resolution. Negotiation, however, implies a compromising process of 'give and take' from those who are relatively equitably situated. For those in gravely unbalanced situations and facing enormous odds, rebalancing the field demands a greatly enhanced degree of insight, planning and persistence... evolving adversaries and conditions while simultaneously securing vital interests. With the capacity to be summoned toward a long-range campaign, negotiation, as a tool of equity and transformation, can fulfill an extraordinarily targeted and disciplined role in illuminating truth; paving access toward justice; and, facilitating sound social evolution, all the while serving short-term needs. Developed in such a way, negotiation demands broad situational analysis; the design and implementation of effective strategies; vigorous community organizing; the building of sustainable coalitions; navigating and leveraging bureaucracies; neutralizing misinformation; launching a relevant education and media campaign; and, leveraging common principals of law. For the figuratively outgunned, inwardly timid, burnt out or socially defunct, this type of coordinated approach may appear beneficial, but nonetheless overwhelming. Offering detailed and scalable field solutions as well as worksheets amounting to an evolved strategic playbook, "You And What Army?" is a practical, easy-to-use, 870 page field guide loaded with powerful, straight-forward applications and techniques useful in structuring an effective, comprehensive and far-reaching negotiation campaign. Long recognized internationally by scholars, advocates, and business leaders, "You And What Army?" is a necessary reference for negotiators, analysts, strategists, advocacy organizations, academics, attorneys, diplomats ...

Killer Stripper : The True Story of Mechele Hughes by James Morris 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 3 hours ago

Kent Lippink's dead body was left on a hiking trail near Hope, Alaska, an hour from Anchorage. He was discovered by utility workers making their way to a job. But perhaps because of the conditions on that remote hillside, or because of the carefulness of the murderers, no physical evidence was found that could have tied anybody to the crime. What little evidence there was, and common sense, pointed towards roommates Mechele Hughes and John Carlin, but not enough to bring them to trial. Leppink's death, however, was almost overshadowed by Mechele Hughes' story: a stripper who had perhaps had her boyfriend murdered in cold blood, by her lover. The salacious story gripped headlines around the country when the case went to trial, a full decade after the crime.

How to Become President: a unique formula of famous presidents, everyone can become president by Dmytro Bondarenko 3.9 Stars (6 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

He dreamed of becoming president as a kid. As a young man he learned the biographies of the most famous Ukrainian and American presidents and got their unique formula for success. According to the formula any man can become president if he does... Chapter I We all laughed at him at school. It was very hard not to laugh at a person who is telling such nonsense. However our classmate Yehor Khmurov, a.k.a. Khmurik, declared very seriously that he would become a president in future. And he didn't mean that he would be a president of the Dental Association or something like that. No, he was telling us that he would become a real head of the whole nation, the guy who appears on the TV screen every day. Well, I can understand a lot of things. Our school was well-known in our city. And many boys and girls were learning there who had ambitious plans for their future. For instance, Van'ka Ivakovsky dreamed to be a top manager of a meat factory and Les'ka Sklyarenko was thirsty to become a top-model. But anyone could see that their wishes were real enough! For Van'ka had an uncle who was working as a deputy boss of our local meat factory. And Les'ka was so beautiful girl by nature that a lot of boys even from the other schools visited us in order to see her. But Khmurik? What could he expect? He was a very ordinary boy, lived only with his mother who barely earned money to feed them both. How could he dream about such extraordinary thing as to become president? 'Listen,' we were telling to Khmurik. 'Are you crazy? Do not you understand that everything in this life is already defined and divided among the big boys?" We poked our forefingers upwards pointedly. "There is no place for strangers. So how can you become president?' 'It is easy to do.' Khmurik always answered calmly. 'I will win the presidential elections.' His firmness annoyed us and we often beat him. In these occasions Khmurik suffered a lot but stayed absolutely undefeated. He shouted furiously in ...

Solar Power: Start For Beginners: How To Setup Your Personal Solar Power System And Supply Your Home With Electricity Solar energy is one of the most successful alternative energy sources currently available in the market. It works on a simple premise. Sunlight contains energy and when this hits the photovoltaic panels it provides power by releasing the electron and allowing it to move; this energy is harnessed and can be used to power any electrical item. Not all panels are equal; some have a better ability to absorb the energy from the sun and are more efficient at creating energy. Perhaps the greatest benefit of this method of generating electricity is the simplicity of it. A solar energy system has very few components and can be put together by almost anyone. Of course, connecting to the main grid must be completed by a properly qualified person. This book is designed to introduce you to the idea of creating your own solar energy; the following topics are covered: • A brief summary of the history and development of solar energy • The components which make up a viable solar energy system • How to install and set up your new solar energy system. • A range of tips to ensure your install is successful. • How to assess your electricity needs, your current consumption and how to reduce your consumption. This chapter also takes a brief look at the efficiency of solar panels. • The conclusion highlights the benefits of this impressive step forward in technology and how you can install it in your home.

NEXT 2020: Avoiding Reality Choosing the Wrong One (Trump Card Book 7) by W Lawrence Lipton 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 19 hours ago

"The Emperor's New Clothes is a classic tale of how people will ignore the evidence of their own eyes, ignore reality, rather than face the condemnation of others too fearful of public opinion to address reality."Those words were published on 8 April 2017, as the title of chapter 5 in book one of this series -- entitled: "No Trump Card: The First Fifty-six Days After Babylon the Great City Fell". They served as a warning to what was to come, and in December 2019, the world witnessed those who praise the Emperor's Clothes (the impeachment propagandist assertions) defend a case with no clearly defined charges or any factual evidence which could be easily enumerated. But, while they condemned Trump's for incompetence, stupidity, and dishonesty, within 30 minutes they were also taking credit for and boasting about his USMCA. Espouse the lies of Schiff and Nadler, but recognize the accomplishments in trade relations and improvements that will strengthen the economy.

The Eight pillars of prosperity by James Allen 4.2 Stars (60 Reviews)    Price verified 21 hours ago

It is popularly supposed that a greater prosperity for individuals or nations can only come through a political and social reconstruction. This cannot be true apart from the practice of the moral virtues in the individuals that comprise a nation. Better laws and social conditions will always follow a higher realization of morality among the individuals of a community, but no legal enactment can give prosperity to, nay it cannot prevent the ruin of, a man or a nation that has become lax and decadent in the pursuit and practice of virtue. The moral virtues are the foundation and support of prosperity as they are the soul of greatness. They endure forever, and all the works of man which endure are built upon them. Without them there is neither strength, stability, nor substantial reality, but only ephemeral dreams. To find moral principles is to have found prosperity, greatness, truth, and is therefore to be strong, valiant, joyful and free.

The Little Book Of Hate by Damion Boyd (Smashwords) Price verified 6 hours ago

There are currently 2 very different ideas on what it means to "hate". First, there is what I call a Vertical worldview [a hierarchical view of Nature and life ascending from plants to animals to people to God] where "hate" is a spiritual desire to destroy. Even God is said to "hate evil" in various passages of Scripture. Think about it. Animals can brutally destroy other animals but we do not say they hate each other. Only a spiritual being can hate. Indeed, hate should have no theoretical place in the Flat (or secular) worldview--which is devoid of spiritual concepts. However, our new culture has derived a physical meaning for the term "hate" which might be summarized like this: "hate" is to act on the presumption of inequality. Did you catch that? In the Flat worldview, to "hate" is to have a Vertical worldview. If you see the world [as it really is] as an unequal environment, you are not worthy of debate. You are a hater. And therein lies the rub. This is why the radical Left cannot debate with the "evil" of the Right.

Poems from a monster: Sometimes, monsters write... by Jasmine P. Antwoine Price verified 7 hours ago

I have gathered together years of scribblings and thousands of thoughts. This book is a compilation of poems and prose I have written over the course of eighteen years. Why a monster? Reading these old pages made me think this person who wrote them... had such a deformed soul it could only be a monster. It is not necessarily a pejorative term - it's just there to highlight the suffering, the destruction, the monstrosity of perceiving the world through too much pain... This is the manifest of me, becoming a human being. I had been a monster and I had hoped to become human. The following pages are not for the faint-hearted. These are the real struggles of a hurting being. I have cried and I have bled over these pages... even now, as I rewrite them. There are no curtains and no closed doors. Don't expect to find pink roses and gentle wind breezes. This is real life! Real life hurts... Readers are advised. ===== Same sorrows growing into the heart of the adult as those sad little tears of the child, going back in the midsts of time. Your soul will never be cured! ===== # Monster "A monster is any creature, usually found in legends or horror fiction, that is often hideous and may produce fear or physical harm by its appearance and/or its actions. The word "monster" derives from Latin monstrum, an aberrant occurrence, usually biological, that was taken as a sign that something was wrong within the natural order. The word usually connotes something wrong or evil; a monster is generally morally objectionable, physically or psychologically hideous, and/or a freak of nature. It can also be applied figuratively to a person with similar characteristics like a greedy person or a person who does horrible things. However, the root of 'monstrum' is 'monere' -- which does not only mean to warn, but also to instruct, and forms the basis of the modern English demonstrate. Thus, the monster is also a sign or instruction. This benign interpretation was proposed by Saint ...

Death Over Life: Secret of Revelation: A Prophecy of America’s Destruction by W. Lawrence Lipton (Kindle Direct) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 3 hours ago

Published concurrent with the Crimean takeover, Death Over Life correctly predicted the Obama response, and the result of America's 2014 Midterm Election. Looking forward from its March 2014 publication, it foresaw 2015/16 as the next period of interest. As with many books written over the author's nearly 40-year writing career, this work explores the possibility that there is a rational basis for ancient prophecy, one which was lost during the period of superstition which marked the medieval era. In his analysis, the author adopts an open-minded scientific attitude to the possibility that there is a basis for long-range predictive analysis of human and environmental interactions which has been classified by properties associated with the term "prophecy." The author rejects religious "End-of-Times" forecasts of global annihilation and treats the "End-of-Times" concept as simply meaning a period of significant and lasting change. There is no Zombie Apocalypse, Spiritual Revolution, or Apocalypse spawning a post-apocalyptic world marked by the collapse of a civilization of the type which hallmark modern cultural entertainment. New Testament prophecy tells of a sequence of events that will occur 2000-years in the future; it declares we will not know the exact dates when these events will occur - a statement which is logical, given that the Biblical authors withheld mention of the date, or event, which marks the beginning of the 2000-year count. All we know is that the clock started in their era. As part of the analysis, the author has constructed a timeline using key events and counted time-based upon the Hebrew Calendar system, rather than upon our more accurate modern variation of that system. By doing so, he was able to establish a Chart of key years which had a remarkable coincidence with modern historic events having the predicted qualities. It is NOT a matter of religious superstition, rather it is simple analytical observation and simple mathematics ...

Psychopaths (English Edition) by Adrián Diego Noé Orfois 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 3 hours ago

The purpose of this work is that you learn how to know and deal with social and criminal psychopaths, who may exist in any sphere of your life, that you know their most private desires and aspirations, as well as how to deactivate them and drive them away of your life forever. This text is not very long, but it is really useful for the purposes for which it was written, since the main goal of this book will be achieved if those persons trying to manipulate you are not able to do so and if all their attempts to damage you are frustrated somehow. Then, and only at that moment, all this work will justify its existence, and the words printed on its pages will leave the book and come to life, taking the shape of thoughts and positive actions, which will turn your life a more pleasant place for you and your environment. Because life is only one and its worth living it in peace and harmony, here I give you some tools that will help anyone pursuing these goals and not being able to reach them because of having in their direct or indirect environment a person with psychopathic features aimed at frustrating their dreams about happiness. Thus, I want to highlight that this short text -if read on time- will make you save years of problems and hundreds of undesired situations. This led me to write it, complying in this way with a self-imposed moral and/or social obligation that I was sorry about until I published this book. Therefore, I hope that every person reading this work can be helped somehow in connection with the relationship they have with social or criminal psychopaths and, in this way, certainly, my pen will rest in peace at last; being fully and eternally thankful to you for having chosen to read my work instead of so many others that may exist in this regard.

This Troubled World by Eleanor Roosevelt (Open Road Media) 3.4 Stars (5 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

Eleanor Roosevelt's stirring call for peace in the face of rising fascism. We will have to want peace, want it enough to pay for it, pay for it in our own behavior and in material ways. In 1938, with fascist regimes gaining strength and global tensions on the rise, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt published a visionary plan for achieving world peace. This Troubled World offers a clear-eyed assessment of the political climate in the aftermath of World War I and a set of pragmatic proposals for avoiding global violence. Anticipating the United Nations by nearly a decade, Roosevelt calls for a new world court to replace the failed League of Nations. She speaks of the need to define aggressor nations and to establish a system of trade embargoes to punish wrongdoing. She also advocates for an international peacekeeping force to intervene where economic weapons are insufficient. Along with these proposals -- which were in direct opposition to the policies of Franklin D. Roosevelt's administration -- Mrs. Roosevelt concludes that world peace cannot be achieved with political machinery alone; it requires a popular commitment to tolerance and brotherly love. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

The Romance of the Forest by Ann Radcliffe (E-BOOKARAMA) 3.6 Stars (37 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

"The Romance of the Forest", first published in 1791, is a gothic classic, a style popularised by writers like Ann Radcliffe. They were often set in castles or great houses, involved a mystery, supernatural elements, a 'damsel in distress' and typically an overpowering male figure. They were very popular during the Romantic period of British literature. Rich in allusions to aesthetic theory and to travel literature, "The Romance of the Forest" is also concerned with current philosophical debate and examines systems of thought central to the intellectual life of late eighteenth-century Europe. Set in a Roman Catholic Europe of violent passions and extreme oppression, the novel follows the fate of its heroine Adeline, who is mysteriously placed under the protection of a family fleeing Paris for debt. They take refuge in a ruined abbey in south-eastern France, where sinister relics of the past - a skeleton, a manuscript, and a rusty dagger - are discovered in concealed rooms. Adeline finds herself at the mercy of the abbey's proprietor, a libidinous Marquis whose attentions finally force her to contemplate escape to distant regions...

ON EVOLUTION BY COMPETITION. THE LAW OF LIFE, KNOWLEDGE AND THE UNIVERSE. by Ray Harvey Price verified 15 hours ago

FORWARD EVOLUTIONARY TRUTH NEEDS TO PREVAIL FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE. This thought-provoking book contends competition is the fundamental of Evolution. Originating from our cosmos, where force yields to greater force causing domination. That we evolved from that system of competitive energy. Ray Harvey contends, that not only did humans need to win physical fights in the war of nature, but those more ably evolved with abilities to keep the team together, had more chance of keeping the team alive. Harvey contends, 'good' and all it embodies, evolved out over millions of years, because it improves co-operation, enhancing the chances of survival. That 'good' is still a force today, because it gives those understanding human groups, more chance of having an elevated platform of well-being. Harvey argues this well-being is not a class, culture, religious or colour privilege, but a matter of truth and honesty. Based on the simplest Evolutionary principle. That is, 'treat each other how you would like to be treated', because one can expect it to be reciprocated. However, Harvey contends, most societies are still based on stifling, conflicting and the divisive nature of antiquated religious texts. Based on unthinking dogma and belief, a contradiction to the efficiency and proficiency developed by the honesty of Evolution. The author asserts the idea that we have most of humanity, based on belief without facts, permeates important decision making in other areas of life. Causing truth and facts to be lost in the ether of beliefs, engendering our leaders to play fiddle, while people suffer and our earth burns. Harvey maintains, there needs to be a more conscious separation of the church from the state, so that decisions for sustainability and peace can be based on the truthful reality of facts and modern worldly reasoning. From this basis of truth, as Evolutionists, we can then out reason the destructive side of domination. Harvey explains, the prevalent confusion of ...

The Pink Doughnut Phenomenon: Corporate America's Attack On Traditional Masculinity by JD McGuigan 4.5 Stars (6 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

The American Dream of working 40 years for one company was never an appealing proposition, but it was once a reliable and respectable way to secure a prosperous today and tomorrow, for oneself and a once healthy family unit. Sadly it is no longer reliable nor lucrative, and there is very little incentive to succeed. When you render most women incompatible and unsuitable, thereby also removing children from a man's aspirations, why should he go to work everyday? This situation continues to deteriorate rapidly. The fix is in, and while work used to be a refuge from political activism, today Corporate America is fully in on it. The corporate world of 9-5 is designed to break down a man's masculine spirit, in a western civilization overrun by the politically correct hysteria of identity politics and third wave feminism, which has compromised Corporate America to form an unholy power structure of ruthless misandry. Gillette, AngelSoft, and Dove are among the many corporations who've jumped on the bandwagon of denigrating all aspects of masculinity while propping up the pitfalls of feminism, up to and including the racket that is #MeToo. Fortunately a backlash is taking place, but not nearly fast enough. The media, particularly Google and YouTube, are firmly controlled by the opposition, who propagate incessantly and control the flow of information, censoring dissenters while providing the deceivers prime SEO positioning. Meanwhile, the labor market continues to devolve, thanks to unchecked corporate greed, mass outsourcing, and greater competition coming out of our universities. There are now more candidates than ever vying for a decreasing number of entry-level jobs. Women have infiltrated the workforce, and basic supply and demand dictates that when the workforce doubles, the value of labor halves. Thus, a Baby Boomer telling you to "get a real job" is today obscure, outdated advice from an ivory tower of a fictional 1970's utopia. Our fathers are out of touch, and ...

Crime: its cause and treatment by Clarence Darrow (GIANLUCA) 4.2 Stars (25 Reviews)    Price verified 20 hours ago

FROM THE PREFACE OF THE AUTHOR: "This book comes from the reflections and experience of more than forty years spent in court. Aside from the practice of my profession, the topics I have treated are such as have always held my interest and inspired a taste for books that discuss the human machine with its manifestations and the causes of its varied activity. I have endeavored to present the latest scientific thought and investigation bearing upon the question of human conduct. I do not pretend to be an original investigator, nor an authority on biology, psychology or philosophy. I have simply been a student giving the subject such attention as I could during a fairly busy life. No doubt some of the scientific conclusions stated are still debatable and may finally be rejected. The scientific mind holds opinions tentatively and is always ready to reexamine, modify or discard as new evidence comes to light. Naturally in a book of this sort there are many references to the human mind and its activities. In most books, whether scientific or not, the mind has generally been more closely associated with the brain than any other portion of the body. As a rule, I have assumed that this view of mind and brain is correct. Often, I have referred to it as a matter of course. I am aware that the latest investigations seem to establish the mind more as a function of the nervous system and the vital organs than of the brain. Whether the brain is like a telephone exchange and is only concerned with automatically receiving and sending out messages to the different parts of the body, or whether it registers impressions and compares them and is the seat of consciousness and thought, is not important in this discussion. Whatever mind may be, or through whatever part of the human system it may function, can make no difference in the conclusions I have reached. The physical origin of such abnormalities of the mind as are called "criminal" is a comparatively new idea. The whole subject has ...

Dad, Why Are You Still Talking About Saul Alinsky, He's Been Dead Since 1972?: Socialism and the Deep State's War on Our Constitution by Steve Borovay 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 23 hours ago

To the up and coming generations, we've reached a crisis point in our nation's history. The last this severe was the Civil War when brother fought brother. Our Constitution has been brutally assault-ed by forces seen and unseen. The 1st, 4th, and 5th amendment rights only apply to those who control the levers of power and not those they target and seek to destroy. This book serves as a history lesson as our past is a guide to the present, and then to the future. In world history, there has never been a socialist country where promises made were promises kept. The picture painted is socialism leads to fairness or "More Hope and More Change." The reality is it never has been that way and only leaves the masses destitute, empowering a few to control all. It's time for all to put your social media aside and pay attention to what is going on in this country as your freedoms are at stake. My one wish is that, hopefully, this book opens your eyes to what is happening to our country and the foundation of our existence, The Constitution of the United States of America with its Bill of Rights. This book is Americana The Good, Bad, and Ugly, presented in a way that only someone who is a bit out of the ordinary can. It was Abraham Lincoln, in a speech in 1856, who said, "Actions speak louder than words." Today, 24/7 hate is all around us only because of Donald Trump's anti-globalist, anti-group think, and anti-Socialist Democracy/Communist actions the opponents to our Constitution seek to use to control our lives. With socialism and the march to globalism and oneness, our freedom to speak out is in danger. Unfortunately, the greatest concentration of the least informed is the young people in our colleges. They have had a lifetime of indoctrination -- both educationally and through the mainstream media. The fantasy of socialism sells over the reality of the numbers. Regardless of whatever you believe in, you must always look at the numbers that go behind it. If the ...

"In presenting to our readers, the second volume of the "History of Woman Suffrage," we gladly return our thanks to the press for the many favorable notices we have received from leading journals, both in the old world and the new. The words of cordial approval from a large circle of friends, and especially from women well known in periodical literature, have been to us a constant stimulus during the toilsome months we have spent in gathering material for these pages. It was our purpose to have condensed the records of the last twenty years in a second volume, but so many new questions in regard to Citizenship, State rights, and National power, indirectly bearing on the political rights of women, grew out of the civil war, that the arguments and decisions in Congress and the Supreme Courts have combined to swell these pages beyond our most liberal calculations, with much valuable material that cannot be condensed nor ignored, making a third volume inevitable".

The labors of those who have edited these volumes are not only finished as far as this work extends, but if three-score years and ten be the usual limit of human life, all our earthly endeavors must end in the near future. After faithfully collecting material for several years, and making the best selections our judgment has dictated, we are painfully conscious of many imperfections the critical reader will perceive. But since stereotype plates will not reflect our growing sense of perfection, the lavish praise of friends as to the merits of these pages will have its antidote in the defects we ourselves discover. We may however without egotism express the belief that this volume will prove specially interesting in having a large number of contributors from England, France, Canada and the United States, giving personal experiences and the progress of legislation in their respective localities.

History of Woman Suffrage - Volume I by Elizabeth Cady Stanton (GIANLUCA) 4.1 Stars (17 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

"The prolonged slavery of woman is the darkest page in human history. A survey of the condition of the race through those barbarous periods, when physical force governed the world, when the motto, "might makes right," was the law, enables one to account, for the origin of woman's subjection to man without referring the fact to the general inferiority of the sex, or Nature's law. Writers on this question differ as to the cause of the universal degradation of woman in all periods and nations. One of the greatest minds of the century has thrown a ray of light on this gloomy picture by tracing the origin of woman's slavery to the same principle of selfishness and love of power in man that has thus far dominated all weaker nations and classes. This brings hope of final emancipation, for as all nations and classes are gradually, one after another, asserting and maintaining their independence, the path is clear for woman to follow. The slavish instinct of an oppressed class has led her to toil patiently through the ages, giving all and asking little, cheerfully sharing with man all perils and privations by land and sea, that husband and sons might attain honor and success. Justice and freedom for herself is her latest and highest demand... "

Civil disobedience by Henry David Thoreau (GIANLUCA) 4.7 Stars (35 Reviews)    Price verified 6 hours ago

In this essay Thoreau openly condemns the choices of the US government, in particular the slavery and the expansionist war against Mexico; For these reasons, he refused to pay taxes, trying to boycott government policy and not to contribute to the strengthening of slavery in the South, but was soon incarcerated (probably only for one night, because his aunt paid for him the tax in question). It is from this experience that Civil Disobedience is born, in which he explains the reasons for his unfair arrest, arguing that it is permissible to disobey laws when they go against the conscience and the human rights; Thoreau thus founded the first movements of protest and nonviolent resistance.

Along with Plato, he is considered the "Father of Western Philosophy".

Female Suffrage by Susan Fenimore Cooper (GIANLUCA) Price verified 12 hours ago

"... The natural position of woman is clearly, to a limited degree, a subordinate one. Such it has always been throughout the world, in all ages, and in many widely different conditions of society. There are three conclusive reasons why we should expect it to continue so for the future. First. Woman in natural physical strength is so greatly inferior to man that she is entirely in his power, quite incapable of self- defense, trusting to his generosity for protection. In savage life this great superiority of physical strength makes man the absolute master, woman the abject slave. And, although every successive step in civilisation lessens the distance between the sexes, and renders the situation of woman safer and easier, still, in no state of society, however highly cultivated, has perfect equality yet existed. This difference in physical strength must, in itself, always prevent such perfect equality, since woman is compelled every day of her life to appeal to man for protection, and for support... ".

THIS little volume (the result of meditation and experience) is not intended as an exhaustive treatise on the much-written-upon subject of the power of thought. It is suggestive rather than explanatory, its object being to stimulate men and women to the discovery and perception of the truth that "They themselves are makers of themselves."... by virtue of the thoughts, which they choose and encourage; that mind is the master-weaver, both of the inner garment of character and the outer garment of circumstance, and that, as they may have hitherto woven in ignorance and pain they may now weave in enlightenment and happiness.

What will humans be like in the future? According to science fiction author Sylvia Engdahl, they will be no different from what they're like now. There will be many innovations in technology and ways of daily life, but people are people, wherever and whenever they happen to live, and that's not going to change. In this book Engdahl departs from the theme of space colonization on which her past essays (available in her book From This Green Earth) have focused, and discusses such topics as artificial intelligence, "paranormal" psi powers, healthcare policy, and the coming loss of personal privacy. Her controversial views on these subjects will inspire thought about what the future is likely to bring.

It would be well for every young man, eager for success and anxious to form a character that will achieve it, to commit to memory the advice of Bishop Middleton: Persevere against discouragements.

Preserve self-possession, and do not be talked out of a conviction. Rise early, and be an economist of time. Maintain dignity without the appearance of pride; manner is something with everybody, and everything with some. Be guarded in discourse, attentive, and slow to speak. Never acquiesce in immoral or pernicious opinions.

As the American election administration landscape changes as a result of major court cases, national and state legislation, changes in professionalism, and the evolution of equipment and security, so must the work of on-the-ground practitioners change. This Open Access title presents a series of case studies designed to highlight practical responses to these changes from the national, state, and local levels. This book is designed to be a companion piece to The Future of Election Administration, which surveys these critical dimensions of elections from the perspectives of the most forward-thinking practitioner, policy, advocacy, and research experts and leaders in these areas today. Drawing upon principles of professionalism and the practical work that is required to administer elections as part of the complex systems, this book lifts up the voices and experiences of practitioners from around the country to describe, analyze, and anticipate the key areas of election administration systems on which students, researchers, advocates, policy makers, and practitioners should focus. Together, these books add to the emerging body of literature that is part of the election sciences community with an emphasis on the practical aspects of administration.

Weary Warriors: Power, Knowledge, and the Invisible Wounds of Soldiers by Pamela Moss (Berghahn Books) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 5 hours ago

As seen in military documents, medical journals, novels, films, television shows, and memoirs, soldiers' invisible wounds are not innate cracks in individual psyches that break under the stress of war. Instead, the generation of weary warriors is caught up in wider social and political networks and institutions -- families, activist groups, government bureaucracies, welfare state programs -- mediated through a military hierarchy, psychiatry rooted in mind-body sciences, and various cultural constructs of masculinity. This book offers a history of military psychiatry from the American Civil War to the latest Afghanistan conflict. The authors trace the effects of power and knowledge in relation to the emotional and psychological trauma that shapes soldiers' bodies, minds, and souls, developing an extensive account of the emergence, diagnosis, and treatment of soldiers' invisible wounds.
