Joel SkousenFrom the October 12, 2012 issue of Joel Skousen’s World Affairs Brief (www.worldaffairsbrief.com):


Last week I asked for your feelings about a major documentary that I would write and produce detailing the Modern History of Conspiracy and how it controls almost every aspect of what our government is involved in. I’m pleased to announce that the response was very gratifying, and the project is a “go.”

One of the best things to come from this request was the many heartfelt comments I received from so many on how you felt about the briefs and my work over the years. Sometimes I never know how the briefs are being received and it’s nice to feel your gratefulness. Perhaps the most common comment from readers was the appreciation for having a source they could trust to tell the truth and help them discern between reliable information and the disinformation and hype that is flooding the internet.

Hundreds have pledged mostly modest amounts to finance this project, and if everyone comes through with what they have pledged we have what I consider a minimum to ensure success of the project. I didn’t want to start this unless I was sure I could deliver.

Please forward your contributions by check (I don’t want Paypal or the CC companies to siphon off their usual 3% of these contributions) payable to Joel Skousen, 290 W 580 S, Orem, UT 84058. Insert a note that this is “for the Documentary,” so that my staff will know to put this in a separate account. I will keep you all posted as to the progress. We are shooting to have this completed within a year. Everyone who contributes will, of course, get a free copy of the documentary to view and share with their friends. Thanks for your support.

The 20th century communism was — it did some good things here and there: universal education, blah, blah — but basically, let’s face it — it was a fiasco.

At 20:41:

I’m not just blindly anti-capitalism, let’s be serious. Capitalism is the most productive social order in the history of humanity.
