Book excerpt: Not Free America is a call to all Americans to take back our constitutional freedoms and break free of “our abusive relationship with our government.” Mike Donovan’s groundbreaking work on behalf of personal liberties has made him an object of fascination on both the Right and the Left. In this groundbreaking book, Mike Donovan, the CEO of Nexus Services, calls out the elites who wield power in our country—not only the elites at the federal level, but the elites who exert control over us in our states and counties, our cities and towns. Not Free America is a passionate call to all freedom-loving Americans to take back our constitutional freedoms and break free of what he calls “our abusive relationship with our government.” Donovan details how the “wholesale shredding of the Bill of Rights” started long before the concurrent crises of Covid-19 and the protests and violence that followed the murder of George Floyd. Not Free America shows us how those events were used by forces in our local, state, and federal governments that had systematically been abridging our rights for decades. These rights, Mike reminds us, are God-given rights guaranteed to us by the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Fourteenth Amendment. As the pastor of the First Christian Church Universalist in Harrisonburg, Virginia, Mike Donovan is far from your quiet country clergyman. A fierce warrior with the spirit of God and the tough skin of a lawyer, he has dedicated his life to protecting liberty and preserving individual rights, serving the underserved, and ministering to those who are overlooked in our broken society. Indeed, there are aspects to his past and present that make him an easy target for judgment from all directions. But Mike Donovan hides from nothing: He openly embraces the faults of his past and dedicates his present to creating a future that helps others move past their own unfortunate pasts. Born to a poor family in Page County, Virginia, he found himself at a young age convicted of writing bad checks, resulting in multiple felonies for which he served seven months in the county jail. But the time he served didn’t break him; it helped make him the man he is today: a man of the law and a man of God who believes with all his heart and soul in the possibility of redemption and the power of moving beyond past mistakes. He also came out of that experience knowing he needed to make a difference for others who found themselves in the same place he’d just been. Not content to talk the talk, Mike Donovan walks the walk in the footsteps of the Jesus who said “I was in prison and you came to visit me . . . Whatever you do for the least of these, you do for me.” Not Free America shows us how to do all that for America and for our children. The book ends with “The Liberty Pledge”: an agreement readers will make stating that they will vote only for lawmakers who agree to uphold the rights and freedoms guaranteed by the Bill of Rights and the Fourteenth Amendment.

Download or read book Freedom Is Not Free written by Alex Adams and published by . This book was released on 2021-10-12 with total page 294 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Liberty and character play vital roles in the functioning of free societies, but we often overlook both. Alex Adams gives them the attention they deserve in this memoir, highlighting his adventures and missteps in seeking to improve the lot of mankind. His insights will particularly resonate with his fellow scientists and engineers, who may recognize themselves in various parts of the story-or see alternate ways to deal with problems. The author's intent is to highlight the good, the bad, and the ugly aspects of human behavior to come to conclusions about how we've arrived at our current state, where we are likely headed, and how we should think about our lives. Throughout the book, he promotes the value of freedom even while recognizing that many have difficulty managing it. Even so, he cautions everyone against authoritarian government as it stunts personal growth and inevitably leads to corruption. Join the author as he shares the lessons he's learned over a long career and urges everyone to reject party politics in Freedom Is Not Free.

Download or read book Freedom from an Illusion of Freedom written by Patrick Lemon and published by Xlibris Corporation. This book was released on 2012-04-25 with total page 293 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: First let me mention that the main characters in the book are the readers and the readers are the audience too. Find out how and what character describes you best throughout the novel. Fear is one of the main forces that create this illusion of freedom. "Just because you are scared does not mean you are entitled to back down," (Lemon). Believing the belief that you are free is the very belief that creates this illusion. Then this belief traps you within an illusion of freedom and is the very belief that prevents you from realizing you are not free by any means of what you thought freedom was and what freedom really is. You believing that belief is what prevent you from discovering, seeing, understanding and experiencing what true freedom is and means. My book is a manuscript that offers the following: internal psychology, optimistic/positive psychology, reflective psychology, self-improvement psychology, self-knowledge psychology, therapy, spirituality, sociology, philosophy, workology, streetology, survivology (higher survival awareness /teens and adults), better relationship awareness (work, couples, or in general) and is a parental guide. This is not a conspiracy theory novel nor is it fiction. It is real events and real experiences anyone can experience. This book is a self-improvement; self-developmental novel that shows people how to find and bring out their deep rooted power, true freedom, and potential of which they never knew existed or never knew how to bring out.

Download or read book Versions of Academic Freedom written by Stanley Fish and published by University of Chicago Press. This book was released on 2014-10-23 with total page 178 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Advocates of academic freedom often view it as a variation of the right to free speech and an essential feature of democracy. Stanley Fish argues here for a narrower conception of academic freedom, one that does not grant academics a legal status different from other professionals. Providing a blueprint for the study of academic freedom, Fish breaks down the schools of thought on the subject, which range from the idea that academic freedom is justified by the common good or by academic exceptionalism, to its potential for critique or indeed revolution. Fish himself belongs to what he calls the “It's Just a Job” school: while academics need the latitude—call it freedom if you like—necessary to perform their professional activities, they are not free in any special sense to do anything but their jobs. Academic freedom, Fish argues, should be justified only by the specific educational good that academics offer. Defending the university “in all its glorious narrowness” as a place of disinterested inquiry, Fish offers a bracing corrective to academic orthodoxy.

Download or read book A Theory of Freedom written by Philip Pettit and published by Polity. This book was released on 2001-08-08 with total page 200 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This innovative approach to freedom starts from an account of what we mean by describing someone, in a psychological vein, as a free subject. Pettit develops an argument as to what it is that makes someone free in that basic sense; and then goes on to derive the implications of the approach for issues of freedom in political theory. Freedom in the subject is equated with the person's being fit to be held responsible and to be authorized as a partner in interaction. This book is unique among contemporary approaches - although it is true to the spirit of classical writers like Hobbes and Kant - in seeking a theory that applies to psychological issues of free agency and free will as well as to political issues in the theory of the free state and the free constitution. The driving thesis is that it is only by connecting up the different issues of freedom, psychological and political, that we can fully appreciate the nature of the questions involved, and the requirements for their resolution. The book does not not seek a comprehensive reach just for its own sake, but rather for the sake of the illumination it provides. A Theory of Freedom is a ground-breaking volume which will be of wide interest to scholars and students in political philosophy and political science.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Because life is not a bed of roses, it’s not that easy to fall and rise up again and again. Some gains may come in an instant, but that is not real success. Real success doesn’t mean winning all the time, in fact, it means winning the war. It’s what’s inside us that counts. Be successful by turning weaknesses into strengths, and take charge by controlling things instead of letting them control you. We accomplish more as we remove the barriers to effectiveness and have the willingness to change and self-audit ourselves. But apart and amidst this struggle and the war for survival, there are those who struggle to breathe. Who are they? Where did they come from? Who are all these people whom we don’t want to think about? Do we not have any kind of mercy or sympathy for them because they are incarcerated and totally isolated from civilised human society? They too are humans made of flesh and blood. If today it’s me, then tomorrow it could be you.

Download or read book Post-Liberalism written by John Gray and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2014-02-04 with total page 368 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: John Gray has become one of our liveliest and most influential political philosophers. This current volume is a sequel to his Liberalisms: Essays in Political Philosophy. The earlier book ended on a sceptical note, both in respect of what a post-liberal political philosophy might look like, and with respect to the claims of political philosophy itself. John Gray's new book gives post-liberal theory a more definite content. It does so by considering particular thinkers in the history of political thought, by criticizing the conventional wisdom, liberal and socialist, of the Western academic class, and most directly by specifying what remains of value in liberalism. The upshot of this line of thought is that we need not regret the failure of foundationalist liberalism, since we have all we need in the historic inheritance of the institutions of civil society. It is to the practice of liberty that these institutions encompass, rather than to empty liberal theory, that we should repair.
