Summary

This collection of speeches in support of free trade by the future Prime Minister tracks his early rise in British Parliament.   Throughout his career—as both a Conservative and a Liberal—Winston Churchill was a strong supporter of free trade. As a Conservative, this position was sometimes controversial; early in his career, Churchill opposed Joseph Chamberlain's strategy of imposing tariffs to protect Britain’s economic dominance. When he defected to the Liberal Party in 1904, Churchill continued to be a fierce free trade advocate.   Originally published in 1906, For Free Trade was an influential political pamphlet that made Churchill’s speeches on the subject available to the British people. This collection contains speeches delivered in Manchester or The House of Commons between 1902 and 1905.
Available since: 12/20/2013.
Print length: 118 pages.

    The Dying Citizen: How Progressive Elites, Tribalism, and Globalization Are Destroying the Idea of America (2021) aims to reveal destructive forces and harmful beliefs that are eroding American citizenship. Conservative author Victor Davis Hanson argues that American citizenship — a 233-year-old ideal capable of transcending its birth and fully integrating women and people of color into the political commonwealth — is being undermined by both those ignorant of the Constitution and those who think they completely understand it. 
    Those ignorant of the Constitution are unaware of the negative effects of radical demographic, cultural, or political influences on citizenship. They don't care about history and tradition, or the civic responsibility of being an American. On the other hand, those too intimate with the Constitution believe it needs adjustments to keep up with the times. They want a constantly evolving Constitution that can act as a global model for a worldwide brotherhood.

    Think today's anti-abortion ideas are rooted in religious prohibitions or arguments about where life begins? Wrong: today's anti-abortion movements is largely financed and planned by far-right extremists. Many of them are avowedly fascist and white supremacist, afraid of a "great replacement" of the world's white population by other races, who are working hard to reshape governments and policies across Europe, North America, and around the world. Much of this far-right organizing and funding network, however, has been overlooked by today's feminist and left movements.As investigative journalist Sian Norris uncovers here, it is through attacking abortion rights that fascist ideas from the dark web, incel chat boards, and fringe organizations comes to enter mainstream debate—and to then shape governmental policy across Europe, from authoritarian regimes like Hungary's to liberal democracies like Britain. As Norris goes undercover at anti-abortion activist meetings, and pieces together the money trail linking American think tanks to far-right fascist groups, she maps out the pipeline by which fascism has become respectable across the Global North by taking away women's reproductive rights and autonomy.
