From the Introduction: “It is said that when God wants to change the world, he sends a baby–perfectly timed to grow, learn, prepare and then take action at the right moment. “But there are times when one baby won’t suffice, when the challenges facing the world are just too great; and so instead of a great reformer or a few key thinkers, what is needed is a whole generation of leaders. “This happened in the sixth century B.C. and in the first decade of the Common Era, then again in the American Founding generation. “We believe it is happening again today….”

Teaching a Generation of Leaders for the Twenty-first Century Is American education preparing the future leaders our nation needs or merely struggling to teach basic literacy and job skills? Without leadership education, are we settling for an inadequate system that delivers educational, industrial, governmental, and societal mediocrity? In A Thomas Jefferson Education: Teaching a Generation of Leaders for the Twenty-first Century, New York Times Best-selling Author Oliver DeMille presents an overview of a new educational vision based on proven methods that really work! Teachers, students, parents, educators, legislators, leaders, and everyone who cares about America’s future must read this compelling book. Note: This volume is a philosophical overview, and not a step-by-step guide for implementation of the Leadership Education model. For additional help on application, see The Phases of Learning and Hero Education.
A Scholar Phase Guidebook for Teens, Parents and MentorsLet’s just be honest. If your children don’t get a Scholar Phase, they don’t get a great education. You settle for something less. Something… more mediocre. They were meant for something better. They need a Scholar Phase. Scroll down to view product details and Chapter Outline.

(Scroll down the page for a chapter outline) What were these dangerous events? Why do so few American citizens know about them—especially since they dramatically and negatively impact every detail of their lives? Most importantly, how can their effects be reversed and freedom restored? 1913 answers these questions and more. This is not a doomsday book for alarmists, but rather an optimistic action guide for thoughtful, dedicated freedom-lovers. DeMille provides three clear, detailed, and practical solutions you can implement to restore America’s freedom and revitalize her prosperity. A new turning point of freedom is desperately needed. And reading this book will propel you to the front lines of that shift. “You’re holding a masterpiece on freedom, and everyone who cares about the future of prosperity and freedom should read and apply this book.” –Orrin Woodward, New York Times Bestselling Co-author of Launching a Leadership Revolution “At long last, a piercing analysis that goes beyond predictable partisan bickering and gets to the root of America’s turning point. With this book, we can finally stop spinning our wheels in the battle for freedom, get traction, and make a profound difference.” -Stephen Palmer, New York Times Bestselling Writer & Author of Uncommon Sense: A Common Citizen’s Guide to Rebuilding America

Often cited by the DeMilles as their favorite work to date, this inspirational manual picks up where the primer/overview work, A Thomas Jefferson Education leaves off. It develops in depth not only the philosophy but also the nuts-and-bolts application of each individual Phase, the critical Transitions between Phases and the “big-picture” vision to begin with the end in mind.

Free Enterprise is Better than Socialism or Capitalism
“It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.’ But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance.” —Murray RothbardTHERE is a battle raging for the future of America. And, by extension, this battle impacts the prospects for freedom around the world. Indeed, if the great system of freedom initiated by the Declaration of Independence and established by the U.S. Constitution is lost in the United States, it will likely take centuries before real freedom regains its current levels of influence in the world. This is the great struggle of our generation, but sadly the center point of this contest is unclear to most people. Only a relative few understand what is actually going on behind the scenes. In fact, this battle for our future hinges on two main questions. The first question is: Will Socialism or Free Enterprise be the leading economic system of the 21st Century?
by Oliver DeMilleSocialism is built on a lie. It is based on several of them, in fact. Proponents of socialism in all its variations generally promise that adopting their policies will decrease the number of people suffering and living in poverty. In reality, it always does the opposite—increasing the numbers of people stuck in poverty. Proponents of socialism typically promise that implementing their policies will increase equality in society. In the long term, the policies of socialism always do the opposite. The more socialism is implemented, the more inequality ravages a society. Promoters of socialism routinely promise to make life easier and better for the masses, but in the real world socialism always does the opposite—making life more difficult for almost everyone. When confronted with these realities, supporters of socialism argue that these failing attempts occurred because the people leading past socialist projects “didn’t do it correctly.” And then they promise: “This time will be different.” But it never is. Others insist that while it has historically failed in practice, socialism is good in theory. But in truth, the theory of socialism is flawed.
In this new e-book, Oliver DeMille deconstructs the history, doctrine and mythology of socialism and - in his characteristic style - gives us the tools to analyze, discuss and combat it effectively.
