I met Cleon Skousen at a home school convention a few years ago. He was a wonderful speaker, and when he opened up the floor for a Q and A, I asked him why he was speaking at a home schooling convention. He replied that he simply wanted to "be with us" who were actively teaching our children principles of freedom. He felt that home schoolers were the best hope for the future.

I have read his book The Naked Communist numerous times and would highly recomend it as a fabulous expose and history book for anyone, including students who are not being taught the truth about America's fight with Communists.

Read the obituary, it is a wonderful tribute to a true hero and patriot!

The Naked Communist was valuable but the Naked Capitalist was a disaster. It tarred the anti Communist movement, en masse, with a tin foil label, gave birth to what would become McVeighism, and essentially split the Right into the warring factions we see here at FR. Of course it did not do all that alone, but certainly fueled the fire. Too bad, Skousen was talented. Too bad he drank the NWO-obsessive / whacko-beyond-even-the-JBS kool aid and made himself a laughingstock.

The Naked Communist

My dad had this book when I was a kid and I remember how frightening the dust jacket was. When I got the nerve up, I read it and remembered.
