I became interested in my ancestry and started feeling like a link of an endless chain that goes down into the bottomless well of the past, late in life, after I had emigrated.
I felt an overwhelming desire to find my family roots and tell my children and grandchildren about them after my mother passed away and the cold emptiness of eternity stood behind my back. My work was rushed by an unexpected illness, a kind of wake-up call that said: “Here’s your last chance to preserve the family history for your descendants and to free the images of your ancestors from the void. If not you, then who?”
I would like to tell an incredible family saga, a story of a branch of the Okunev family that perished in the fire of Holocaust and yet rose from the ashes, like the fabulous Phoenix, and blossomed anew in Israel and America. The core of this story is a true miracle, the incredible discovery of a seemingly lost Okunev branch, the discovery that was made with the help of a certain book.
Behold the Threat of the Incurable Left-Wing Liberalism
New book tells the story about symptoms and complications of the senile disorder from which one of the pillars of Western civilization – liberalism – now suffers.
For decades, we have witness endless tug-of-war battles between conservatives and liberals in the political arena. On the other side, we see left-wing liberalism threatening the roots of our society in many ways and not too many of us understand that modern liberalism has entered into a critical, chronic and perhaps incurable stage of the leftist disease. An engaging talk about political, philosophical and social roots of this dangerous disease is all set to begin with the release of THE INCURABLE LEFTIST DISEASE IN MODERN LIBERALISM, an engaging new book authored by Yuri Okunev.
The booktells the story behind a great battle between Islamo-Fascism and human civilization. This is not a battle over territory or privilege. It is a battle over the very foundations of our being. This battle rages not only on the street, when a fanatic sets off a suicide bomb in the midst of a crowd; it is being waged everywhere – in day-care centers and public and parochial schools; at universities; at the UN; in the press, on radio, television, and Internet.
The outcome is not so certain as some might think. The uncertainty lies not in the strength of the forces of evil, but in the inability of good to mount its own all-powerful force against it. And this inability is in its turn the effect of the senile disorder from which one of the pillars of Western civilization – liberalism – now suffers; that is modern liberalism, which has entered into a critical, chronic and perhaps incurable stage of the leftist disease.
The book shows in detail how the evil is attacking the foundations of our being, and why people end up struggling with uncertainty over their future. Listen as the author discusses how liberalism is suffering, and even failing. Learn why and how modern liberalism now serves as an obstruction in the war between good and evil, why and how it is on the site of terror. Is there still hope? Read the book to find out.
