Meet GRW Guest Speaker Don Jans
"My Grandchildren's America"
WILL IT STILL BE
THE HOME OF THE FREE AND THE LAND OF THE BRAVE?
Don Jans, the author of "My Grandchildren's America", believes that
America is great because of its promises of individual freedom and
opportunity. Like most grandparents, he believes his grandchildren
will have the ability and desire to excel, if that opportunity is still
available. Will the changes promised and happening now, limit these
freedoms and opportunities?
Don has been a student of history for over 40 years. He has
concentrated in the study of European history with an emphasis on
Russian history. This led him to his study of Karl Marx and Marxism.
In addition to being a popular speaker on Marxism, Don has also had
articles published on the topic. He also has been a guest on regional
and national media broadcasts.
