Nesaranews Mission Statement

Question -- What is the goal of this website? Why do we share different sources of information that sometimes conflicts or might even be considered disinformation?
Answer -- The primary goal of Nesaranews is to help all people become better truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a group discernment process.

"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." – Aristotle

  1. For all of you Mormon haters out there, you can thank the Mormon president Ezra Taft Benson for that quote.

    He was secretary of agriculture under Eisenhower and he, Benson, was the one who met with this communist; who boasted that he would bring down America. Benson tried to warn America. But he's a Mormon so nothing he had to say was worth listening to, right? enjoy your socialism you evangelicals. And if there are any of evangelicals that didn't vote for Romney because he is a Mormon, and you think Obama is the lesser of two evils, you deserve what you get.

  2. Um, not an actual quote from Krushchev. Seriously, Google it.

    You know what tipped me off, besides the way it was so awkwardly worded (a statesman like Krushchev wouldn't talk like that)? The fact that Socialism and Communism are two totally different things. You can't 'turn' Socialism into Communism or vice versa. And you can't give people 'doses' of either, either. Political and economic models don't work like that.

    Either way, just thought readers should know.

    1. Socialism is a base for communism and you can't trust either snopes or urban legends when it comes to something political.

  3. it's true that he may not have said it exactly that way - Benson is recounting the conversation he had with Krushchev and summarizing. Benson's speech is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=SI_aw1A_ssg
