Forced Exit exposes the false premise of the euthanasia movement to make a compelling case against assisted suicide.

Led by advocates of "the right to die" such as Jack Kevorkian and Derek Humphrey, America is embroiled in a heated debate over assisted suicide. Wesley Smith argues that this is not just a compassionate response to those in terrible pain. Instead, Americans must consider the context within which euthanasia would be performed -- the profit-driven U.S. health-care system -- and the inevitable shift toward a policy of legalized killing that will target the handicapped, the mentally ill, and the poor.

Forced Exit reveals the horrors of the Netherlands, where 8.5% of all deaths are attributed to assisted suicide and where Dutch doctors have rapidly moved from euthanizing the terminally ill, to the chronically ill, to the depressed with no organic disease, to killing infants born with birth defects.

Smith reveals positive alternatives: easy access to hospice care for the dying, effective pain control, and independent living for the disabled. And he profiles people who have considered suicide the only choice, but after receiving proper care and assistance have gone on to lead full and satisfying lives.

More Info
Challenging prevailing media stereotypes, Generation at the Crossroads explores the beliefs and choices of the students who came of age in the 1980s and 1990s. For seven years, at over a hundred campuses in thirty states, Paul Loeb asked students about the values they held. He examines their concepts of responsibility, the links they draw between present and future, and how they view themselves in relation to the larger human community in which they live. He brings us a range of voices, from "I'm not that kind of person, " to "I had to take a stand." Loeb looks at how the rest of us can serve young people as better role models, and given them courage and vision to help build a better world. This insightful book explores the culture of withdrawal that dominated American campuses through most of the eighties. He locates its roots in historical ignorance, relentless individualism, mistrust of social movements, and a general isolation from urgent realities. He examines why a steadily increasing minority has begun to take on critical public issues, whether environmental activism, apartheid, hunger and homelessness, affordable education, or racial and sexual equity. Loeb looks at individuals who have overcome precisely the barriers he has described, and how their journeys can become models. The generational choices he explores will shape our common future.

Hard Green; Saving the Environment from the Environmentalists (USED)

$4.99
More Info
This book sets out the case for Hard Green, a conservative environmental agenda. Modern environmentalism, Peter Huber argues, destroys the environment. Captured as it has been by the Soft Green oligarchy of scientists, regulators, and lawyers, modern environmentalism does not conserve forests, oceans, lakes, and streams - it hastens their destruction. For all its scientific pretension, Soft Green is not green at all. Its effects are the opposites of green.This book lays out the alternative: a return to Yellowstone and the National Forests, the original environmentalism of Theodore Roosevelt and the conservation movement. Chapter by chapter, Hard Green takes on the big issues of environmental discourse from scarcity and pollution to efficiency and waste disposal. This is the Hard Green manifesto: Rediscover T.R. Reaffirm the conservationist ethic. Expose the Soft Green fallacy. Reverse the Soft Green agenda. Save the environment from the environmentalists.
