Survival 101

My son Frank Miniter wrote a wonderful book entitled the Ultimate Man’s Survival Guide.

And I don’t want to tread on his turf but if you assembling a survival kit you might consider including something that’s only 3 1/2″ inches by 5″ by 3/8″ think and weighs only ounces.   It’s the New-England primer also available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble on-line etc.

Oh, not for you.  But for children or grandchildren who in dark times, you might have to teach how to read.  Millions of children used it to learn at one time and wound up reading much better and with greater style and panache then the damaged products of today public education.  The primer takes a child in its few pages from the alphabet through words of five syllables.

Read it for yourself and you’ll see how far we’ve come from the education being a means not to simply to read and comprehend but to read and write really well as well as learn morality and fair dealing with one another.  Something which I might add, is only important to a free people.

From lessons for children in the primer:

Love your school, Mind your book, Strive to learn, Be not a dunce

So be not a dunce and put this somewhere safe, just in case you need it.

On another note my piece in American Thinker a couple of days ago Working Our Way Up To Auschwitz got six pages of comment.  I’m very proud of it and sincerely moved by all the wonderful people who wrote me about and said they were moved as well.
