2005 Issues in Focus

  • Why the Individual is the Fundamental Unit of a Just Society: America was founded on the belief that respect for individuals, apart from family and other associations, is paramount to a just and virtuous society. In recent decades, this belief has given way to a "more civil," group-centered, "soft communism" doctrine that places individuals on unequal grounds before the law. (Issue in Focus for 5/1/05)

  • Why Are Jury Trials Crucial to Your Freedom? The Deseret News editorial board denounced your right to be tried by a jury of your peers (in an open court of public record). Why did so many of our nation's founders believe that this right was itself a cause worth dying for? (1/4/04)
