Weapons of Influence in the War of Ideas

BELOW IS an excellent list of materials you can use to help the education of your friends and family. The list was contributed anonymously, and is reprinted with permission. I have often recommended sharing DVDs as a way to influence your friends, but as our anonymous list-maker has pointed out, sharing audiobooks is a great idea too.
