ATLANTA, April 22 /Christian Newswire/ -- Michael Youssef, Founder and President of Leading The Way, is pleased to announce the launch of MichaelYoussef.com, a new personal blog. Updated regularly, this blog offers readers a unique perspective on cultural, political and religious issues and the consequences that result from decisions being made around the world.
"One of the saddest things for me as I reflect upon this great country -- a country that I loved and longed to come to as a boy growing up under a socialist authoritarian government -- is that it is no longer the same country I once knew," stated Michael Youssef, Ph.D. "It appears that the very socialism from which I escaped is pursuing me here in America. I believe now is the time to speak up."
"The true 'America' of our forefathers -- a unique experiment in human history with unique liberties, opportunities, and responsibilities -- is being tossed out like a discarded old newspaper," added Dr. Youssef. "Unbeknownst to so many of our citizens is the fact that there is nowhere to go if America fails."
Dr. Youssef's distinguished international experience provides readers with a deeper view of today's issues -- a view not often given voice in today's media-controlled marketplace. In addition to his doctorate in anthropology, his background includes 18 years in a socialist country with firsthand observations of socialism's devastating impact on freedom and prosperity.
