In 2003, Erik Prince used his wealthy parents’ connections in right-wing politics to land over $1 billion in security contracts for Blackwater, his private security company. During the Bush administration’s war in Iraq, Blackwater was one of dozens of contractors deployed into the war zone at a cost of hundreds of millions of dollars — a deployment with disastrous consequences, especially in Blackwater’s case.

Banned Video Explains What Love Without Limits Really Means

  • Respect for the contributions of men to the family Marriage as a lifelong commitment between one man and one woman
  • Lifelong spousal cooperation as a solution to women’s aspirations for career and family
