Ezra Taft Benson Society Action Alert! (May 2011)

We want to thank everyone for participating in our last action project of distributing the book “Many Are Called But Few Are Chosen“. It was a great success with over 300 books being distributed, many specifically to Ward and Stake leaders. This helps out a lot to bring about understanding of these Gospel principles as more people learn and use their influence to teach these principles to others.

Though “Many Are Called But Few Are Chosen” is a quick read, many still do better with a more visual introduction to the principles of liberty. This brings us to our current action project…

We would like to get copies of Ezra Taft Benson’s classic talk, “Man, Freedom & Government” on DVD, to as many Ward and Stake leaders as possible, to help in their efforts to bring people to Christ by understanding the principles He has laid out through His servants. We suggest getting copies for your entire Elders Quorum, Relief Society, or High Priest Group leadership (depending on which one you are a member of), your Bishopric/Branch Presidency and your Stake Presidency to have maximum impact. You are also encouraged to purchase additional copies to share with others.

Ezra Taft Benson: Man, Freedom, Government DVD“Man, Freedom & Government” is a shortened and graphically updated version of the talk that Ezra Taft Benson gave at Brigham Young University, October 21, 1968, entitled, “The Proper Role of Government”.

As with our last project, we recommended that individuals give copies of this important work to their ward and stake leadership with a cover letter giving an explanation of the book and why they thought it was important to bring to their attention. This had a major impact!  The feedback ranged from reports of changing of individual behavior in support of the principles of liberty to an increase of teaching of the topic of liberty in ward and stake meetings.  In all cases, the book was received with gratitude and an increase of understanding and appreciation for these principles.

We encourage everyone to participate in this program.

To help accomplish this, we are offering this professionally produced DVD for only $5 each or only $3 each if you buy one for you & each of your Ward and Stake leadership.

  • $5 for 1 DVD ($5/each)
  • $30 for 10 DVDs ($3/each)
  • $75 for 30 DVDs ($2.50/each)
  • $100 for 50 DVDs ($2/each)

After you deliver your copies to your ward and stake leadership, we would love to hear back from you any experiences that you had. Send us an email with that feedback.

You can order your discounted copy of “Man, Freedom & Government” here.

If you would like to help us get more copies of this DVD out beyond your own ward and stake, please consider donating to The Ezra Taft Benson Society. You can donate here

Thanks for all you do for liberty.

Your team at,

The Ezra Taft Benson Society




Dear President/Bishop/Brother/Sister ___________________,

I would like to present to you this copy of “Man, Freedom and Government”. This is a shortened version of a talk Ezra Taft Benson gave at BYU, but with a visual presentation to go along with the talk.

It covers the principles of Doctrine and Covenants section 134 and how it applies to our public and personal, as well as religious lives, and has made a huge impact on me.

I hope that you will take the time to watch this important message; I know you will be glad you did.

Thank you for your service to our ward/stake in the work of the Lord.
