Don Jans is a lifelong student of history, with a special emphasis on Russian history. His study of Russian history led him to 1917 which then led him to the study of the teachings of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. He has written six books on the topic of Collectivism (Marxism, Communism, Socialism, Fascism, and Progressivism), with his latest being “Republic or Democracy Does it Matter.” Don has been a guest on numerous nationally and regionally broadcast radio programs. He is a weekly guest on a nationally broadcast radio program where he discusses collectivism and how it is impacting the United States, relating current happenings to the collectivist agenda. 
He has spoken to numerous groups across the nation on the topic of who and what is the United States and what is collectivism. The collectivist movement has called for a transformation of the United States. What is critical for all to understand is what is the transformation; what are we now and into what will we be transformed. Both in speaking and writing, Don is to be direct and straight forward with no regard for the current mandated approach of political correctness.
In his free time, Don's time is spent with his five grandchildren, ranging from 5-year old twins to a 20-year old. He has been able to travel, covering 6 of the 7 continents, and has been to many of the nations that were devastated by communism. Places like Albania, Romania, and the Czech Republic have been most fascinating to him. Yes, the Balkans and the Baltics are his favorites.
Keeping it more local, Don has become a part of the Pickleball cult. He said that "It is captivating, a lot of fun!" I have no doubt that his speech will also be captivating, so don't miss it!
