He gave a conference address in 1966 regarding the United Order and socialism. It's a pretty good talk, although, I still have some on going debate about what the United Order really was. There was a book written many years ago, I believe it was entitled, Joseph Smith's United Order in which the author very clearly describes the differences between JS's "united order" which was the one described in the D&C and Brigham Young's "united order" which bore little resemblence to the D&C. The UO that we typically talk about today is BY's. That is the one that people confuse with socialism/communism.


FWIW, the JS's united order didn't fail. It simply was reorganized from what was originally and legally formed as a limited partnership, to a trust with JS as the trustee. We still have the UO today. But we call it "The Corporation of the President". It is the financial arm of the church.

And yes, it makes sense. Thanks for your input.
