I’m not sure how I stumbled upon this book. Maybe it was one of my friends that recommended it or maybe was related to another subject I was interested in. Whatever the turn of events was to get me to read this book, I’m very happy I found it.
Many times I’ve told other folks to “think outside the box” or to “think of the bigger picture”. With all my writings over the years, I’ve only just scratched the surface regarding the question of “Exactly how fucked up is this world?”.
I’ve talked about how religion was invented as a way to control mankind.
I’ve railed time and time again about how capitalism divides us in numerous ways.
And of course politics is a HUGE divider of people.
But in this book, the writer “Larken Rose” pulls together so many smaller ideas into one, large, global problem that seems to be the root of all of the others. Much like the “unifying theory of everything” that pulls together so many theories from physics, quantum mechanics, and general relativity, this book shows “the REALLY BIG picture” that affects nearly everyone on this planet.
It does not matter what direction you lean politically, or what religion you believe in (or even if you don’t believe), or if you support capitalism or not; the vast majority of the people unknowingly support their own enslavement by way of believing in this one superstition.
I’m not going to spoil the surprise, you’re just going to have to read the book.
