Bragging, Because it Matters
By Larken Rose
Remember that deal I made recently? I said that I'd send a copy of my new book to the first 20 people who responded, on the condition that if it changes how they see the world, they pay for it. (If it doesn't, they just send it back.) Well I'm past 150 people taking me up on my offer, and I'm still doing it. So if you want in on the deal, all you have to do is send an e-mail to "firstname.lastname@example.org" with an address where I should send the book, and promise to read the whole thing (210 pages).
And if you need more of a reason to get the book, here ya go. If the following seems like bragging ... well, maybe it is. But I decided that, since I consider this the most important issue in the world, I can't be bashful about trying to get it out there. So here goes...
There are now three reviews of the book posted on amazon.com. If you go there, and search for "The Most Dangerous Superstition," you can find them in their entirety. Here are some excerpts:
"This is a book to read to discover just how adult YOU really are. The book as a whole is a litmus test that will show whether the reader is an adult with independent judgment, or still a child, believing every fantasy and superstition that the "authorities" in his life have told him to believe."
"This is a book to stretch your mind, and that may be uncomfortable, if your mind is out-of-shape. But like any good workout, the results are very rewarding."
Here are a couple comments that dig right to the guts of the matter ...
""Government" is commonly believed to have a RIGHT to rule us, and we commonly believe ourselves to have a DUTY to obey their commands (which are called "laws.") Rose unleashes a ferocious array of arguments proving that neither that RIGHT nor that DUTY can logically -- or morally -- exist. If that sounds silly to you, YOU
need to read the book. ... The most dangerous superstition IS dangerous because it enslaves our minds, which leads to the enslavement of our whole lives. This is a book to set us free."
"This is an entertaining and informative apologetic against the "divine right to rule" by those who claim to have some secret superior knowledge granted to them by their deity, the State. ... [Mr. Rose] minces no words and is exact in his examples to articulate the absurdities and contradictions that produce an ongoing state of cognitive dissonance in the American public specifically, and the world generally."
I was also happy to see that two people commented on something I mentioned before, which is that, although the language and logic in the book are very simple, so that anyone can comprehend what is being said, many will nonetheless find it difficult to face the disturbing conclusions which the simple, obvious reasoning leads to.
"This book is very easy to read and follow the logic, and does require honest reflection of one's beliefs, as it presents ideas, ideas that have the power to change the world."
"This is an easy to read, hard to digest for some and ultimately conscience freeing treatise on the rightness of the rule by none."
So if you haven't already, either order the dang book directly (www.larkenrose.com/store.html
