Do you feel that there is something wrong with this world? That there is more to it than what seems to enter through your eyes and ears? You have questions that need answering and this book will answer them and more... it will set your mind free!
So you think your mind is already free? Read this book and then ask yourself the same question. Unless you are already soaring above the 'flock', you will find that your mind is imprisoned. But there is nothing to fear. The fact that you realise this means that you are setting yourself free... you are waking up.

One phenomenon which I've noticed for a long time- not quite the same thing, but in the same line of territory- is something I call "lifestyle intolerance". That is, someone becomes eligable for mockery or even hostility for wanting to do things or being interested in things which the critic is not interested in. I once read the story of a man who had built up a collection of something mildly esoteric (I forget what-perhaps models of some kind). He decided to dispose of it on the internet and was surpised to find himself receiving abusive comments for the fact that he had "wasted his time" by taking an interest in that line in the first place.
Yes, you can learn a lot about people's attitudes by what they choose to insult. For many years, at least in my country, anyone who takes an interest in something which does not include drinking and/or sex, especially if it involves any study or acquisition of knowledge, may find themselves exposed to the derogatary criticism that they ought to "get a life", to "get out more often".
Intolerance of different lifestyle choices, intolerance of independent thinking. They come from the same source in human nature and predate the internet.

If you are a teacher you have learned to repeat. If you go to university you must learn to repeat - all the people in high positions are good at repeating - they are not free thinkers.
This is nothing new - but you maybe waking up to what is going on.
David Icke says in the book 'I am free - I am me' that humans out sheep the sheep because they do not need a sheep dog to keep them in line. Humans have been trained to put down anyone who thinks freely.edit on 15-3-2014 by Itisnowagain because: (no reason given)
