This is the book to give to your relatives and friends if you are trying to convince them that our reality is not as we see it. The history we study in school is largely made up. In fact, what we call "mainstream science", "mainstream history", mainstream news", etc. cannot really be trusted. I belong to the ten percent of the population who think we are constantly being lied to by a sinister group of powerful individuals who would like to keep their control over us unabated. I read more than the average individual, and I read anything and everything I could get my hands on. Once you start deciding that you do not want to look at certain sources, you handicap yourself. The much-maligned David Icke, but who I admire so much, wrote a book called "The Biggest Secret". I initially thought that would be a great book for truth seekers to start with. It is packed with information, concisely put together, but the mention of shape-shifters is too difficult for many people to accept, so John Hamer's book is better for these kind of people which I would kindly label "conservative"..ha..ha. If you are still donating to the American Cancer Society to fund their search for cancer cures....you must read this book. I can say a whole lot more, but I think you get my drift. The missing bibliography and footnotes somehow do not bother this reader, probably because everything this book contains is in other publications I have read and there is not much that I have not read since I read at least four hours a day....just to make sure I do not miss anything (including the lies of the negative cabal). It is difficult to convince people to look at information from alternative sources when they have the highly proliferated and the much manipulated mainstream news being doled out daily via the stupid box (TV) which has mesmerized many generations to stop thinking for themselves. My father worked so hard to afford the very expensive private educational institutions they sent me to where I learned, among other things, about expository writing, creating bibliographies, footnotes, etc. We did not have lessons on discernment of truths, and anything along that line. In the beginning, it took a lot of effort for me to wade through the pile high of BS we are being fed by mainstream media daily. There are actually paid dis-informants. If you read only every so often, your BS radar is not well-honed. I easily read an average of 65-70 books a year, and yet I have to exert double effort to be able to do it since English is not exactly my primary language. My love to all of you, truth-seekers. I offend a lot of my religious relatives and friends. It is not my intent. I just find it difficult to let them continue thinking the way they do. We should all be making decisions about our lives based on knowing the truths about everything. I long ago made the decision that I would rather be offensive and truthful than be beloved by appearing religious and docile, and continue to spout all the lies we have been fed for so long. There hasn't been "Inquisitions" for a long time, but I am amazed how their effects continue to reverberate up to today's generations. People still think they should only read materials sanctioned by the church, and other so-called authorities. We cannot arrive at the truth by allowing ourselves to be led like "sheeples" (contraction of sheep and people) to slaughter.
