How can a book be about nothing? Perks of being self-published, I can do whatever I want. Seinfeld was the show about nothing and they did okay. So maybe not nothing, but nothing in particular. Give me a little leeway; it’s my first day, so there may be the occasional grammatical nightmare. What was seemingly a bunch of random ideas turned out to be interrelated. I took a step back and saw the forest for the trees. So where to start? I think most people can sense that something is wrong and just can’t tell exactly what it is.
Well, it’s that we are living in The Matrix. In that movie Neo is given the choice of the red or blue pill. This book is kind of like that. You can take the blue pill, dismiss it as crazy conspiracy theories and carry on with your day. Or you can take the red pill, research it for yourself and decide whether or not I’m making it up. A good chunk of what is in this book is counter to the beliefs of the majority. Finding out that almost everything you were raised to believe is bullshit can be a hard pill to swallow, especially when coming to terms with the fact that certain dystopian books and movies are closer to reality than fiction.
I just want to see the truth come out. The truth about what? The answer to the ultimate question, of life, the universe, and everything. (See page 42.)
Nearly everything about the world we live in is a lie. The money that everyone works for is fake, the food we eat is artificial, public schooling is more about indoctrination than education, politicians are puppets perpetuating the illusion of choice, wars are based on deception, religion is a control system, the mainstream media provides a distraction, and it is nearly all about keeping everyone dumb, divided, and easier to control. There is a silver lining though. This fabrication is all an optical illusion and only needs to be exposed as such.
If you study history outside of what was taught in public school you begin to see the American Empire for what it really is and its growing resemblance to the Roman Empire right before it collapsed. All the symptoms are there: an overextended military, devaluing of the currency, and a populace distracted by bread and circuses. The present-day version has evolved slightly to become food stamps and around-the-clock sports coverage. Rarely do external forces destroy empires. The corruption usually causes rot from the inside out, and that’s what we are seeing, an empire in decline. I’m sure the Romans thought of themselves as the “indispensable nation” as well.
