what is that about Other One?

It is a fictional novel that pretty much describes how socialism is destroying western civilization.

 

I'm about half way through it now (1168 pages)  It may well be the best book I've read outside the bible itself.    I would warn that it should make any sane person very angry.......    and afraid.......   very very afraid for our future unless something changes pretty quickly.   At least the first half of the book.  Maybe the end is better.....   we'll see.

it sounds interesting, maybe I will get it for Best Beloved. He reads LOTS of  non-fiction books to do with global warming,  'green energy' etc, and gets incandescent at  the scam he perceives  is going on. Your book sounds right up his alley.. thank you for the info

  • Interests:i am interested in early american history, constitutional studies, political science in action, the appleseed project, working with our local churches, my four cats, and many other things that i touch on and come back to later.

i actually have several books i am involved with. firstly, "paul revere's ride" and "washington's crossing," both by david hackett fischer, as well as "the federalist papers" by james madison et al, and the fronteirsmen by allan w. eckert. waiting in the wings are the "anti-federalist papers" and "liberty and freedom: a visual history of america's founding ideas". i enjoy reading of american history from the era of our founding, and am saddened to see what we have made of what we were granted through GODS mercy and founders wisdom. as benjamin franklin stated when asked what we had, "a republic, madam, if you can keep it!"

has anyone read William Goldings Lord of the Flies lately? Apparently it is now 60 years old. Powerful book, as I recall - certainly stays in the memory banks, but it is so long since I read it, have largely forgotten the detail. What sort of impact has it had on  you I wonder?

 yes, I remember other folk saying that it was compulsory - I read it for enjoyment, and got a sort of locked-in fascination, because it tells a truth about humanity. You, dear Mr N, have your own examples of 'humanity' in action I should suppose... I think  the cloak of 'decent behaviour' society wears in 'normal' times hides a much uglier garb should the normality become 'every man for himself'

i remember the movie Lord of the Flies. funny thing.... i was a voracious reader when i was in school, but i don't remember ever reading a single book that was compulsory. none. not that they weren't assigned, but i swear i don't remember reading any of them. not a wrinkle in time, not any of the shakespeare, not even to kill a mockingbird. 

 

the movie, lord of the flies, burned a hole in my memory though. such a debase society they turned into. this last year i started watching "the 100" on the CW channel. (season 2 premiers next month). i remember when i was trying to describe the first few episodes of 100 to my brother, i compared it to the lord of the flies.
