Don't Read This Book. It's Not For You. Buy It and Give It Away

This was my Holiday Gift to friends and family. You may have heard about it already: The Most Dangerous Superstition by Larken Rose

Little children learn morality from their parents: things are good or bad because Mommy and Daddy SAID so. A little later, they may be taught that things are good or bad because God SAID so, in some Holy Book. And still later, when they are taught "civics" in government schools, they will be taught that things are good or bad because "It's the law." (And it's GOOD to obey the law, BAD to break it.") But "the law" is just whatever politicians SAY it is.

A person becomes an adult when he outgrows the need to be given moral commandments from people he thinks of as "authorities," and learns to judge for himself what is right or wrong. 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.

BTW, don't read this one either... by the same guy

How to Be a Successful Tyrant (The Megalomaniac Manifesto).

Pretty hard to get your hands on a copy, anyway.

I've started reading this book, and so far

I'm really enjoying it.

Thanks for the post!

You can print the full review you're quoting, if you like

Its author gives his permission. :)

I did the same thing for Christmas two years ago. But you're wrong about one thing: people on this site DO need to read it. I used to think I was about as thoroughly anti-government and anarchistic as one could be, but Larken showed me I was wrong . . .

Listen dabooda

I've raised three kids...
And hundreds of foster kids...
I know if I want them to do something,
The fastest way to get them to do it,
Is to tell them not to do it.


Sir, are you implying that Daily Paul members are as contrary as little kids?!?

You were?

Okay, no problem.
