A very enlightening book which I enjoyed quite a bit. It actually reinforced my belief that the media and press are the world's largest group of terrorists.
This is an excellent book which should be read by all of those people who believe that "it doesn't hurt to be aware of something like that."
Have I read it? That book's practically my Bible. Totally changed how I thought about everything. Now whenever I watch the news I ask myself, "Now what are they trying to sell me?" I keep hoping Barry will do a sequel given how hysterical everyone seems to be about everything.
Oh and Ultragotha, that was a beautiful post.
