5.0 out of 5 stars The most important author today, May 1, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Resistance, Revolution, Liberation: A Model for Positive Change (Paperback)
I only heard the name Charles Hugh Smith a few weeks ago, felt left out that no one told me about his works.

I bought one, read at it, then bought every other book he wrote in Kindle edition. I'm not done with them at all. I think of myself as having an excellent vocabulary, but had to look up words that I've never heard or seen before. One central word is "entelechy" and if you don't know it well, spend some time getting the whole meaning including the Greek heritage.

Now that I've read only some of what I have ahead of me, I cherish the time I can read more.

Mr. Smith not only sees the truth about our massive over indebted world, but the solution, with which I heartily agree.

While I've not yet read, or studied, all of them, one concept stands clear.

I can't copy from a Kindle, wouldn't want to mislead you into thinking my words are what he said, but::: my words, "The looming catastrophe from our debt burden IS NOT something you can ignore. By ignoring it, you are complicit in its arrival. AT LEAST you can show your disagreement. Even if you can't convince enough others to change the world, YOUR OWN CHANGE frees you in a way that is fundamentally life saving FOR YOU."

Remember, my words, not his, but that's the idea.

I have "friends" even "family" who act like, talk like, things are getting better.

In this case, the sky IS falling. It is only a matter of when and who suffers first or most, IF IF each person in his daily life decisions does not choose for the moral choice, the honest truth.

While my past still has my favorite authors, today Mr. Smith is THE man to read, study and heed.
