America Under Mind Control should be read in small doses and meditated on, chapter by chapter. Each poem contains so many pertinent messages that it’s impossible to read them through in haste. Each poem should be dissected and examined, pondered, and discussed. This is the perfect book for round table discussion for people seeking to create change in American society. This is also the perfect gift for someone who needs this information to see our society with a different perspective.
My personal favorite is Corporate America Wealth (the Holidays). For years, I have preached against the commercialism of the holidays. As a Christian pastor in America I am appalled by the use of holidays as a corporate ploy to make money. Thousands and thousands of dollars have been made for companies and they have little to do with the actual holiday. Most holidays are geared around children and parents feel obligated to spend money to create the perfect holiday. My next favorite is, Student Loans, Again, another ploy, along with credit cards to keep Americans in debt. Most people value higher education and spend enormous amounts of money earning degrees that will never repay the debt that they accumulate earning them. More people end up working in a field that has nothing to do with their formal education.
Jamell Crouthers tells it like it is. He is not afraid to let the societal ailments come to the surface. He exposes every vile aspect of our world and shines a light so bright it can’t be ignored. This book is the truth. He makes sense and demands that we address these things in our own minds. No one can read this book and not self-reflect and be convicted in some area. He has written it so that the reader is accountable with the knowledge that he has given. His words almost say, “Here is the knowledge, now what are you going to do about it?” One feels obligated to change habits and trends after reading this book.
My only request concerning this book is that there is a sequel. I feel that the information was so valuable that it is worth a second and maybe a third to clarify and expound. People who know how the world works would agree that it’s hard to hit every piece in one manuscript, however Crouthers does a wonderful job of it. This is the type of book that I would buy for my adult daughters and ask that they read it and discuss it with me. These are things that I had to learn over time, after I had already been victim to much of them. For instance, gambling, sex, and credit cards. If I had known the evil beneath the surface it would have prepared me to meet these things face to face. Perhaps I would have survived them without harm.
Lastly, I hope that this book reaches the masses. Whatever avenue that this book should take to be seen by the most people is the way in which it should go. If there are opportunities for readings and videos, for book clubs and speaking engagements then they should be pursued. This book contains a powerful message that has the capacity to heal what ails us in this country. I sincerely enjoyed this book and recommend it.
The book opens with a perfect line to emphasize it’s intense, and intellectual natural; "Welcome to the Madness of Poetic Writing."--And, mad, deep, profound, passionate writing it is! The flow is like that of a performance artist with dramatic, forceful delivery that causes you to feel the topics and allow them to penetrate, perhaps as harsh as the author does, himself.
One can't help but feel a bit perplexed after reviewing this collection. There are many different pieces, though all center around the novel's main theme: the average American being part of the herd--led to nowhere and nothing, but greed and narcissism, without question or reason. Crouthers dedicates his book to those of us who have a profound understanding of the world's matters, and seek truth and substance over frivolous living and spending, vapid and shallow existence, and the general ignorance brought to the table by almost, all middle-America.
I found it to be disconcerting, and inspiring all at the same time. There is a spiritual side to the author, undoubtedly, and one can't help but appreciate that. He tackles issue from the Rothschilds, and credit card debit, to social media, and everything in between. While some might tag this paranoid and irrational, I found it to be the opposite. Though one might not agree with all of what Crouthers brings to the forefront, it does cause your brain to tick at a faster pace, and no doubt about it--it is an eye-popper.
The book's philosophical street prophet, so-to-speak, provided me with material that enforced upon me an acceptance of the one ideal that never fades--that we are brainwashed as a society, and I among--unfortunately--so few others, desire to break free from the grip of society's massive and strong hands, and to live a life defined by what I CONSIDER productive, and Crouthers seconds that notion with “America Under Mind Control.”
The book is 125 or so pages, a lengthy number for poetry, but it delivers. There were a few grammatical errors, yet with this type of piece, that matters little. A lack of grammar perfection is actually the opposite of poor writing, when it comes to free verse, because speaking in this tone, with these themes, only makes it seem even more authentic. It’s as if you are watching a man preach to the masses, versus a story that focuses more on technical writing, ignoring the initial point. So, I appreciated the writing and form, and I absolutely recommend this to those whom have courage to take a deeper look, to research, to educate themselves, and to open their eyes to the TRUTH; the ways of the world. Great read & highly recommended.
