"...a brave and compelling call for greater individual consciousness and compassion...an iconoclastic tome of contempt for unjust authoritarianism, with an inspirational silver-lining that gives it all wings."

The lesson to be learned here is to listen to yourself. Where do you get your messages from, your own inner-guide and voice of reason, or Madison Avenue? Is your original voice even yours, or was it branded into your soul through commercials between cartoons? Who are you, really? - Bryant McGill
This is not a book to read for enjoyment. Sorry. If you are even a bit aware, you can see where we are headed and the bad news is no one but you will get YOU through.
You cannot change another person's mind or educate them; this they must do themselves. - Bryant McGill
This book is for YOU. Start now while you can.
When I saw this book I was put off by the cover. It just looked like one of those cheesy self help covers that litter bookstores. Yet something compelled me to buy this book despite my aversion to it. I'm glad that I did.
Reading McGill's book, I was reminded of the talks of J. Krishnamurti on the need for the revolution of mind and the state of the world. All too often we get caught up in our little ideas, beliefs, and attitudes of the world which much of the time are not even really our own. They are often accepted and adopted through our environment, culture, nationalism, etc. and often through some authoritative figure or figures without really much question.
McGill delves into how our collective consciousness is playing out in the world in many ways. One doesn't even have to take McGill's word at face value. They only need to really look honestly at what is happening within the world and more importantly, honestly look within themselves to see what McGill is saying it true.
Many of us have become a society of endless consumerism where more is not enough. Materialism is reigned as god and it doesn't matter what this voracious consumerism and predatory capitalism is doing to others in the world or the world itself, as long as we get the newest "this" or the best "that". Just keep the consequences out of sight, out of mind.
But somewhere within us there is what Thoreau called living a life of quiet desperation. I believe we know deep down inside that material wealth won't save us. We know that what we're doing to the world is killing it.Read more ›
The history of humanity has been long and hard. There have been centuries of all forms of abuse, such as war, slavery and tyranny. Although those forms of life are terrible for each human being at the time, there have been periodic efforts by those seeking freedom and their cause eventually rewarded. No doubt, the "Civil Rights Movement" was one of those steps forward for humanity. But it will continue to take centuries for the world to be at peace.
Bryant outlines the festering sores in the world's communities. He has called attention to these issues with the hope that each of us will help make the changes through personal action and help to accomplish a better society in the years ahead.Read more ›
