Got it for Christmas....notes on the Author:

Quote:Ideas and opinions
"A new civilization is emerging in our lives, and blind men everywhere are trying to suppress it. This new civilization brings with it new family styles; changed ways of working, loving, and living; a new economy; new political conflicts; and beyond all this an altered consciousness as well...The dawn of this new civilization is the single most explosive fact of our lifetimes."

Alvin Toffler, from The Third Wave (1980)[16]

Toffler stated many of his ideas during an interview with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation in 1998.[17] Among a few of his opinions, he said that "Society needs people who take care of the elderly and who know how to be compassionate and honest. Society needs people who work in hospitals. Society needs all kinds of skills that are not just cognitive; they're emotional, they're affectional. You can't run the society on data and computers alone."[17]

His opinions about the future of education, many of which were in Future Shock, have often been quoted. An often misattributed quote, however, is that of psychologist Herbert Gerjuoy: "Tomorrow's illiterate will not be the man who can't read; he will be the man who has not learned how to learn."[18]

Early in his career, after traveling to other countries, he became aware of the new and myriad inputs that visitors received from these other cultures. He explained during an interview that some visitors would become "truly disoriented and upset" by the strange environment, which he described as a reaction to culture shock.[19] From that issue, he foresaw another problem for the future, when a culturally "new environment comes to you ... and comes to you rapidly." That kind of sudden cultural change within one's own country, which he felt many would not understand, would lead to a similar reaction, one of "future shock", which he wrote about in his book by that title.[19] Toffler writes:

We must search out totally new ways to anchor ourselves, for all the old roots — religion, nation, community, family, or profession — are now shaking under the hurricane impact of the accelerative thrust.[15][20]

He Totally challenges your world view and you will never forget it imo. A book about solutions, instead of just problems.

RE: book recommendations
The Demon-Haunted World, by Carl Sagan.

Warning: you may lose a lot of friends if you read it and (even worse!) take it to heart.

Those he commands move only in command,
Nothing in love. Now does he feel his title
Hang loose about him, like a giant’s robe
Upon a dwarfish thief.

Macbeth, act V scene II

RE: book recommendations
Why not read one of the BEST BOOKS EVER WRITTEN ??? I have read thousands of books over the last 50 years and Most of them are GARBAGE. Too much attention to useless detail and very few revelations. I have given the library over 1000 books over the years as I considered them to be TOO LOW YIELD AND VERY HARD TO READ.

This Book is the Best Book I have Ever Read and Im sure you will probably agree as well.

THE TRUE BELIEVER,,,thoughts on the nature of Mass movements. Written By Eric Hoffer, who was a migrant worker / Hobo who was self educated in libraries at night while picking fruit and doing odd jobs during the day. This book hit the book shelves in 1950 and became an instant HIT, so much so, that the Dean of UC Berkly had him teaching classes. Eric Hoffer always complained about how there was too much filler in a book and that you should have at least ONE GOOD IDEA in each chapter; most books have, maybe ONE good idea in the entire text. THE TRUE BELIEVER will help you understand why people join movements like ANTIFA, BLM, Socialism.

Take a few moments to watch the short video :

An excellent choice; indeed, Hoffer's The True Believer and Sagan's The Demon-Haunted World are two sides of the same coin: reading one will make you appreciate the other even more.

I think Thomas Sowell's The legacy of Eric Hoffer here says it quite well. Indeed, the same warning I made about reading Sagan in my post above certainly applies to Hoffer as well!!

By the way, just for fun, do a Google search on "eric hoffer donald trump" and look at the results you'll get!!
