Do you ever wonder why mankind seems to find it impossible to learn from the lessons history has to teach? Why is it mankind can look upon the things societies have done in the past and assume the very same thing can be done today but obtain a different outcome? Rome fell for a lot of reasons but one of the main reasons was their inability to control the nations borders. Ring any bells? Germany printed tons of money (literally) and destroyed their currency. At one time Argentina was the fourth largest economy on the planet, prior to destroying their economy with socialized everything. Far flung wars have brought down many nations.

These are just a hand full of examples, but it seems our own nation is thumbing its nose at history and the examples that cry out from the past. The romans coined the term “bread and circuses.” It meant, feed and entertain the masses and they wont pay any attention to what your government is doing. Today Hollywood practically has its own wing in the White House and GMO corn and soy are fattening the masses. Few seem to notice what is taking place in our nation, let alone care.

Now please don’t be going all political on me here. If you take a political position then you’ve already blinded yourself to at least some of the realities taking place in our nation. Both parties are as guilty as the other in taking our country down this road. You simply cannot support either party without supporting war, inflation and the loss of liberty. I don’t claim to have all the answers, but even a casual glance at history clearly lays bare the errors of our ways.

So why do I bring this up? It’s what led to the writing of my book. Take some of the major lessons history has to teach, apply them to the present situation in the U.S. and write a fictional tale of how it might all turn out.

It’s my first novel so I focused on two things I’ve always found enjoyable in the books I read – well developed characters you can relate too and imagery that draws you right into the moment. Or as one reviewer on Amazon noted “Fantastic Imagery!”

I believe its a book that will stay with you long after you put it down. At times creepy, other times funny, I think you’ll find it to be a page turner. I hope you’ll check out.

“Man’s past is filled with truth’s shed blood.”

I hope you’ll check it out – Truth’s Blood.

Have a great day folks!
