I don’t find time to read many non-Krsna books these days, but when I do they’re usually spellbinding, even if I can’t find time to finish them; this one I’m still reading, but I’ve read a fair bit.
Looking at The Unexamined Life
“The unexamined life is not worth living” Socrates had written, but there was also a point when the
examination became an excuse for not doing anything
The Budapest Protocol
I find this to be an interesting statement. We can spend a good part of our lives contemplating our existence, but, no matter how fascinating, if we don’t actually achieve anything tangible from our examination, we really need to go outside of our own contemplations to look for authoritative answers.
As usual, I digress. I must have earned a PhD in digression in a past life … there I go again, cheeee!
Back to the Book
The Budapest Protocol itself is a somewhat interesting book regarding life in Budapest after the fall of the Soviet Union, and, where the real power lies. As Lebor points out: Nothing much has actually changed. We are still a “covered totalitarian state,” if I may paraphrase one of his ideas.
Adam Lebor also wrote, “The Tower of Basel,” a non-fiction work that concerns itself with who controls all the money and power, here on Earth. A good book for all the conspiracy theory fanatics.
An interesting thinker. I think we’ll hear more from Lebor, if they don’t lock him away soon for being too close to revealing too many hidden facts.
… an’ thatza fact. Hey!
