As is obvious to anyone reading these articles, there is little or no reference to any sources. Knowledge contained and presented here comes from a lifetime, almost all of my 65 years and beginning with my parents’ explaining Communism to me as early as age 5. I began reading newspapers as soon as I could hold them up and turn the pages, and for much of my childhood we were fortunately “deprived” of TV – so I read books. And have never stopped. I avoid fiction, unless the work has a significant historical impact in its own right – or as John Lennon titled his first book In His Own Write – like Orwell’s 1984.
The ultimate intent of this “footnote” is to invite the reader to take the time, do the research, and suffer the shock, terror, emotional pain and anxiety of what you, too will discover by trying to prove me wrong. The end result of this effort will have been that you will be immensely better informed, and that, also like me, you will learn what it’s like to experience discovery, and will own the information yourself. Plus, it will very likely drive you into the arms of the Lord Jesus as you see the undeniable hopelessness of this world.
