Lies & Extermination
Andy Andrews is a favorite author of mine, first getting my attention with The Noticer. Andrews was raised in Dothan, Alabama, has done some motivational speaking and comedy, but in my judgment he is one of the great writers of our time. He is concise, practical and always takes his readers to statements of value for life. He certainly has an entertaining, engaging style. But his high mark is the practical value that is so clear, chapter after chapter.
He has a book called, How Do You Kill 11 Million People? It is, of course, not a training manual for mass murder. It is a historical account of some of the subtle but wicked aggressive tactics of the Nazi regime from 1933 through 1945, to deceive people into thinking they were being cared for. In fact, they were being systematically sequestered for extermination. This book is all about how easy it is to lie, but beyond that, how quickly people are deceived. He takes this to a profound point: How do truth and lies in the past affect our destiny as a nation? You can get the Kindle version here, at this link.
