Many of us are suffering in today’s world. We are prone to addictions, such as street drugs, prescription drugs, alcohol, gambling, sex, shopping, theft, and more. We are addicted to the escapism that comes from dumping money into television and movie streaming services, video games, books, and more. We love fantasy, horror, and true crime. We all long to be superheroes in our own stories. Many of us wonder why we are even here.
We watch some of the people around us commit suicide, including beloved celebrities like Chester Bennington, Chris Cornell, Avicii, Anthony Bourdain, and Robin Williams. We wonder about the state that the world is in. If we educate ourselves on our own world history, we will become painfully aware that others are more in control of our lives than we ever were.
I spent half of my life being naïve. I took the blue pill. I focused only on my immediate family to the exclusion of all others. I didn’t follow our world history or politics. I never turned on the news. I didn’t want to see what was going on in the world. I didn’t use social media. If someone spoke about these things around me, I walked away or shut them down.
Then, I took the red pill. I regretted taking the red pill. I regretted opening my eyes to what was happening in the world. I traveled the world to see all the things I had missed before.
This little book is about the things in the world we wish we could unlearn if we were happy being naïve. This little book holds some of the reasons people commit suicide to escape the real problems that are forming around them. This little book is blunt and painfully honest and raw. Listen at your own risk.
