What book have you read that everyone should read and why?
Interesting viewpoint, Esteban. I don't have it in front of me, but I believe the author hints at this sort of synergy, when he discusses how to react when you detect a situation when one's thinking is likely to be flawed or biased: not to try and eliminate that flawed thinking, but rather to be aware, and react appropriately.

What book have you read that everyone should read and why?
I suggest two books for understanding how the world works: people who haven't read them waste a lot of time discussing reality as it is not! 1 Thinking, Fast and Slow, by the Nobel-prizewinning Daniel Kahneman [2011] 2 The Shock Doctrine, by Naomi Klein. Political essentials in one book. My only reservation for this is that if you have not read widely enough beforehand, it may be too big a jump from your current position for you to take. It would be a good idea to go first to YouTube and watch "What I've Learned About US Foreign Policy_ The War Against the Third World"; and a couple of things by John Perkins. For simple practical advice - almost anything about Permaculture.

Malte Spitz: Your phone company is watching
It is also interesting to note (and this should be more widely known) that the authorities can use your phone to bug you even if it is switched off. You can see a recording of Fox News announcing this, if you go to YouTube, and search for "The Penny Drops Part One". You will see this section at 5 minutes 8 seconds. Then there is all the information on your computer, any time you connect to the internet. Of course they can turn on your computer camera and microphone when they want, without your knowledge.
