Noting that race, religion, and politics (RRP) as the framework of my thinking, I recognize that this is hard for many people to accept. I get it. It’s also hard to convey—because these are deemed divisive.
Substantive, yet Provocative Message
Partly because many of us has been taught not to talk about RRP, people seek to avoid anything that can be divisive. Seen as the “third rail,” touch them and get electrocuted! Hence, I do not relish making these points.
I expect and understand that most do not want to embrace my conclusions. This is a bridge too far for most. Fair enough. All I ask is that you consider my premise as circumstances unfold.
Realizing some will offended by my conclusions does not discount their validity. Wading into the most polarizing events of our societal dynamic brings inevitable detractors. Even active opposition. It’s expected. It’s also why our divisions are so deep seated.
Thankfully, some will be enlightened, even inspired by what they read. The dots connected are so profound and the scope is so wide as to make the “picture” that I present hit you like an anvil. Frankly, when I started researching and writing, I didn’t see the full scope and implications. Fleshing this out even brought chills up my spine.
In short, this book matters because its implications and the emotions surrounding it are so great. It matters to us all, even if you don’t want to see it. Even if you reject it. Even if you are offended by it. Sooner or later, we all will deal with it.
Two trains are on the same train, heading toward each other. Is there a switch to change course? My hope this book will act as a “switch” to show us what lies ahead—and to make necessary course corrections.
