    Story

    In a wide-ranging, insightful, and often entertaining discussion that draws on a variety of sources, including religious texts and popular culture, David Dark talks about the sacred obligation we have to question our tightly held opinions and beliefs about such subjects as God, governments, religion, advertisements, history, news channels, and our often tragically misguided interpretations of Scripture.

    Overall

    With such a thought provoking title, I really had high hopes for this book. The author then proceeds to create a paradigm in which he condemns anyone with an opinion about anything and uses great authorities from South Park, The Simpsons and the greatest of all, Steven Colbert, to bolster his flimsy and self-aggrandizing "thoughts. It was so fascinating to hear him condemn the masses, especially the religious masses for blindly following their religion or being spoon fed and believing everything the "evil media" produce, at the same time he praises the ever popular and profound 80's rockers Tears for Fears for their musical introduction of global warming before it became mainstream truth. It leaves one to reflect on what Mr. Dark has been spoon fed.

    Perhaps if I spent endless hours each day watching the television and recording all the quotes which bolster my views, I would've have enjoyed this book. Unfortunately, I don't watch TV and enjoy reading and listening to books which are thoughtful, thought provoking and interesting. This book fills none of those criteria.
