    "Some truths should be known"

    In the concluding book of his Fourth Realm series, John re-iterates and further enlightens readers to the truth of the open world we live in. I appreciate that John doesn't pin a global conspiracy on any government, or government agency, but simply points out that when a government, or Google for that matter, aggregates enough information and provides search and index capabilities into that data, it can and will be mis-used. Further, John points out that scare tactics by those who seek dominion are used to persuade populations into relinquishing their freedom (e.g. Patriot Act) to obtain safety. However, those who seek to dominate are the least trustworthy and most dangerous humans of our race. As a cold warrior, I was taught that among other things America was great because we didn't have gulags in Siberia where people snatched from the street were sent without due process. Now America has Guantanamo in Cuba, and who is to say who's in there? If our government collects file cabinets full of information of each citizen, who is to say some foreign power cannot break into the database and manipulate those running for, or those in political office or other positions of great responsibility. We should all ponder how our emotions are being used against us, and perhaps John's next book should be "How to live off the Grid". I was entertained, educated and edified by John's concluding book, and highly recommend it. And of course Scott Brick is among the finest of readers.
