This is a seditious book. Its content extols and embraces the purpose and practice of freedom in a very unfree world.Read the vaunted declarations of many of the great prophets of personal freedom. Join Ayn Rand, Friedrich Nietzsche, Oscar Wilde and many others in their campaign for the freedom of expression, the freedom of thought, the freedom to challenge mass complacency and the crippling status quo. This is a crash course in the subversive art of personal empowerment; a mandate to stand against a world where personal liberty is more of a myth than an actuality.This is a compendium of fiery rhetoric, radical sentiment, and a fearlessness that is often found in places where liberty is still accepted and valued.These outspoken firebrands have taken a stand against the threat of what I like to call, de-liberation, that is the deliberate and systematic stripping away of personal liberty by garnering the consent of the thoughtless and the complacent. You will almost certainly be shocked, offended, and alarmed by some of what you read here, but at the end of the day, I would wager that you will inevitably find yourself impressed and awe inspired; basking in the presence of the truly brilliant and of the undeniably heroic.
Phoenyx and Cole survived the end of the world. The alien invasion that took out most of the population and crippled any form of government—they’d fought that, and they’d survived.Or at least, they’re trying to.They battle starvation, fear, exhaustion, and death every single day, and while the future doesn’t look bright, at least they’re fighting for it.Hope is hard to come by, but when they need it most, it does come—in the form of a different alien entirely—beautiful, with the wings of a fairy, the voice of a siren…And the teeth of a vampire.Sometimes hope is most devastating of all.Never Trust Beautiful Things.
Be careful as you approach the garden of spinal thorns: some of the flowers and bones are too fragile and too helpless, others are spiky and unbent. They can sting or heal you. The same applies to words. Some of them will soothe you, make you feel loose, and some may hurt you, like an unavoidable truth you never wanted to hear. But in the end, you will know that it was all needed, so you could grow into the beautifully-ornamented skeleton you support, flourished and blossomed. With spikes and all.This is an autopsy of the heart and the soul of the young.
