The second one’s the one, thanks man. I just loved his description of New York City.Nah, that, was probably me LOL.
You're thinking of one of these:
I like those, took pretty extensive notes when reading 1Q84 a few years back, like 30 pages,Haruki Murakami:
I haven't read Hardboiled Wonderland, but I can relate to that odd alteration in consciousness. The Windup Bird Chronicle had the same effect on me. Think I will get me a copy of Hardboiled as well.I have more than 7000 books on my e-book reader but this one I don`t have it. And now I must have it.
I frequently suspect Murakami is saying something I'm not quite able to catch. The Japanese tend to be vague and subtle, saying much by saying little. I love his novels (the ones I've read, at least), but sometimes I wonder if you need to be Japanese to really grasp his intent?Murakami uses a lot of symbolism to
write between the lines, some think. For example, the "seven stars" (IIRC) cigarette brand in his books,
some people think references the star of communism that you still see on the Vietnamese flag.
Later in Japan I found out it was a real brand, not a Morley's-type invention.
I think you are a smart man, and you could do it. [and I haven't written any books on him or anything, so I don't have any great authority on this.]I frequently suspect Murakami is saying something I'm not quite able to catch.

I agree with that. They talk around the point, rather than going directly to it. Generally speaking, of course.The Japanese tend to be vague and subtle, saying much by saying little.
I am reading this now, and I have some thoughts and comments."Farnham's Freehold" by Robert A. Heinlein
Im finishing Which way western man right now...'Which Way Western Man?" by William Gayley Simpson. This a dense 1,000 page volume of one man's lifelong search for the truth. A monumental work exposing the roots of the Jewish sickness that has overtaken the West. It's expensive, just like all the books they don't want you reading. You can buy a copy here
On Amazon its going for $120 for a used softcover and over $970 for a used hardcover. It's no light read but I believe it is amply worth your time and money.

'Amusing Ourselves to Death', by Neil Postman. A very thought provoking book on the effect Television has on the human mind. This was written around 1985, so it pre-dates video games, but some of what Postman had to say can surely be extended to other forms of electronic media, to include movies and videos. This is one of the few (if not only) attempts I have ever seen to evaluate the impact this kind of media has on our psyches, assumptions, and mental clarity. It's not just some thundering 'No Fun Allowed!' screed, but a genuine attempt to evaluate what the media we swim in are doing to us.

'Darkness At Noon', by Arthur Koestler. Koestler joined the German Communists as a young man but resigned in 1938. He published this novel, his total renunciation of the Commie Scourge, in 1940.

And speaking of Koestler, he also wrote 'The Thirteenth Tribe'. I own this book but haven't read it yet; if anyone is interested in reading it too it would be interesting to compare notes as we go along. Here is the description from Amazon:
Koestler advances the thesis that Ashkenazi Jews are not descended from the historical Israelites of antiquity, but from Khazars, a Turkic people originating in and populating an empire north of and between the Black Sea and Caspian Sea. Koestler's hypothesis is that the Khazars - who converted to Judaism in the 8th century - migrated westwards into current Eastern Europe (primarily Ukraine, Poland, Belarus, Lithuania, Hungary and Germany) in the 12th and 13th centuries when the Khazar Empire was collapsing.
You are the only other human I have run into who has read this book. Unless maybe others just don't mention it? People I have bought this for have given up in the first chapter,Im finishing Which way western man right now...
Basically the best book regarding the current political and cultural affairs I have ever red. I would highly recommend this book to anyone. William Gayley Simpson was a true scholar and potential mystic and visionary. I would buy it NOW before the price spikes up to 500$ ...
I can read through huge books, such as war and peace, dune etc.. but which way western man is absolutely massive and basically every single page is filled with amazing insights and unique novel views on various topics. I will certainly go back and re-read important chapters with a highlighter when I am done. There is really nothing else like it, kind of like the only book or final book one would need to read regarding race and politics and spirituality ...You are the only other human I have run into who has read this book. Unless maybe others just don't mention it? People I have bought this for have given up in the first chapter,
I think this book is the most important thing for any dissident to read. More important than Mein Kampf, more important than My Awkening. Just an amazing labor of love and commitment that should be familiar to us all. Maybe if it was split into two volumes more people might be willing to take it on? Its size may be a bit daunting. I read it on Kindle before I bought a physical copy and so never considered its length before being consumed by his wisdom, thoughts, and insights.
I agree, Simpson may have been a genuine mystic. I met Simpson before I found the DS and I must say he prepared the ground of my mind.
In 1996, Darwin's Black Box helped to launch the intelligent design movement: the argument that nature exhibits evidence of design, beyond Darwinian randomness. It sparked a national debate on evolution, which continues to intensify across the country. From one end of the spectrum to the other, Darwin's Black Box has established itself as the key intelligent design text -- the one argument that must be addressed in order to determine whether Darwinian evolution is sufficient to explain life as we know it.
This is a habit that I need to break myself out of, and I apologize for linking to Amazon in the past on the old forum, because I did do that a lot. I will try to refrain from doing so in the future though, because you're correct. There are other places to buy the same book that is on Amazon, or to read the review of the book. Likely those places are also still linked in with Amazon's vast global network because that's just how it is unfortunately, but the individual dealers usually have their own direct sites additional to the account they use to buy/sell over Amazon.I know this will not go over well but shouldn't we be the last ones to post Amazon link after Amazon link? Link Goodreads or anything else for reviews. If you want to order a book, go to a book store and order it.
I confess I haven't read even a fraction of what you recommend on this topic. I'm curious, what is your opinion on the Jewish culpability for the Bolshevik Revolution and the mass murders that followed? Can you recommend a book that would illuminate the subject?You could start with just those 10 I've listed above and by looking at their bibliographies, their sources, be well on your way toward having a complete history of the Jews in Europe at least and a good start in America too.
