Usually I recommend books of spiritual significance, or related to empath's issues, or dealing with the subject of this blog, Twin Souls. But this book stands out in its importance to these times.
I know of people, as you do, that believe in order to keep their spiritual focus, they refuse to read the news, listen to news-related audio or video, or even keep up with local happenings. I understand the desire to keep a calm, unsullied mind, but these are unusual times. We need to keep one foot on the spiritual path and one foot in the world, as it needs our positive and awakening energy. I encourage you, spiritual warrior, to adopt that stance.
That said, the book I recommend today is Fascism: A Warning
by former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. Co-written with pen-master Bill Woodward, it is both enlightening and informative while giving plenty of food for thought. I did not find it an easy read, but I read one chapter at a time and then thought about the ideas presented.
In the beginning chapters, Albright examines how fascism has come to being in different countries over the last century or so. She examines how Mussolini and Hitler came to power, and how fascists are becoming more and more prevalent in our world today. It is a warning, but it also holds hope. For you see, fascists thrive in a climate of fear and ignorance. By reading this book, you will be armed with knowledge and power. Read this book.
