Book, like read are four letter words, that we don’t wish to hear. Too busy, we say. So I’ll brief.
Earlier this week I read a book titled, “Tyranny: Twenty Lessons From The Twentieth Century.” The author is Timothy Snyder. I saw many of his interviews and presentations. I have never met him and was never asked to endorse or promote his publication.
I purchased the deliberately inexpensive, simply worded book. It is available in traditional print options, ebook and audible If the world, particularly American’s, are not troubled by the parallels drawn for us by Mr. Snyder, it could not be that we are very brave and tough. It’s simply that we are comatose and might never hear his bell cry. So, please, read the thin, ninety-minute book or at least discuss it. We are running out of excuses, e.g, we didn’t know.
Thanks for your time. Have a great evening.
