Off on a Reading Jag
Feel free to join me. Serialized novel available here.
Here's an excerpt. I'm sure they won't mind a little free advertizing.
"Are you a religious man, Benjamin?"
"You have to understand," Jordan said. "I grew up in the Holy Land."
"No, I have no use for religion."
"Do you want me to be blunt?"
"From what I've seen, Karl Marx got it wrong. Religion isn't the opium of the people. It's the LSD."
"What do you mean?"
"Opium numbs and tranquilizes. LSD inspires psychedelic visions—and violent delusions. It drives people to acts of destruction—and self-destruction. It seduces people with the promise of enlightenment, but it robs them of the ability to think for themselves."
"That's an awfully cynical way of looking at it."
"As I said, I grew up in the Holy Land."
