This guy is phenomonal...there is nothing else that I know of that speaks out like this book "Resist Not Evil," it is truly a masterpiece. Governments should have it as part of every theory advanced on the floor of the general assembly. We have gone down the wrong road and this book helps open a person's eyes as to why.
