Continuation of the old thread, which is available here - https://old.24knews.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=40

The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health (Children's Health Defense)

Hardcover – 16 Nov. 2021
by Robert F Kennedy (Author)



"Dr. Joseph Goebbels wrote that 'A lie told once remains a lie, but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth.' Tragically for humanity, there are many, many untruths emanating from Fauci and his minions. RFK Jr exposes the decades of lies."

~Luc Montagnier, Nobel laureate

A book about the many of the evils of governments written by Jeremy Locke. I tried to look him up to see what else he’s written but unsurprisingly it seems to be a pen name by someone that doesn’t want to be found.

Empire of Deception: The Incredible Story of a Master Swindler Who Seduced a City and Captivated the Nation.

Quote from a comment:-
"This is another colorful story from the history of a city whose history is as colorful as a 4th of July fireworks show. The story is about the Bernie Madoff of Roaring Twenties Chicago, Leo Koretz. While I am a life long resident of the Chicago area and a devotee of Chicago history I must admit never having heard of this story before reading this book. The fact that the scandal was about greedy rich people being bilked and the scandal breaking shortly before the infamous Leopold and Loeb murder case may have been reasons that this incident hasn't garnered any historical mention. Nevertheless, this book was a fair and detailed telling of a classic large scale Ponzi scheme. What makes Koretz's crime so noteworthy is that he managed to keep it in play for neatly 20 years and he swindled his closest friends and family including his own mother."

Diamond Age by Neil Stephenson.
I bought an audio on apple iTunes, The book really good and the narrator is truly excellent IMHO.

Decades into our future, a brilliant nanotechnologist named John Percival Hackworth has just broken the rigorous moral code of his tribe, the powerful Neo-Victorians. He's made an illicit copy of a state-of-the-art interactive device called a young lady's illustrated primer, designed to raise a girl capable of thinking for herself. Unfortunately, for Hackworth, he loses his smuggled copy to a gang of street urchins in a mugging. One of the young thugs presents the primer to his little sister, Nell and suddenly her life - and perhaps the whole future of humanity - is about to be decoded and reprogrammed...vividly imagined, stunningly prophetic, and epic in scope, "The Diamond Age" is a major novel from one of the most visionary writers of our time.

You should also try Snow Crash, which was the first book I read by him => https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snow_Crash

I was really into all the cyberpunk novels in the 90s—William Gibson, Bruce Sterling, etc.

I enjoyed William Gibson and Iain M Banks culture books, I wish that I’d kept them and lots of other stuff but but they went to the charity shop when I was moving a long time ago. The silly bugger I am :doh: :crazy:
